My walking activities have been curtailed in recent years by the arrival of a small child, pain from a Morton's Neuroma that has been successfully managed with a custom made shoe insert and then that darned knee with a bit of bother from my ankle thrown in. But finally it seems that I'm on the mend so Salty Dog and I decided to head down to Cornwall this weekend and see where the path by the sea took us. We were blessed with some beautiful weather. Here's the view on day three on our jaunt from Mevagissey to Gorran Haven. We tackled it in both directions and this together with a jaunt inland to find a hostelry at Gorran this meant that we covered a very acceptable distance indeed for two out of condition laydeees.
If you fancy following in our footsteps and taking in a bit of the longest trail in Britain, a good start is visiting the website of the South West Coast Path Association and a good public transport timetables for the area you're in. Don't do as we did and wait at the wrong top though. We watched as our bus sailed past. It's lucky that we'd made friends in the beer garden who took pity and gave us a lift back to the campsite!
