Looked like all the schools in Penzance took part in the climate change protests today.
Had a fun day today. Was going to Penzance and back on the train but for some reason the ticket machine didn’t print my return ticket. I told them in the ticket office in Penzance and they told me I would have to hope the ticket inspector on the train would let me off. I was a bit annoyed about that, so I decided to walk home. I looked on my phone and it was 15.5 miles. I had already done a few walking to the station and around Penzance, so I thought I might as well try and beat the 60,400 steps I did walking to Penzance last year.
I needed something to eat and bought this pasty. It's usually not safe to eat it in the street, as the seagulls go for them but the kids protesting had scared off the seagulls.
There were a few routes I could go but I wanted to walk the long beach on the north coast, so I made my own.
The roads were horrible at first but I found this great country road, with hardly any traffic.
I like this old sign, they couldn’t squeeze in Penzance.
This is a white cross by the road in a village called Whitecross. I can’t find any information about it.
This is the viaduct at Hayle. I would of been going over that on the train, if I had a return ticket :)
Made it to the north coast at Hayle sands but it was a long walk to the sea.
Walked over 3 miles along the beach at Gwithian sands.
Walked along the coast path, past Godrevy lighthouse.
Back on the main road, I looked back and saw the sun low in the sky.
This is Hell’s Mouth. Unfortunately, some people have jumped off here. There’s signs with numbers for people to call if their contemplating it. I can think of nicer ways to depart this life
Back on the last country lane before home and the sun was setting, casting these nice orange light streaks on the road.
It looked nice looking back too.
Saw the sunset, it was a great day but extremely windy and that made the walk much harder.
If I go for another personal best, I think I’ll try and find somewhere easier to walk and pick a less windy day.
