JOGLE Day 61 02/07/17 Perranporth – Gwithian 17 miles

The eerie fog of last night had gone by this morning and the blue skies looked perfect as I set off on Day 61, still not really believing I have walked almost 1200 miles in the last 2 months. I took lanes through St Agnes (quite hilly!) to shortcut the coastal path as far as Porthtowan where I got back up onto the cliffs with some fantastic views of the coastline ahead and behind.There were a couple of short steep ups and downs before I reached Portreath, but I have noticed now how the heather is starting to flower and change the colour of the landscape.More views of rugged coastline followed as I covered the next few miles towards Godrevy point, passing Hells Mouth and a small colony of seals along the way (can you spot them?)Feeling good and way ahead of time I decided not to miss out Godrevy point and took the longer route around the headland to get a closer look at the lighthouse.After a brief rest and some reflection on this trek (difficult to take it all in in one go) the last mile or so into Gwithian was easy and I arrived at the camp site before Cath and Betty. A quick check on social media revealed she had been down to Perranporth beach. When she arrived in Gwithian she brought with her the surprise of Cazzy and Shirley who have driven down from Staffordshire to join us for the last couple of days. If anyone is asking – Shirley is not walking with me and she has not brought rain with her – at least not yet!!!

  1. Have a great day today! You have done amazingly well and are a great example to me and my crew. Maybe when we get to JOG we will turn around and walk the other way….
