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

SWCP #35b & 36a Kennack Sands to Porthoustock

After a reluctant pause of about a month, we tried to get back on the path. By this time, however, the weather really had turned. We seemed to have a succession of wet and windy weekends, and becuase of the … Continue reading

SWCP #33b, 34, 35a Predannack Wallas to Kennack Sands

The weather kept us off the path for a few weeks, and rightly so – torrential rain battered the south west and when the sun finally came out, RS, JC and I headed back out to the most southern point … Continue reading

SWCP #31b, 32, 33a Penzance to Predannack Wallas

When planning this walk, I began to ask myself whether it was worth the hassle. Could I justify dragging people out to the end of Cornwall to traipse along the coast path, come what may? I was constantly reviewing weather … Continue reading

SWCP #30 & 31a Porthcurno to Penzance

And then the weather changed. This was a walk that nearly wasn’t, because we only did one day of what should have been a two-day camping weekend, and even then, we nearly didn’t… I guess we’d had it to too … Continue reading

SWCP #27.5, 28, 29 Zennor Head to Porthcurno – Day 2

Oh what a weekend! Another camping delight that saw us get round the corner (Land’s End) and past what I believe to be the furthest point (as the crow flies) from Exeter. The usual suspects walked for the weekend: JC … Continue reading
