Portscatho 4 Miles
Now, I’m not saying that our walks are based on the location of a good pub but I think we hit the jackpot today. We packed at the Plume of Feathers, Portscatho and then went for a four-mile circular heading up to Gerrans and then inland until we got to Towan, before we headed back along the coast path.
It’s the start of half-term and predictably we saw lots of family groups and holiday makers and if you wonder how we can tell, we just can. After a while you just spot the signs, often clean wellies and really happy smiles. And of course everyone say hello. But then that’s sort of an unwritten rule when out walking.
In fact that’s another tell tale sign that someone is on holiday s their startled glances when total strangers say hello.
We were accompanied by Otto and Whisky. Agatha and Harry had their walk earlier on as I wasn’t sure if Harry could make it. He is gradually getting weaker and slower on his pins. That said, I think he’d have been okay, it was pretty flat the whole way round, just one hill at the start.
As we walked along Towan beach lots of seals popped their heads out over the white-capped waves to watch us walk past. I was very tempted to go in and join them but maybe February is still a tad too cold? My layers of blubber aren’t quite as good as the seals’.
After an easy walk we headed into the pub and a fabulous menu. As well as a choice of four roast there were addition options as well. Whatever we picked it was fabulous. And honestly, I am absolutely stuffed! I don’t think we walked hard enough to deserve such a feast but I shall learn to leave with my poor effort! 😀
