S.W.Coast Path - Penzance to Porthleven

Friday 8th July 2016

Forgot to mention the yummy almond and raspberry tart last night.

Twelve miles today of pleasant walking to start with, then progressively more ups and downs. Being largely alongside the sea with the magnificent Cornish scenery is what I came for, but I have to say I was moving very slowly up the last few hills.

I'm booked into an Air B and B - see the website. The owner is away and has left the key with her neighbour and I have the full run of the house and a fully prepared breakfast in the fridge. The only trouble with Air is that you have to go through the website control and wait for confirmation of your booking which is no good for the spontaneous requirements of a day to day backpacker - I had booked this one from home.

I have now eaten well inThe Harbour Inn having chosen a veggie option: Cornish Homity Pie with accompanying vegetables cooked with care.

I've booked ahead for tomorrow into a B and B at Lizard Point - 14 miles. It's all easier these days with so many places having wifi as well as BT hotspots.
