Hello Dear Reader,
We made it to Wadebridge and got out on the Camel Trail today. It was bitterly cold and I was half way there before the warmth I’d generated in my body made it to my hands or ears. We also cycled the five and a half miles there in a head wind, so strong we couldn’t talk to each other over the top of it. We don’t bother with the Camel Trail in good weather as it is the M25 of cycle routes and jam full when ever the sun is out. Today, it was blustery, over cast and thankfully quiet.
Padstow was equally quiet. As it was so cold, we went to the pub for a coffee, much cheaper than anything that has the word ‘Stein!’ outside it. The fire was lit, and we sunk into big leather sofas and enjoyed the rare treat of someone else making it and washing up.
Cycling back was easy as the wind was behind us. It took us forty five minutes to get there and only thirty to get back. I now feel rejuvenated and ready to face a busy week. Quite an expensive weekend for us. Paid to park twice and two coffees. Probably the most money I have spent in a very long time. In better weather we usually sit outside on a bench and drink our own coffee.
Anyone else on extreme money saving measures? Everything is so expensive that I’m sure we’re not the only ones counting every penny.
