Those of you who have looked at the route will know Helston is not on it. Let’s begin at the beginning. My room-mates eventually rolled in just after midnight and let the door bang every time they went to the toilets. Amazingly I slept well and left them sleeping it off at 7.15.
The weather was fine with a cooling breeze. Kynance cove soon came and went as did Mullion Cove where I stopped for tea. Soon after Poldu I could see Porthleven in the distance and thought I would arrive around 1.30-2.00pm. Little did I know that there had been a cliff fall and I had to walk along the Loe on an hour’s detour.
So why am I in Helston? Simply somewhere before Mullion I had dropped the map. Tomorrow I cross to the north coast on country footpaths and I need a map. Porthleven could not supply one, so I have caught the bus here and am now having to wait an hour before the bus back. I will have no criticism made in future of WH Smith’s who saved the day. Apart from all this aggravation, the day has gone well, and I know how to find tonight’s campsite and there is a pub next door. Speaking of which I just have time for a beer before returning to Porthleven.
