Coast Path Week 3

Looks like I have omitted a report on week 3 of our SWCP walk.  Better late than never... The route was from Polperro to Helford Passage, and Roland and I did it from 24 to 28 October last year.  Day one was horribly wet but a highlight of the week was that night's B&B, the Greenbank in Fowey.  As I said to Ken Rigby, our host:  "If we had turned up in such a wet state at almost any of the other B&Bs we used during the week we'd still have been damp the following day!  Greenbank definitely gets our vote as the best B&B of the week - best view (see pics), best breakfast, best company and best value!"


We hope to do the last leg, to Lands End, in May.  There is some uncertainty about the date as I am waiting for  second cataract op (has the first one 2 years ago).

  1. Make a note of the file numbers of the ones you would like;
  2. email me at mike@fotoboat.com with the filenumbers.
I will send you a link for downloading the files, which will be high resolution (3600 x 2400 pixels), good for printing at 12x8 inches and bigger.  I will also send you a PayPal invoice.  The pricing:
  1. Single high res file:  £10
  2. Five high res files:  £20

I will be teaming up with Steve Best in RIB Scooby for this one.  We should get some sunshine and breeze, both essential ingredients for excellent photos.  There may be a slideshow in the Clubhouse on Saturday evening - watch this space for details.

RS100/300 File Numbers

It has been pointed out to me that I uploaded the RS100/300 images without the file numbers!  That's now been fixed.

I'm planning to be on the water on Thursday and Friday, with Saturday in reserve if necessary.  Forecast for the first 2 days looks pretty good at the moment.  Proceeds from the event will go towards my fund raising for the Childrens' Hospice South West

Coast Path Week 2

Week 2 now done, from Salcombe to Polperro.  Original plan was to finish at Fowey this week, but that would have been 7 pretty strenuous miles too far, and as Polperro has transport links to the outside world we decided to be sensible.  Bird of the week was probably the skylark, though we did see more stonechats.  This photo of a Looe seagull was taken with the 24mm lens so you can tell how very unafraid they are!
