Well the weather in West Cornwall is misbehaving today! Unfortunately the summer sun has been hidden by the grey rainclouds; those clouds have been showering rain all day.
Now yesterday was a mix of sunshine & showers and the afternoon in West Cornwall was very pleasant. The sunset was spectacular!
Earlier in the week it was lovely weather so we took a walk along part of the South West Coast path.
Starting from Goldsithney we took to the fields and footpaths down to Perranuthnoe and had a quick coffee at The Cabin which is located just up from the beach. This great little place offers a range of tasty food & drinks and is open every day of the week during the summer. After that short break we took to the coast path and headed for Marazion. Part of the pathway goes through Boat Cove which is owned by the National Trust. The path doesn’t follow the coast all the way to Marazion and you have to continue the route on the footpath alongside the road leading into the village. Enroute, The Fire Engine pub is a welcome place to stop for a drink and/ or lunch if so desired. In our opinion, the view of St. Michaels Mount from the beer garden is one of the best. After a stroll aound Marazion, we decide to head inland and make our way back home via the quiet lanes towards Plain an Gwarry. We arrived home to a wonderful Cornish sunset.
What a difference in a couple of days; from sandals to sou’westers!
That’s the thing with the Great British weather – you never really know what will be in store from day to day; you’ve just got to be prepared for it all 🙂 Fingers crossed for clearer skies over the next few weeks.
