SWCP #44 & 45a Polperro to Seaton

What a fabulous day on the coast path (although we rarely have a crap one)! The core four were out again today, and bashed out 8.5 miles according to the book, then 10 miles if you believe technology. JC missed … Continue reading

SWCP #43 Polruan to Polperro

We were very lucky weather-wise, as we so often are on the coast path. What started as a very miserable drizzly, windy day turned into a very pleasant, albeit strenuous, walk. It was great to have LL back on the … Continue reading

SWCP #42 – Par to Fowey

This was one of the shortest walks we have ever done: it didn’t seem real when we finished as we all felt we needed to do another 5 miles to make it worthwhile! Having slogged through so many wet miles … Continue reading

SWCP #41 Pentewan Sands to Par

A lovely sunny, yet slippery walk over the cliffs from Pentewan to Par, via Porthpean, Charlestown and Carlyon Bay. I have thoroughly enjoyed this stretch of coast as these are the first few places in Cornwall I ever visited and … Continue reading

SWCP #40 & 41 Hemmick Beach to Pentewan

This was a bit of logistical headache and somewhat of a gamble with the weather. As we drove down the A30 the rain was lashing down on the windscreen and I’m pretty sure the passengers in the other car were … Continue reading

SWCP – an unprecedented pause…

It saddened me greatly when it dawned on me last weekend that we’d have to hang up our boots for some time… The thought of weekends slipping by unwalked, and unexplored on the coast path fills me with dread and … Continue reading

SWCP #39b & #40a – Carne Beach to Hemmick Beach

Starting as we meant to go on, another walk was planned for the following weekend. Back down to JC, RS and I wandering through Veryan Bay in grey drizzle and wind, and through the film set of Miss Pereguine’s Home … Continue reading

SWCP #38 & #39a -Falmouth to Porthscatho, Porthcatho to Carne Beach

The first walk of the year set us literally on the right path: sunshine, blue skies and the bar set very high with an excellent start to another year of walking! Highlights were the beach of seals and for RS … Continue reading

SWCP #37 – Helford to Falmouth

Full of a decent breakfast, and minus two walkers, RS, LN and DP set out to do a shorter stint from Helford back to Falmouth. We might have been slightly fuzzy from the previous night’s shenanigans – enjoying the variety … Continue reading

SWCP #36b Porthoustock to Helford

The Half Way point was reached finally! Probably about 2 or 3 months later than I wanted or had hoped to, but reached nevertheless! We were joined by DP for her first walk, and CW came back again – having … Continue reading
