Passing through the ages to negotiate the Fal

... the splendidly named hamlet, Come-To-Good. The name arising from the presence of a Quaker Meeting house which has been here for 300 years and nowadays sports a magnificent new thatched roof. The day got even better as we found ourselves walking into a National Trust area of magnificent beauty. This was Round Wood. By now we were in a somewhat remote parcel of land surrounded on two sides by the Fal Estuary. Walking through here we spent ...

All the magic of Kennall Vale nature reserve

After walking 23kms yesterday, today is a more modest 18kms. We've walked into St. Michaels Mount along the Coastal Path and at high tide, had to take the little ferry there and back. The Castle is lovely and we find our first representation of the St. George or St. Michael battle against dragons in a wonderful statue. Since walking through many wonderful landscapes maintained by the National Trust in previous years, we have become members and are able to gain ...

Watergate Bay
We set out for Watergate bay one day from Perranporth, it was just past Newquay and looking at the map, it seemed a vast expanse of sand to lose ourselves in. Driving through Newquay was as expected, flashing lights & grubby shops- where Magaluf meets Morecombe.
