Early day three

Ok I'll admit it cornwall is tough walking , very glad to have finished the coastal path, it was of course very beautiful but the first day following the coast from landsend to marazion was harder than most of the mountain walking I've done! Tho having said that the cornish ice cream kept me going ;).

The weather for the first two days has been amazing and today looks to be another day of sunshine and clear blue skyscapes !

Yesterday went a bit wrong at both ends of the day,packing my tent away in the morning I managed to snap the main pole! Glad I bought a repair kit with me ! And at the end of the day the pub I was aiming to have dinner at closes on a Monday night! And just to finish off the day my chosen camp site doesnt open till may, kindly they let me stay ! Today should be better.

Day 2 (added after completion)
we headed out through Marazion with a quick walk along the beach to see St Michaels Mount,
then along the coastal path once more, a quick snack at Perran sands (very kind as they weren't actually open!) walking round Prussia cove we met lots of french girls (ooo la la!) the reason became clear when we passed The Enys where a musical (college?) was based, very pleasing to walk past and nice to see some of there handy craft on the beach below!
Passing Pra sands the surf dudes did there best too....
a walk of extremes!
A bit of field walking to Porthleven and its harbour
and we head inland not to see the sea properly again untill Queensferry!.
More of those tiny Cornish lanes bypassing Helston and we get to Porkellis for our rather unusual campsite!

Location : Wendron, Cornwall,


  1. Is that all your walked? It's nice that the camp site let you be fitted in, enjoy your walking today... from a Jealous Guy

  2. Oh bro! It's sounding like a comedy of errors - all except the wonderful weather! You sound happy anyway, which is the main thing - hope Alfie is grand too. Keep strong and smiling :) Love from me, the mob and the dogs x x

  3. Hi Andy, glad I checked your blog - I was wondering when you started.

    Well done - coastal paths can be tough going...we're planning to some of that this year.

    Don't worry - things can only get better. One thing I learned on my jogle is how wonderful strangers can be when you least expect it.

    Well done both of you...give Alfie a scruff from me!


  4. "I managed to snap the main pole! Glad I bought a repair kit with me"

    You're a sparky... a repair kit to you would be a reel of gaffer tape and a Philips... s'pose you could tape the screwdriver across the break in the pole.

    see you soon, you're nearly getting to the civilised end of the South West,
