Week 6: Falmouth to Plymouth - Day 37

Par to Lansallos
11 miles
Word of the day: Buttercups

Back on the path and, on a promise of good weather, we are camping!

Walked from Par station towards Polkerris but were diverted inland by a large land slip - had to cross two barbed wire fences and negotiate a very slippery woodland slope to regain the path. Visited a lovely gallery in the old reading room and then walked up through woodland brimming with wild garlic before stopping to sketch buttercups near Little Gribbin Head. 

Having rounded Gribbin Head, with its enormous daymark, we stopped for a paddle at Polridmouth and then crossed the ferry at Fowey. We picked up supplies in Polruan and headed out onto the remote path towards Polperro, stopping to sketch near Lantic Bay. Spent the night at the NT campsite at Higher Town Farm in Lansallos, where we feasted on tinned mince and new potatoes washed down with a nice cup of tea supplied by a lovely family from Andover.
