At 10 am on Wednesday 12th August, Tommy and I crossed the Tamar River at Horsebridge, entering Cornwall in the process. When strangers ask me now where are we going, I can no longer say Cornwall because we are already in Cornwall.
Relieved to be out of the elements, from the comfort of a dry sofa at our pit stop today on the edge of Bodmin Moor, I am very pleased to announce that I have an estimated time for our arrival at our destination, St. Michael’s Mount. I plan to be on the causeway at Marazion that leads to the Mount at low tide:
2 pm, Thursday, 20th August.
Please make a note of it in your diary. I do hope some of our friends, maybe even friends whom we have met on the way, as well as some of our followers, can make it down to Mounts Bay to join us on this momentous occasion, and that there is a representative from the RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association) who can rattle a tin for me. This is a busy time of year for the Mount, so there will be a throng of visitors who will be making their way over the causeway to the Isle.
I am also in need of a volunteer to pick up any deposits Tommy might decide to leave on the Mount and I still need to get the all clear from the island management for our final ascent to the chapel at the top where I would like to present the St Cuthberts Beads that the community of Lindisfarne gave me to bring back.
Tommy will be decked in his Ribbon Banner, so let’s hope it will be a gloriously sunny day, unlike the day we began our venture! A few friendly faces would be a real bonus. X
