Day 24 of the Longest Walk

Zennor to St Just
Zennor to St Just

Day 9 of this weeks adventures and day 24 in total of The Longest Walk.

I have to say that The Tinners Arms breakfast was the best of this holiday, and in fact other than the very first B&B Sea View Bed and Breakfast, the room and the food and the atmosphere at the Tinners have all been great. Highly recommended.
We set off at 9 hoping for a cloudy only day, the forecast wasn’t good, and as it happened the rain and wind was there from the start, and we had a wet days walking. So not much in the way of pictures were taken so I posted a few that I grabbed from the GoPro, so please excuse the angle of some of the shots.

We met many more walkers than I thought we would due to the conditions, and the vast majority of them were oversea’s visitors.

We enjoyed the majority of the walk but as we got closer to the end we were quite wet and feeling like it would be nice just to be transported to our room, hopefully with a bath, unfortunately neither happened.

We caught up with a German couple that we met at the start, however they went ahead as we still took a detour around Gurnards Head, they were also staying at the same place as us, so I directed them using the Ordnance Survey App they Ive been using on my phone, it has been perfect and didn’t let me down now.

We arrived at the hotel to find no bags in our room, normally this wouldn’t have concerned us but as we were wet we wanted to shower and change as soon as possible. After a call to Lets Go Walking and confirmation they had been delivered we found our bags in the hotel bar. All good.
