Loop the Lizard

Posted by robjwall on March 11, 2010

On the last few weekends we have been walking.  It continues to be sunny and cold. I am close to something we dubbed ‘loop the Lizard’.  A walk from Merthen to Merthen around the Lizard Peninsula, crossing the Helford on the ferry, and following the coastal path around the cliff-edges.  I guess Kira and I have done about half of it already.  Even Alf has done some.

Last weekend we did a two day stint staying overnight at the Paris Hotel in Coverack, which had surprisingly good food and views, and predictably small rooms.  My favourite stretch so far was from the Helford river at Gilllan to Porthellow.  Quiet riverside cottages, boats, rolling grass, and ‘Shakespearean’ rather than Cornish feeling countryside.

If you have Google earth you can see the route here  Loop the Lizard

BREAKING NEWS.  We had a rush of blood this week and have just booked to go skiing at Paradiski in the Alps for all of next week. (Gulp!)
