what a glorious walk – start from the cliff top of st agnes and walk over the coastal path to chapel porth – about a good hour and quarter walk – its got to be one of the most stunning views i have ever seen. you leave the dramatic landscape of st agnes, through fields of blazing heather, the magnificent ruins of an old tin mine and down to the hidden cove of chapel porth. typically cornwall weather, we started the walk with sundresses and suncream, donning cardigans half way through with the brisk wind blowing in our ears, and ended up soaked through the driving rain – fortunately it just started as we arrived at the welcoming cafe at chapel porth beach. we warmed up with hot croque monsieurs and finished off with the infamous hedgehog icecream (cornish vanilla, dipped in clotted cream, then rolled in chopped hazelnuts). not correctly attired, in our fashionable converse pumps and sundresses, i decided to call a local taxi to take us home – not wanting to brave the wind and rain for the walk home. only pip, our hardy lass decided to do the walk back home again, whilst all 5 of us jumped eagerly into the awaiting taxi to journey home. strangely an invigorated pip arrived only half an hour after us!!! we felt a bit guilty, but in the end i think she gained!
