Breakfast in Uttoxeter. Bad traffic around Birmingham (plus an accident) meant our journey took 7.5 hours, instead of 5. First Cornish pasty at Cornwall services. Alphabet playlist on Spotify. Pitched tent at Boscrege Campsite. Decent facilities. Went to Sainsburys for supplies...rescued 4 calves on the road on the way back!
