south west coast path
monday 24th - wednesday 26th september 2018
We’re staying in a cottage situated between Helston and Porthleven this week. I’m having a week off from walking so instead I’ll be beachcombing the various beaches around here and I’m spoilt for choice. I could visit :-
gunwalloe fishing cove
and maybe the Falmouth beaches at :-
Not sure how many I’ll get to so we’ll have to see.
We travelled down to Cornwall in filthy weather on Saturday. The weather forecast for Sunday was also filthy but it turned out to be quite a nice day and the weather this morning is glorious.
Porthcurno is one of my favourite beaches on the south west coast path. There’s a large film crew camped in Porthcurno as we arrive - presumably filming Poldark - but they don’t appear to be doing very much so the beach is very quiet.
The last time I passed through Praa Sands the sand had been washed away by winter storms but normal order has been restored.
It is another beautiful morning and there are already quite a few people enjoying the beach at Poldhu.
It is a short walk around from Poldhu to Church Cove.
It is another beautiful morning and there’s not a cloud in the sky. I start the day at Newlyn before making my way across the beach at Penzance and then I amble across Marazion Beach.
