The fifth day to go by in blur of cold and wet. Yet again I pour water out of my boots before getting into the sleeping bag. After strong gale force winds and heavy rain my tent starts to leak so I cover my sleeping bag with my jacket to protect it. I pack up as much as I can in case the tent collapses in the middle of the night. I write in my diary at 3 am: “If it gets any harder I can’t go on”.

The track from Skiary built above the shoreline. I remember feeling grateful for the toil required to make this in such a location, coming as I had from a week of pathless walking through similar terrain.

Wet feet time – I really should have crossed this when I could have jumped across a few miles back!

The Perimeter is a labour of love: it’s taken 454 days of walking, hundreds of hours of planning and thousands of hours of editing. If you have the means, I’d appreciate your support by buying a print or contributing so I can continue to share the project with you.
