Although I’d opted to stop for lunch a few hundred metres south of Kynance Cove and away from the mass of sunbathers, I also knew that I wasn’t too far from Lizard Point; one of the highlights of this walk, as set out when I had initially planned it.
Lizard Point was just one thrown too far. I was hungry and, although my lunch box was ill-prepared, I was aware of the benefits of stopping sooner; unsure of exactly how much further I would otherwise have to walk.
In this first instalment of last Sunday’s walk, I take my first miles along the South West Coast Path through Cornwall, having already covered a portion of Dorset and most of the short stretch through Somerset.
This was officially my first full day in Cornwall, having spent the night inside my tent. With a lack of breakfast available on site due to a faulty hob, I was up and away sooner than I might otherwise have been.
