Portscatho to Place

14/4/13 The public transport options for this one were limited, so we opted for a circular walk. I parked in Portscatho and we popped into the Plume of Feathers for a pint even though it was just off the path. Then it was off along the coastpath on this breezy, cloudy Sunday. It was fairly gentle stuff through the Roseland countryside.

This view of Towan Beach was taken from an interesting vantage point...

 The pole is used for practicing breeches buoy rescues. The path continues towards St Anthony Head.

This is Portbeor Beach looking towards Zone Point. After passing Zone Point, the large Fal Estuary comes into view. Unsurprisingly, there is plenty evidence of military defences around St Anthony Head.

The path now has that estuary feel to it. Sheltered from the elements.

The path goes in land to avoid Place House and ends up in a graveyard.

Didn't notice if any of the graves were of coastpath walkers. We eventually end up at the jetty for the St Mawes ferry.

Just as well that we were planning a circular walk. The ferry wasn't running. We followed a wooded, muddy path along the river before an inland stretch towards Gerrans. The pub there was shut and so it was a relatively early return journey home.
