Day 002 : Zennor – Hayle

A new day brought a lovely crisp, bright, spring like day. I was fully recovered from yesterday for a walk from the rugged cliffs of miners into the playground of artists.


The first part of this walk up to Pen Enys Point was very similiar to yesterdays walk. It is said that sculptress, Barbara Hepworth got a lot of her inspiration from this coastline.

002_094_TheCarricksAlong the path from Pen Enys Point, I met two couples and started to chat about my walk and charities I’m supporting. The chat became quite long and they were very supportive. It seems everyone either has someone or knows someone who suffers from dementia or some form of disability. I eventually proceed and its’ not long before I am in St Ives.
