Here comes the sun

Finally, the sun made an appearance. We headed out for another coastal run. This time making a loop starting at Portscatho and heading to Zone Point, overlooking Falmouth to the west and St Mawes to the North. We covered just over ten miles and 1,000 feet. The coast was very pleasant. Lovely clear seas - almost made me want to go for a dip - almost but not quite on account of the deep blue waters being frickin freezin.

We took knock kneed Ern, Fish Boy Pedwar and the Super Dog - George had to make do with the back of the van on account of his advancing years. I think today's route was the best of the holiday so far. When we eventually arrived back at Portscatho I managed to hunt down another of those Cornish Pasties - and although not quite up to the standard of my first, it still went down a treat.

Then it was round to St Mawes for coffee on the pier and a walk along the front - passing the house I holidayed in as a child many, many years ago - in a galaxy far far away. Then home for tea - or in our case, a movie in Falmouth later on...
