The South West Coastal Path is certainly not easy!  It's pretty strenuous, very uppy-downy, rocky, tortuous, muddy, slippery - in fact 6 miles of this is as hard as 12 along the road - but on a day like this, sunny, great visibility, a cool breeze, waves crashing on the rocks, a new and spectacular view round every corner, it's worth every bit of the effort and more!
Jane dropped me at the start, at Raginnis, walked a bit with me, then went back and drove round to meet me at Lamorna Cove.  We had a coffee (and Jane got a parking ticket), then she walked a bit more before driving round to the end, at Penberth, and walking back to meet me.
Haven't done so much proper climbing since Wales - I shall certainly be stiff tomorrow!
Only two more stages to go.  Tomorrow is only a short stage but I pass both the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and the Minack Open Air Theatre, both of which provide good excuses to linger.  Saturday is slightly longer - from Porthgwarra to Land's End.  Finish!
Then what?
