I Would Walk 500 Miles

Had a great weekend at the Looe Music Festival last month, what a stunning location for a music festival, right on the beach, in the picturesque village of Looe in Cornwall.  The music was excellent, complimented perfectly by the weather and the cider and made the whole 500 mile drive worth it.  It only took 11 hours, 3 coffee stops, 1 car ferry, 1 tank of petrol and 1 lama in order to navigate the worst of the UK's traffic. By the time we got there, The Proclaimers were in full flight with 'I Would Walk 500 Miles'  - the irony wasn't lost.
