Day 3 - The wind has dropped and the heat has increased.

We have left our base camp at Wick this morning after 3 days of superb hospitality and breakfasts. The Harbour Guest House has served as a brilliant first resting place. We move on to a camp site for the next 6 days.

There was hardly a cloud in the sky as I set off from Navidale this morning. The peak elevation today is around 400 ft so it's not as bad as yesterday. It's very hot now so I dread to think what it will be like at noon.

Thanks to those sponsors who donated since my last post. The fund is nudging nicely towards £10,000 and stands at £9695.50. Amazing!
