Walking at Golant, Cornwall
I like walking, as you may have gathered from my posts - and not necessarily following a pre-planned route. It's sometimes just nice to walk.
The photos today are of such a walk starting at Golant, Cornwall. We parked the car alongside the river. The tide was out as you can see from the photo below.
We passed the Fishermans Arms pub and headed for a footpath.
The yellow arrow on the sign indicated that this is a Public Footpath and the black cross shows that this is part of the Saints' Way.
We walked through the woods ...
... with glimpses of the River Fowey.
The path wiggled about but was clear of any hazards - not that we expected any!
The sunshine made it's way through the tree tops casting bright patches on the grass.
The trees gradually disappeared and the fields opened up before us.
Wild flowers tinted the fields.
And then ... well, I think this is my favourite view - photo below.
A few cattle joined us as we walked until ...
... we reached St.Sampson's Church.
There was a lovely view from the churchyard. Oh yes, and the church has it's own Holy Well.
It was then downhill to the river and back to our car.
All in all very pleasant and uplifting!
