Taking Advantage of a Beautiful Day
We are almost there and we cannot believe it. Yet again the conditions have been perfect – no rain or wind, almost balmy temperatures and some periods of sunshine. We have seen deer, seals and highland cattle, numerous sea birds and even a tall ship in Helmsdale harbour.
We have been treated to a range of delicious goodies from the back of Alison’s friend, Julie’s car and we have tasted the best hot chocolate in the world in Dornoch. The roads in the morning were spectacular again – though the A9 during the afternoon was not so much fun! The weather was so good that a few intrepid Cyclopaths decided to cycle a few extra miles today on order to slightly shorten their final day tomorrow. We were treated to a stunningly beautiful ride in the early evening sunshine while others may have to cycle that road in rather inclement weather tomorrow – watch this space.
We are feeling a huge sense of excitement, anticipation, and so much sadness that our epic adventure is almost over. Bring on Day 14……
