So today we just had a moderate 4-5 mile walk to complete, nothing threatening!! Treated ourselves to a lie in in our luxurious pad! Set off with a skip in our pace (especially for Alice ❤️) and hiked through footpaths, roads, dunes, muddy woods, beaches – all different terrains that make up the Coastal Path. Some stunning gardens in St Erth… came across this unusual specimen …. name that plant!!
Left Hayle behind us as we headed off to St Ives.
Walked as far as Porthminster Beach and settled there for the rest of the afternoon. Tried to tuck into lunch on the beach but the seagulls won!! I had a fabulous swim, quite chilly but as they say ‘beautiful once you’re under.’ I loved looking over at the town of St Ives as I floated on the waves. Steve chose not to participate in the swimming – relaxed on the sand instead, ruling the seagulls!!
Enjoyed this most relaxing of days – got the train back from St. Ives to Hayle – went to 6.30pm mass and had a surprise meet up with Father Philip Dyson who used to be the parish priest in Weymouth. Then back for another cosy night in at our nest in St.Erth.
