South West Coast Path Walking From Trenarren, Cornwall
The photos are from last year. We parked the car near Trenarren with the aim of walking for a while along the South West Coast Path - photo as above.
But first we had to walk along a lane and through the mixture of cottages of the small hamlet of Trenarren. There was a Post Box - some people still use them! When you look back how exciting it was to receive handwritten letters - much more intimate than the emails of today.
The cottages were alive with pretty flowers
And some people hope to receive post.
The lane turned into the path, as below - and at the end of the path there was a steep slope leading to the Coastal Path - as per the first photo.
I never get tired of the Coast Path and find it strange that so few people seem to actually walk the path.
This is Boscastle, Cornwall. The photo above shows the hazardous entrance to the harbour. 100 years ago this was the only place a harbour...
