Allday's Fields

alldays.png Distance: 2.78 miles
Ascent: 132 metres
Duration: 2 days 7 hours 35 minutes

St Austell Bay

And so to Fowey again
for a few days break
in our favourite hotel
for the fifth consecutive Autumn.

We started with the traditional walk
through the town to the headland of St Catherine's.
But this time a little more: beyond to Allday's Fields.
Here we stopped in the dying light of the day.

At this point we sat and looked.
To the east Polruan with the coastpath beyond to Polperro: we've walked that.
To the west the headlands we have conquered: Gribbin, Dodman and Lizard.

Only Nare Head remains undefeated.
One day's walk. Tomorrow maybe?

Tonight we'll wrap in a warm duvet and
fall asleep to the sound of the sea and the wonky bells.
Tomorrow can wait.
