Summer is now well and truly over and done with, but what could be better than an atmospheric Cornish Autumn holiday in the seaside village of #Porthleven, south west #Cornwall....
The sun is shining so this morning I decided to walk from Porthleven to Penrose, the National Trust estate nearby. I walked past the #harbour and the local cafes and shops thinking how thoughtful #Porthleven people are, leaving fresh bowls of water out for dogs. Porthleven is so dog-friendly, I do love living here. Keeping the harbour on my right, I headed towards the clocktower and was delighted to see the local guys out surfing some really sharp waves. This is definitely not for the faint-hearted because they surf over the reef.
Porthleven to Penrose
Turning left along the sea front, I continued on my walk from Porthleven to Penrose. There wasn’t much wind, so the fresh water of #Loe Pool was lovely and calm showing good reflections. Soon, bluebells will carpet the woods making it look so beautiful and colourful. I love the spring and today it is lovely and warm and sunny, which is very welcome after such a long wet winter.
Time for some Refreshments
A little further on, a local firm, Nauti But Ice, have opened up a cafe by the old stables just to the left of the main path through the woods, and it’s a lovely place to sit and relax and admire the view. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.486939804704445.1073741826.136121226452973&type=3
All in all, a wonderful walk. The walk from Porthleven to Penrose is definitely one of my favourites.
