About a week a go, Jon and I spent a couple of days in Cornwall just to get some peace and quiet. Jon’s parents own a caravan at Par Sands which is an hours drive from Plymouth and whilst we regularly visit here for a short break at least twice a year we’ve never walked the coastal path from Par to Fowey so we took up the challenge!
It took us four hours altogether and I’d say this is a good walk for intermediate walkers, definitely not ideal for beginners, those with small children or have a disability. What makes this walk slightly challenging is the winding and uphill paths. I attend yoga on a weekly basis, I am a professional belly dancer and my BMI is 19.49 so I am quite clearly a fit and healthy person but I struggled on a few occasions, I was breathless and felt out of shape so this is definitely not a relaxing leisurely walk! If you feel like you would be up for it, the walk has spectacular views with pit stops in sweet bays and coves for a picnic or maybe stop off at Polkerris beach which is a popular hot spot for tourists as it provides restaurants, accommodation, water sports and an art gallery. The coastal walk from Par to Fowey was reasonably difficult but not impossible, we did make it to Fowey hurray! Then we took the local bus back to Par and treated ourselves to Cornish fish and chips!

Before the walk Jon treated me to some pretty yoga photos on Par Sands beach because he was testing out a new lens. The photos will definitely be used as promo material for my new webpage because they are a good combination of light, airy, earthy and cute. These are the perks of dating a photographer but then in exchange I do assist and support him on his photo shoots, I never just expect him to take photos of me, there has to be balance and a positive exchange of energies don’t you think? Sharing is caring.
