MOST RECENT

Just some multidimensional hand-carved furniture at the Legion of Honor. Went in for #truthxbeauty but the whole place is filled with amazingly intricate work by noble humans who preceded us.

While I was traveling alone, I got a lot of offers from men to show me "real Mexico if you want to party". 😁😅 Lovers Beach is a private beach cove that can only be reached by kayak or water-taxi. It's a quieter swimming hole at the coast of the Sea of Cortez. 5 minutes away is Divorce Beach (Playa del Divorcio) bordering the Pacific Ocean known for its treacherous currents.

They did it!! 🤩🎉🤗🎊☝️Immensely proud of what they have achieved. Over 1000 miles cycled and over £25000 raised for Cancer Research.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported and donated along the way 🚴🏼‍♂️🚴🏼‍♂️ (there’s still time to donate if you wanted to!) #johnogroats #landsend #jogle #cycle #inmemoryofadam #cancerresearch

On this day 377 years ago: The Merchant Royal, carrying a treasure of over 100,000 pounds of gold (worth over £1 billion today), is lost at sea off Land's End.

Merchant Royal also known as Royal Merchant, was a 17th-century English merchant ship lost at sea off Land's End, Cornwall in rough weather on 23 September 1641. On board were at least 100,000 pounds of gold (over 1.5 billion USD in today's money), 400 bars of Mexican silver (another 1 million) and nearly 500,000 pieces of eight and other coins, making it one of the most valuable wrecks of all times.

The Merchant Royal spent three years trading with Spanish colonies in the West Indies from 1637 to 1640. England was at peace with Spain at this time. The Merchant Royal and her sister-ship, the Dover Merchant, called into Cadiz on their way home to London. By all accounts she was leaking badly after her long voyage.

The Merchant Royal went on leaking after she and her sister-ship left Cadiz and, when the pumps broke down, she sank off Land's End in rough weather on 23 September 1641.

Eighteen men drowned in the sinking. Captain Limbrey and 40 of his crew got away in boats and were picked up by Dover Merchant. It is not likely that the treasure was taken aboard the Dover Merchant.

The wind has dropped, the skies cleared and we really are on the edge of the world. #treenfarmcampsite #landsend #vanlife #cornwall

The reward for my journey was this lovely sunset.

Another 3-mile trek today, this time to Land's End and back. Land's End is Britain's westernmost point.

Stupidly, the sign isn't AT the real Land's End, but don't you worry, I walked out there.
