SWCP - Day 18 - Perranporth to Portreath

sunny 18 °C

Steps / Distance: 39,842 27.22 km
Rating: moderate then strenuous

The rating was certainly true that the last bit was strenuous. Here are pics of the down (can you see that it's the top of a step that looks like a drop off the cliff? That was the down; the second pic is the equally steep steps up the other side. Not sure if you can make out the steps, but trust me, steep and a lot of them.

The most interesting thing about today's walk was the remnants of the mining operations. I think mostly tin, but there may have been coal or other mines.

Of course, there were also beautiful views, including of Chapel Porth (can you see it written on the hill?)

Tonight, I'm staying in a lovely apartment with a sunny deck (view from deck), perfect for drying laundry while I'm in the pub having a Dartmouth Jail Ale.
