Well, here we go… and here is a picture of us going:
Western Greyhound 501 - at Lands End
And here is another picture as evidence that we actually
started at Lands End:
So, highlights of the day so far? Well,
it turns out that the problem of ‘the suitcase handle’ is going to follow us on
this trip… with sporadic photographs including said handle being released… who
knows we could start a few competitions – spot the handle or where’s handle?.
We arrived nicely early at Lands
End to find that, due to the signpost being a privatised thing, it was missing
and not due to arrive until 10am! There was, however, a temporary Lands End
signpost, which did quite nicely so photographs were taken and we moved on to
the bus stop – proudly displaying its OmniSTOP sign. We also had surprise
visitor number 1; a lady called Anne who looked after Cariad for some months
earlier this year. A lovely surprise!
And so departed Lands End, on
the first bus of the day; Western Greyhound (501). Michael sitting up top and
at the front with his Wife, Wendy… they make a lovely couple (even if she is
indulging his bus fetish!) Surprisingly (to me at least) this was a double
decker – squeezing itself down the lanes and under low flying trees!
Arriving at Penzance Bus
Station, Phil (who very kindly put us up for the night and gave us a lift from
St Austell to Lands End) was there to greet us with a smile! However, the
connection to Truro was ready and waiting for us (well, it was the earlier bus…
which was running late probably due to a slow moving tractor). And so we find
ourselves in Truro – eating a cake and drinking coffee.
Oh, and the saga of the
suitcase? Well, let’s just say we had a result at Argos and things are
trundling once again. Picture to follow once we can work out how to get them
off of Michaels camera!
