Finally I got out of Plymouth with no ice stopping me. The first order of the day was to catch the ferry to Mount Edgecumbe, this was a splendid ferry with the added bonus of a coffee shop near the jetty.
I landed in Cornwall after a ten minute trip then I set off on the path.
It skirted the splendid gardens of Mount Edgecumbe estate and when through numerous hilly woods. I arrived in the picturesque village of Cawsand shortly after. This was a proper Cornish village of narrow streets, tiny houses and vast property prices. I had a chat with some locals who warned me of how cold it would be on Rame head.
On arrival at Rame Head I found they were right. A brisk wind and a smattering of rain came in and chilled me and the half dozen ponies who were there also.
The walk along the cliffs at Whitesands was a steady mix of climbing paths and getting views of Rame Head. The final part of the walk was along the roads of Cornwall which had me dodging from side to side as the road twisted and turned whilst going up and down at the same time.
The romans didn’t build this one!
