Since tomorrows walk to Newlyn had been postponed until the end of October when there's every chance that the weather will be even worse, Wooster and I decided to walk to Newlyn today, since we have already been sponsored to do it ! If it does go ahead in October we will happily do it again - we need the exercise !
Here we are at the start at 10am , under the signpost in Perranuthnoe
Lovely beach this morning
Scillonian III on her way out passing the old Penlee Quarry
A panorama of the walk round Mount's Bay
Close-up of The Castle - no flag flying as they are closed on Saturdays
We usually walk down this hill - it was quite steep and long to walk up
At the top, Jim and Tilly went right - and back to Perranuthnoe
Whilst Wooster and I went onwards to the Churchyard and the road down into Marazion
We were passed by Karen from Trenow Dairy who was on her milk delivery round
Looking over a wall as we walk down into Marazion
The super view from alongside the Godolphin Hotel
Crossing the Red River - looking rather brown after all the rain last night
Grey Heron on Marazion Marsh
From the other side of the road
Past Marazion Junction and onwards
Think that this is the bit that needed a lot of repair work after the Winter storms
Wooster gazing down onto the beach - and hoping !
Really rather cool and breezy as these huge dark clouds passed by
Still hoping !
Passing Sainsburys - with some blue sky showing along the bottom
But still looking very grey to the East
