Walk 12 & 13

Walk 12

Mevagissey to Portloe
12 miles

Set myself a bit of a challenge on this walk as I had to do my post round on the same day as this walk! talk about a glutton for punishment.... woke up at 5.30am, breakfast then a 25mile journey to work, preped my round and delivered by 9.10am, home at 9.45am, train to St Austell @ 11.16, bus to Mevagissey arrived 2pm walked 12.3miles arrived at B&B at 5.58pm ( my aim was to arrive at 6pm!) Weather was fine and calm, not too much mud this time but did see a shetland pony on the way ( he must have been a bit lost :) Picture is of Caerhays Castle Nr Portloe...picture is a bit dark due to the fact the light was fading a little by the time I took it!

Walk 13
Portloe to Falmouth
14 miles

After a wonderful nights sleep at the B&B in Portloe I was up and ready for the walk ahead, today was a little strange as I had to order a taxi for 2-2.30pm in advance to pick me up at Place! (see picture of the yellow house)

The walk itself was pretty easy with the added bonus of walking (at last!) across not one but three beaches which was a nice change from mud! (picture is of Pendover Beach) Weather was fine and calm again though a little chilly due to frost in the morning.

I arrived at Place just before 2pm and had to wait for my taxi to St Mawes, reason for the taxi is that the ferry does not start running until Easter :( Once at St Mawes it was then a wait for a ferry to Falmouth then a short walk to the train station and home talk about untilising public transport!!!!
