So Devon looks much like Cornwall. Looking forward to crossing the moors and hope to see more wild horses.

Crossed into Devon today, England's 3rd largest county. With more than 200 miles of coastline, tourism is one of the county's largest industries. Attractions include Buckfast Abbey, Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks and Dartmouth, home of the Naval Academy.

I'm sure we will have at least one Devon Cream Tea, as well as sampling thr local ciders and scrumpy.

Population is just over 7,000. Weather is cool, 9 Fahrenheit today with fog and rain predicted for the next few days. Tempting to stay put for a while, but once I get some clean laundry and my boots dry out, I'll push on.

Approaching Launceston... farmland giving way to suburban housing. Looking forward to finding a nice pub and enjoying a chicken and onion pastie before leaving Cornwall.

Finally on the road again...

Monday, November 11: 3.55 miles, 78.83 miles.

Felt so good to start moving again. I'm only 6.17 miles from Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall. The market town is dominated by a Norman Castle. In Saxon times the town was called Dunheved. One of the attractions now is a lovingly-restored steam railway.

Shortly after leaving Launceston, we will cross the Tamar River into Devon, the next county on our journey

I am somewhere behind you. Problems this week not only with the rain (even here in Phoenix). but my computer was down, and that really set me back a bit.

I will catch up as fast as I can, but I don't want to miss a bit of this beautiful Cornish countryside.

Isn't it fun learning about the places we're near? I've added the cycling guide to my Christmas wish list, but in the meantime i'm following Mark Moxon's website. I find it really interesting that there is no "right" or "wrong" route for this walk. As the crow flys, it's either 635 or 695 miles. The walking routes i've checked range from 900 to 1100 miles, with Mark's one of the longest.

What is the distance for the cycling guide you're using?

Good going today, Denise. You're right, we can't let the English rains keep us inside, although the Scottish snows might be a different story.

I've ordered a pint for you at the pub... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thursday, October 31: 3.6 miles, 58.36 miles

Have you seen signs for any of the tin mine sites along the way? Tin mining started in Cornwall and West Devon in the bronze age, which ended in Europe in 600 BC. The last mine closed in 1998. The Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site was established in 1998, with 18 sites across the two counties.

You are still way ahead of me. noticed lots of rain in Cornwall lately. I wish we had some here in Phoenix, although it was snowing yesterday in Flagstaff.

Maybe you can find a pub and wait for me there and give you poor, tired feet a break.

I am still pushing on...

I think my feet are getting used to walking. Blisters are healing, and no new ones developing.

Bad wind storm in England last week-end, and seeing some broken trees and roof damages. Glad I wasn't out in a tent during the storm!

I am using the Spark People fitness map as well as a publication I received from England on Alibris: Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle Guide by Simon Brown. ISBN: 13-978-1-58284-188-1.

I also go online and look up the individual towns we are traveling through, and read about the history, etc., and the check the weather for that area.

I found on Alibris the book you mentioned in your blog, and will purchase it next payday.

Can't eat them as often as I'd like because I'm sensitive to gluten. But once in a while they're delicious. My favourite is chicken with onion. Yours?

Didn't know that about Henry Vlll. Read about Mary Queen of Scotts, and Ivan the Terrible. I am working my way backwards through the kings and queens ( and czars) of the world.

Good day to catch up on some local history, since this Cornish rain is keeping us indoors.

I LOVE Cornish Pasties! There is a Cornish Pastie shop on the corner where I catch the bus to go to work. I eat there often. My favorite place. I can call ahead with my order, pick it up, and catch the bus. Great eating! You?

Wow! I know that now. And what a beautiful cathedral! It was built between 1880 and1910, and was the first Protestant cathedral to be constructed in England since Paul's of London in 1675!

The Holy Trinity church is a 'must see' also!

This is fun!

Feet sore... I think there was a wrinkle in my sock... but I kept going. Lots of bandaids in my backpack.

Find a nice pub, Denise, I'll be there soon!

Hope you enjoyed the goodies. Keep up the good garden work.

Gail,
Good to see you. I am running a bit behind (as usual). Should start shortly.

Hi - I'm new to this team and to distance walking. My name is Gail, I live in Southern Ontario, Canada, and turned 70 on September 25. I've always dreamed of doing a walking vacation. Perhaps this virtual walk will held me decide whether my dream can become a reality.

I'm excited about this new challenge. Our youngest daughter is getting married in May, 2014, and this walk is part of my plan for losing weight before the wedding.
