An Escape to Porthtowan

Porthtowan "Oh my god! Sun! Everybody get outside while you can!" said every single person in Cornwall last weekend.

As I've mentioned before, I love living in Cornwall. However, it does rain quite a lot. It's England, so it's bound to! Poldark makes Cornwall look like it's 30°C all year long, but trust me people, it's not. So when it is sunny, everyone makes a run for it. Plans are changed, essential admin gets pushed aside and we head to the beach. And why wouldn't we? It's so beautiful!

Tom and I had never been to Porthtowan before, so we grabbed our trusty Cornwall Walking Guide and headed out. We started in the village and made our way up towards the coastal path. As we began walking up to the cliffs, we were met by some rather lovely Shetland ponies. The views along the coastal path are beautiful, and you can see the whole coastline so clearly. We thought about walking all the way to Godrevy, but thought we should avoid getting lost and stick to our guide book's advice.

After about an hour on the coastal path, we turned down towards Tehidy Woods. I can't say that Tehidy was as inspiring to me as the coastline, but I definitely still enjoyed it. We agreed though that next time we go, we will stick to the coast path and  make our way to Godrevy!
