Faith in Polperro
« Fowey | East Looe »

Back on the coast after a couple of months' break. Today's our second wedding anniversary and despite the slight drizzle it's fantastic to be marking it in this way.


Once out of Polruan there are no signs of civilisation on the coastpath until Polperro. The path winds back and forth, up and down through the gorse and bracken with occasional views across to Lansallos church which appeared to be playing hide-and-seek behind the rolling hills.

Polperro came quickly but we didn't linger to explore, opting instead to see if the bus which we were already five minutes late for was itself running late. This was a mistake. Because of its narrow, winding streets most traffic is excluded from the village including the local bus which stops a kilometre away in Crumplehorn. Next time we'll know.
