JOGLE Day 62 03/07/17 Gwithian – Zennor 16 miles

It was drizzling when I set off and forecast was for fog around midday. I had already planned to miss out the dunes or towans between Gwithian and Hayle so made good time along a not busy road with plenty of footpaths. Hayle is not a particularly inspiring place and even the free wifi in Asda was not up to much so I filmed a quick video and continued towards St Ives. I passed the first marker I have seen since JOG with Lands End written on it. 17 miles by road – about 28 for me.

Walking past Carbis Bay I could see the fog across the water back to Gwithian but by the time I got to St Ives the sun was coming out and it was warming up nicely. St Ives was very busy but I stopped for a coffee and a bite to eat then headed onto the coastal path for the afternoon. Once more there was some good coastline but the walking was just difficult because of the terrain, not particularly steep but muddy, rocky and overgrown in places.After a relatively short day I got to Zennor in great time and a deserved beer at the Tinners Arms where Cath, Cazzy and Shirley had come to meet me.We drove back to Trevalgan camp site and then later back to Perranporth where we met up with Ally (remember him my fellow JOGLER?) for a good meal, some beer and loads of stories from the last 9 weeks. Then it was off to bed dreaming of the final day…
