Edinburgh – John O Groats – Tongue

The alarm went off the painful time of 5.42, but we need to get going. It is an other 4 hours by car than 60 Miles. So … Well… Calculations are funny things and they are always go on their own stretchy way. We got to John O Groats about 2ish. Quick cup of tea and we trundled off to The sign. We were all standing there ready for the big adventure smiling hopefully in Carl’s camera when an evil seagull came and thought Hahaaaa…. and landed a huge sploshy poo on right top of my head. Good luck hey… Silly silly concept. (and the tonight programme is …. washing my hair … not as would anybody ask me out). Anyway 3 of us finally set off just after 3. The first 20 miles were really good mood is high, landscape stunning,weather fine. After Thurso I continued on my own still ok for an other 20 miles. But then I got a bit beyond myself and the hills just kept coming  towards me in a relentless manner, it was hard. Arrived 10.15 pm to the youth hostel. Lovely Penny has prepared this fantastic meal which was just a life saver. Shower and my hair smells nice not a speckle of bird poo. Off to bed now … Long day tomorrow
