Synchronicity, signs & symbols always present themselves. I awake from a night full of dreams, dreams of tigers. We are kindly invited to sit for breakfast by the campsite owners where we are served a hearty breakfast. To the left of me where we are seated are 2 paintings of tigers which automatically brings me back into my dream state, not hard in these early hours of the morning. Breakfast is finished and we are once again back on the road..
There isn’t much to todays walk, the same routine, fairly flat, long winded road walked. Our feet are starting to feel slightly deformed for these long days without any days of rest since fort William. The sea is is still seen & we are still pretty much walking along Scotlands East coast. A few miles from Wick, the town looks rather big & it is I suppose a hub in its own right, with an airport, a Lidl & a big Tesco. As we walk in, myself & Adam are discussing eating options. We are both still undecided. As we arrive at the campsite the gentlemen serving us has a large tiger tattoo on his right arm. Again this tiger keeps reappearing itself to me today. We walk into town & decide to grab a curry. Upon Adam ordering a beer, he asked for cobra & the waiter replies ‘ We don’t have cobra, but we have tiger’ ha ha. Adam orders a passanda and I laugh at him, especially after recommending 2 great options, he receives the blanded curry on the menu & as expected quite dis appointed with the lack of taste and obviously unfresh meat. Either way, an ice cream from a local newsagent makes all well & we depart back to the site to rest and prepare for our final day on this challenge.
