Walking blog: The philosophy of walking

Two guides two guests

Both Martin from Adventureline and I had one guest each this week so what better than to get together and give our guests the benefit of two enthusiasts and guides. A case of 2 for the price of 1. It also gave us a chance to do some linear walks by leaving one car at the end of the walk and driving to the beginning. Whilst not our regular practice and in keeping with our green ethic it was a case of managing to do walks we hadn't done for years and working out how these walks could be done as a circular in the future.

We therefore managed to walk from Kenidjack valley, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution over Cape Cornwall and along the south west coast path to Sennen Cove. A marvellous linear day walk of about 7 miles. A chough, ravens, and a shiver of basking sharks at Sennen where a number of surfers paddled out to be amongst them and a small flotilla of boats slowly followed them. On another day we did a circular from Predannack to Pentreath beach via Mullion cliff and Kynance on the Lizard peninsula. As ever in the sunshine, the azure sea and bright lichen did not disappoint. Kayakers explored the coastline and the many caves whilst a couple of seals squirmed and contorted their way through underwater tunnels bottling every so often as to exchange advice and experiences with each other.

Butterflies and moths were out in abundance between Trevone and Padstow along the south west coast path and we hugged the coastline and had lunch on an outcrop that 999/1000 people miss. Our gain as the gannets wheeled around our craggy lunch stop. Dragonflies (demoiselles), burnet moths in their hundreds and swallows accompanied us during our week as if to say Hallelujah for the sun, here is summer however short it lasts.
