Week 6: Falmouth to Plymouth - Day 40

Tregonhawke to Plymouth
9 miles
Word of the day: Sails


After the heat of yesterday we started a bit earlier and had plenty of breaks to air my feet. Stopped to sketch Rame Head from Queener Point. I was hampered slightly by some very inquisitive, but friendly, ponies.


Then went up to St Michael's Chapel on top of Rame Head and spent an hour in the sunshine watching the ships and boats go by. 

Stopped for our last Cornish Pasty in Cawsand and then walked on into Mount Edgecombe Country Park - a place we last visited in the early eighties when we were both students in Plymouth. 

Said farewell to Cornwall - after four and a half very enjoyable weeks. Caught a very crowded Cremyll Ferry before walking through Plymouth City Centre feeling like aliens - two hot, sweaty and rather dishevelled rambling hikers amongst the Saturday shoppers. Back to reality!
