Left Oakridge Farm at 10 a.m. Thanks for your hospitality and donation Steve. Beautiful morning, sunny and hardly any wind. Walked along a busy road for a mile and a half, and turned onto a much quieter road to Fiddlers Green. A cyclist stopped and asked the question “Where are you going?”. Our reply was “Right to the top” Alan Chapman from Truro introduced himself and we had a pleasant few minutes talking about the community of walkers and cyclists. He wished us well as we continued on to St Newlyn East. Went into the post office to buy postcards and stamps. Had pleasant chat with Aubrey and Lesley. Aubrey offered us a cup of tea and we said “Yes please”. Spent a pleasant time drinking tea and eating biscuits while a steady stream of customers came and went – one gave us a donation – thanks Val.
Spent some time looking around the church of St Newlyn.
Beautiful carved wooden pew ends and again a few quiet moments to reflect. Called into the local butchers “L. George” recommend by Steve (thanks again Steve) for two Cornish pasties – Onwards and upwards for a long slow climb along a moderately busy road to Mitchell – saw some new born lambs on the way.
Then along a very much quieter country lane to St Enoder where we had arranged to stay for the night. Thank you Harold and Denise for a delicious supper, good company and a warm comfy bed for the night
