By bus from St Agnes to Perranporth (without my bus pass as I have still to get that - once I move beyond my unreasonable streak of pointless bloody-mindedness - but that's another story) and then back along the coastal footpath due west. Navigation is easy peasy as all that is required is to keep the sea on the right and avoid the cliff edge. Blue sea, blue sky, sea birds, cliffs and a modicum of industrial archaeology all contributed to a very pleasant few hours. By the time we had finished, we'd done somewhere around 5 - 6 miles, but definitely not at any record breaking pace. There was no need for a route march and we took time to enjoy our surroundings.

|An iconic sight around these parts - a Cornish engine house. This one is called Wheal Friendly and is obviously being well looked after. At one stage we counted 9 or 10 like this in our view.|
