A brisk downhill stroll through the woods below Carnethic to Readymoney beach then up the other side of the cove to the cliffs and a chance encounter with these fine ladies. Moo.
A turn of the head and we're looking out to sea and back across the mouth of the Fowey estuary. On this Bank Holiday there were myriad boats, possibly the Polruan Regatta (that's Polruan nestling on the far cliffs)....it's just that I somehow managed to miss all the boats when I took the photo - look at that lovely clear sky though!
An hour (ish) later and we've made it: Polkerris Beach. A quick dip in the sheltered bay for those of us who don't suffer anaphylactic shocks at the mere sight of northern hemisphere water, then into Sam's on the Beach (always book first - by phone or online, simples) for delicious moules....Joy!
Here's a little tip: make the most of every minute of this glorious place and, after your long lazy lunch, don't resign yourself to the A30 and M5 just yet, get on the beach and jolly well stay there. We all have that feeling that on our last day we should pack up and go. Oh sure, in the days before we say we'll spend the whole day in Cornwall, but you know how it is once you're packed and the car's stacked. Fight those urges people, because what's more, you'll beat the traffic.
All this - beautiful views, delicious food, sandy beaches, watersports, exercise (on them cliffs), hidden coves, deep breaths and fuel for the soul....right on the doorstep of our wonderful Cornish apartment at Carnethic House in Fowey, the perfect escape all year round.
