A beautiful afternoon as we head off towards St Keverne and take advantage of Roskilly’s car park, just on the outskirts. We follow the leafy lanes towards Dean’s Quarry and wander down the steep steps to Polcries.
The coastal path from here to Coverack sits atop a craggy and stony shoreline backed by grassy and wooded heathland. It is sometimes used for grazing cattle but we could see them ahead (towards Coverack) so opted to have a potter along the stony foreshore heading north instead.
When we have attempted this walk in the past the coastal path has been closed and unsafe so it was great to see that it has been repaired and opened up again and there is now a wide gravelled path running shoreside of the quarry (not sure if it still a working one). We didn’t venture down onto the first – Quarry Beach – as there was a lone paddle boarder having a snooze, who probably would not have been amused by Poppydog’s antics….
Instead we continued along the path a short distance to Godrevy Cove – fine stretch of sand and pebble beach.
There were a few families dotted around on this beach so Poppydog has to stay in the lead, though still able to enjoy a run about…
And of course a refreshing dunk in the sea…
At the end of Godrevy Cove a few rocky outcrops separated it from Leggan Cove which was fortunately empty so Poppydog could have her freedom.
Giving me a moment or three to enjoy the warm sunshine, a paddle and the view.
Returning to Godrevy Cove we took the footpath up to Rosenithon and a leisurely walk back along the lanes to the car.
