Rinsey to Porthleven

A well-walked walk.... memorably met a man with his son who claimed to have just seen a Cornish chough and an admirably flushed unfit woman, walking from Porthleven to Praa Sands to reward herself with an icecream, then back again.
The drink at the end of these walks - this time at the Ship Inn, Porthleven, is always a reward.
And at home, the harvest has started. The combine is a seriously industrial sight after four hours of cliffs and sea. They're still working hard even though it's starting to get dark.
Looking back towards Praa Sands

Perfect picnic spot

I would not trust my lfe to this rope
