 I just wanted to thank you again for a really lovely week's walking. We could not have been more blessed with the weather, and seeing those glorious beaches and panoramic views without the summer crowds was exceptional.

Days Out and Walking Holidays in Cornwall

Whose "sori" now?

sori on fern feb 2010
(Say with a Clouseau accent until you laugh) “Sorry, I’m on the fern”. Clutch one of the 53 species in Britain to your ear as you walk down a damp, enclosed sunken lane or a path in a wood. Yup, pteridophytes can be fun, even if it has taken them 400 million years to be included in a one-liner. Oh and please don’t pick a fresh one, that’s the countryside code.

Low tide scrambling. The Cornwall coast is a new land.

The Camel estuary on a walking vacation in Cornwall

Very low tides mean scrambling! Very low tides mean you can see the Cornish landscape from an unusual angle where the sea floor is revealed and a different vista can be enjoyed. Caves can be explored, geology viewed close up that might not be exposed further up on the Coast Path. New beaches are yours to run about on whilst islands, so often out of reach can be accessed and conquered.

Low tide coastline becomes a new playground for walkers.

The shape of topiary in the Mendips

The shape of topiary on a walk in the Mendips with walkitcornwall

This topiary was seen on a walk in the Mendips when I was up there recently with the family. Now call me old fashioned but am I missing something here or are these topiary shapes, well you know, rather obvious?

Colours and moods whilst walking in Cornwall

heathers on a guided walking vacation in Cornwall

The moods and colours of the landscape in Cornwall vary from day to day and I feel are more intensive in this county than elsewhere. It has a lot to do with the light and the fact that Cornwall is a stick of rock out in the Atlantic surrounded by the vast expanse of sea, which affects the light particles. The schools of painters that have made Cornwall their home understood this.

What have doctors, dentists, car breakdown services and Cornwall Air Ambulance Service got in common? You see them once, give them money and hopefully never see them again.

What the devil's going on? Is it a frying pan or what?

butter hole padstow walking vacation in cornwall walkitcornwall

 

We contemplated the name, the Devil’s Frying Pan near Cadgwith on the Lizard peninsula, because I mistakenly called it the Devil’s Punchbowl, after the so named place in Surrey. Well obviously it was something kitchen related. So where in the UK is the Devils Fondue Set, I wonder?

Economic value of nature: National Ecosystem Assessment

valuing nature photo walkitcornwall walks in cornwall

The arrogance of mankind.

Two articles caught my eye this morning. The first was that Christiana Figueres of the UN has said that we should limit climate change to 1.5 degrees C. This has “shocked” certain developed nations who want it to remain at 2 degrees as it was agreed last year unilaterally at Cancun, Mexico. The second story involves putting a value on nature under the National Ecosystem Assessment (NEA).

Colours, laughter and 13 is not an unlucky number.

porthbeor beach walking break in cornwall walkitcornwall

This week was full of international stories, lots of laughter and practical jokes, slating and all round tomfoolery by all. Turning strangers into great friends takes some doing in such a short space of time. But this is Cornwall and the shared experience; beautiful views and journeys make it so easy. Walkers tend to be giving, open, like-minded creatures. So why am I constantly surprised that all went well?

The solitude of walking. Walking as a small group.

kings cove to hoe point prussia cove walkitcornwall walking holidays in cornwall

You can fall in love with the Cornwall landscape over and over again. As much as group dynamics and interaction might be important for some the solitude of being immersed in this unique county alone brings its own rich rewards. Whether we go walking with 14 people like a few weeks ago (see the blog above) or with one person like it was this week the effect on ones wellbeing is immeasurable.

Walking holiday in Cornwall A week in June 2011

camel-estuary walking holiday in Cornwall wanderurlaub in Cornwall

A multicultural meeting of minds (and legs). And one hen pecked guide (yeah right).

The week promised and delivered good weather which lifted spirits, enhanced colours and brought the best out of people. The drab moods of Monday gave way to enthusiasm and joy at the aquamarines and mauves of the Camel estuary. I’ve never seen such blues, greens and colours which I have no names for but they assaulted my retinas with such severity. Blessed, we were.

Seal watching on the Carracks St Ives walkitcornwall

It’s a back-to-back walking week, in fact the third week in a row and we are still awaiting a heavy downpour. Oh, I spoke too soon. Monday morning it fell down as we headed to Portreath. But ten minutes of delaying tactics in the van, chatting about the symbols of Cornwall and the reintroduction of the Chough and the clouds cleared, the rain stopped and off we went on our first of five days of walking. Not a drop of rain for the next four and a half days with the wind veering from the south to the north west by Friday.
