14th October 2012
I woke up to full sunshine and a blue sky, I wanted a quiet day so I decided to walk the two and a half mile flat coastal path to Penzance, (if my dodgy leg and back would let me). It took me over two hours but I made it, also I was going to meet my parents in Penzance as they were coming down to stay in the next door caravan and I would be also getting a lift back to Marazion with Them (Thank God).

The first place I passed was Marazion marsh which is owned by the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds). The marsh is home to many tame Rabbits, there wasn't many birds to see that day apart from a Heron, Swans and a couple of Mallard Ducks.

There were many runners out that morning as well as people with their dogs, there was even two people on horse back making the most of this beautiful October morning. It was a lovely peaceful morning, as there is no helicopter service and not many trains are running, the only noise came from the seagulls and the small ripple of waves on the shore.

|I've Made It|
I reached Penzance at about 11 am where I headed for an all day restaurant that looks down on the harbour, my late wife liked going to this place for coffee and a tea cake. Whilst there I had a lovely pot of earl grey and thick sliced toast, I had the feeling that my late wife was at the table with me.

That lunchtime I met up with my parents once at the Godolphin Hotel which has great view across to St Michael's Mount

After the Godolphin I took the quiet back lane to the caravan, it was so quiet I didn't see a single person.

That evening we once again returned to the Godolphin for a few pints of the local brew, which went down very well.
