Back in Cornwall

It was great to spend a few days near Falmouth, even though the weather was not great.
We had planned to walk some South West Coast path and drove to the North Coast to walk from Port Isaac to Rock. But it was so grey and dismalĀ  we drove there instead.
We visited Trelissick and went inside the house for the first time.

We enjoyed a unexpectedly sunny sail around the creek to St Mawes and Falmouth.

We enjoyed a walk around the Lost (but definitely found) Gardens of Heligan.

We then drove on to Mevagissey and wandered around the harbour.

Walking the MacMillan Way

In early September we walked from Maidwell to Great Brington. The weather was a bit grey so we only walked 11 miles and were glad to reach The Fox and Hounds for a well deserved beer.

Entrance to Holdenby House

Later in October we continued our walk to Flore (just five miles). We drove back to the Fox and Hounds for an enjoyable lunch.

The building of a train line caused a detour as our path was blocked by a giant hole.
