These 6.5 miles seemed much more strenuous than yesterday's 11.5. One headland alone has 90 steps down and 164 up. Yes, we counted. Then came three more headlands. Our original plan was to go to Mevagissey—just two miles away—but we bail at Pentewan because (1.) we are tired, and (2.) we need to make a 2:30 reservation for our only Sunday Roast. This meal is a priority; to hell with our walking plans.
Because of a cliff fall, the path is diverted through town.Lunch by the harbor.
You constantly have to be aware of unstable cliffs. Love the guy on the right taking a selfie right on the end of cliff crack.
We lose track of how many ups and downs this section contains but we feel every one of them.
When we stop for lunch at the bottom of a hill we break our rule of waiting to eat until at the top. But this is after 90 steps down and we can see it's a shockingly long way back up the other side. So we take a break to get the strength.
Lots and lots of ups and downs.
Lots and lots of bluebells!
We reach Pentewan and decide to call it quits. This pump used to serve the village! We stop for cider at The Ship Inn while we wait for a taxi. (Buses don't run here on Sundays.)
