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.
After less than an hour we got talked into popping into a fund-raising tea and cake session at St. Uny’s Church, Lelant – delicious Victoria sponge!!
And the sun shined all day … I know, this is unheard of in Cornwall. Passed stunning beaches – some remote and deserted, others packed with families making the most of the weather.
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.

I think it’s a yucca plant but it looks odd because it’s in flower. Do you mean Alice is walking with you? All looks lovely. 5 miles must be a bit like a walk to the corner shop by now! Bx
No , Alice not with us – but she still has a skip when she walks so we skip occasionally to think of her!! Yes, 5 miles was a breeze x
Father Dyson Deirdre not Doyle!! xx
