We've come to Penzance to finish up a gap from Zennor Head to Sennon Cove. Today we walk the part that has no bus service on Sunday--Zennor to Pendeen Watch. We know big rain is coming and we know it's rated "strenuous" in the books, so we expect some difficulties. Hover over photo to see caption.
And then we go back up. But when the trail starts heading back down and around, we decide we're finished. Enough. It's raining too hard to get photos but picture this: crossing a huge cow pasture skirting between cows and animal-sized cow patties; climbing a fence into a second field; then a third and fourth. The last one has a bull and I'm terrified. Finally we find a road with not a sign of life anywhere. Eventually we flag down a car and get a looong lift to the bus stop, where we've missed the bus by 5 minutes. Luckily a kind man takes pity and offers us a ride to Penzance. We arrive at our AirBnB sopping wet from head to toe, and undress in the shed. The coast path has beaten us.
