After the sleep of the dead in Newquay I caught the bus from Treyarnon to Newquay and then had an easy walk from the harbour to Perranporth. There was a few sharp showers but soon the sun came out. I had just walked across Crantock Beach when a …….Cornish stone in the middle of the path decided to trip me up. As I was going down hill with a rucksack on my back and walking poles I did not do a good job of saving myself. Especially as another Cornish stone was waiting at head height to meet my mouth & nose! Bit of a nose bleed. No lost teeth but a bruised mouth and chest! After wet wipes and some reassuring words from some dog walkers I carried on. The rest of the afternoon was spent in gorgeous sunshine across some beautiful stretches of beach. Also guest house lovely so as they say that’s all good then
Day 21 Sunshine after the fall
Published by northcote9
I will be retiring again after a lifetime in the NHS and returning in 2016, because my pension wasn’t going far enough. ( I am a WASPI woman) I live in Northampton with my husband Andy & we have one daughter who lives with her partner in London. I am a keen walker and completed 300 miles of the Southwest Coastal path through August in 2015 Due to returning to work, illness of my father I have only just sorted doing the second half next June/July. As before I will record my journey from Poole, Dorset back to St Just, Cornwall. View all posts by northcote9

Oops -a-daisy! So really a nose job as well- no end to your talents! Must be your last week -yeah? Has Andy joined you?
Yes arrived safely xx
Oh dear, but it sounds as before you are good at bouncing back from falling, well done you. I love Crantovk beach, I have spent many days and nights staying on that beach many years ago. Glad you had some sunshine looks good for today, we are rain sodden here. I have been bitten on my lower leg and after working a night it has swollen up, I was hoping for a Darbyshire walk tomorrow, so piriton and nurofen plus plus plus, fingers crossed I can make it.
So my little upset is nothing compared to your many walks and bad foot not too mention falls!
So crack on girl less than a week to go, looking forward to seeing back in northampton x
