After a day of Christmas feasting, Boxing Day broke with full sunshine and only light winds, so it looked like a good day for a hike along the North Cornwall cliffs! Only a short drive from where we were staying in Truro, we ended up on the 250-foot (76-m) high cliffs between Portreath and Godrevy Island (see my 'General' tip for a may showing the location of this part of the coastline). The coastal footpaths in this part of England are the longest in the isles and can be strenuous if you really want to make a day of it. However, on this day, we were simply out to enjoy the views and the ocean airs - and what a great day it was.
There were quite a few people out enjoying the holiday weather and, as we passed one of the many flat sheep fields on the landward side, we even had some entertainment provided by a couple of remote-controlled miniature airplanes engaged in a dog-fight! If you are ever in Cornwall, get yourself up onto the cliff edges at some time, preferably with a picnic lunch. We have been here in summer too, and there are steep trails in some places that lead down onto secluded beaches, some of which are also nude beaches. However, not at this time of the year!
