My friend Mrs F, goes away every May Bank holiday for a walking break with a group of her friends, a couple of weeks ago she called me to invite me along. A couple of the ladies could not make it and this year they were walking North Cornwall, so not far for me to travel. I did a typical me thing, I got excited, cleared it with hubby, said yes please and then discovered it would be hard walking just a week after the marathon! Thank goodness the recovery was good!
Here is a map of Cornwall for you, we stayed in Port Isaac, which is well known here as the setting for Doc Martin. (on the North Coast)
Here is Port Isaac, just as it appears in the TV programme
We walked from Port Isaac to Tintagel. The weather was like this
windy, cold and at times wet. Although later on in the day the clouds cleared a bit. The Cornish coast is rugged, hilly and so beautiful
Port Isaac to Polzeath
The weather was kinder, the terrain not so tough. A fantastic day.
A lovely two days walking. Thank you body for being up for this. Back to running soon!
First, I LOVE that the map legend says “area of outstanding natural beauty.” Clearly American map makers need to take a lesson from English ones. Second, is that a walking map? As in, the land belongs to the people and isn’t private property so you’re not trespassing? Sigh. I love that thought.
Hi Paige, sadly this is not a walking map, just one I stole from the internet that clearly
showed the places we walked from and to. There is however a path right round that coast (are of outstanding beauty) some of this land will belong to farmers but the public have the use of the path.
Wow, just stunning. Good on the marathoner’s legs to do all that walking, sounds like a great active recovery for body and mind.
Such beautiful coastline! But the hills …..
Mmmm some of them quite mountainous!
You know it’s bad when ‘they’ have built in stairs…..
Beautiful walk, looks awesome. Thanks for the photos.
Wonderful pictures. I’ve never visited Cornwall but it’s somewhere I know I definitely want to visit one day!
