I have finally arrived at the Lizard hostel after a journey that took 10 hours. The problems started with signal failure at Swindon. I arrived at Reading after the time that the Penzance train was due to leave. Luckily that train was half an hour late. Unluckily the air conditioning was broken. Not ideal! I got to Redruth just before 3.00pm to catch the bus only to find that on school days it leaves at 2.55pm and had gone. The next bus was at 5.00pm. I therefore was able to get a late lunch/early tea and tried to stay calm. Anyway I am here now and all set for an early start tomorrow before it gets too hot. Many thanks to Pam who kindly took me to the station.
