Week 6: Falmouth to Plymouth - Day 39

Looe to Tregonhawke
11 miles
Word of the day: Diversions

Started the day with a lengthy stretch away from the sea -  initially around the private houses of Millendreath and then along the lanes to Seaton avoiding multiple land slips on Bodigga Cliff and above Keveral Beach. 
Hot again so we stopped in Seaton for a well deserved ice cream and a few quick sketches of characters on the beach. Walked along the sea wall and beach to Downderry before hiding from the sun for an hour under a palm tree in the memorial garden. 

After Portwrinkle the permissive path past Tregangtle Fort was closed due to firing so we had a dreary walk alongside a busy road for 2 miles. Many people enjoying the hottest day on the path so far. Got a bit overheated and ended up with prickly heat on the tops of my feet. Spent the night in a gun emplacement at Whitesand Bay Battery.
