I was a little worried that I might get disturbed last night as I’d pitched next to an intersection of footpaths but I was undisturbed until I left at 7.30 in the morning. I say undisturbed, but the night noises were wonderful, the tawny owls hooting incredibly loud and close and the foxes and badgers were doing their thing.
At about 3am I woke up soaked in sweat; I’d zipped up all the flaps on the tent to keep out the insects but the internal temperature had risen to somewhere near boiling point. Over the past few nights I’ve used the sleeping bag as a mattress and just slept in the liner. Tonight I’m high on a cliff top and I think the breeze will keep me cooler.
Had a good walk along the Dorset coast today – yes i had breakfast in Lyme Regis which is in Dorset. Hooray!
Up and down hills all day – Golden Cap was a killer.
Set up camp nice and early, around 5.30, so that I can have a bit of a rest.
