Even storm Ciara will not stop some of us venturing out and braving the elements.

We were being careful and watching the weather closely and we did have a small window of better weather to take our walk in.

We kept the walk short and stayed on tarmac roads.

Beforehand we again enjoyed a very good Sunday lunch at the Hawkins Arms in Probus which is situated between Truro and St Austell.

Half the group stayed in the pub playing cards whilst the walkers went walking.

We all met up again for afternoon tea and chat. A lot of the chat involved future club events and making arrangements for those events.

We would love to see more of our members join us when they can.

Here in Cornwall we try and encourage our new members to become active Country Linkers by putting on events.

Peter and Jan stepped up and did this yesterday. 

They arranged a table for 15 at a very busy pub in Bodmin which is situated at the end of the Camel Trail.

This section of the walk runs through a lovely wooded valley alongside the Camel River.

In this isolated area, the ground was covered with snowdrops and the daffodils were about to flower.

We returned to our cars and met up again at a coffee shop to complete our afternoon.

Many thanks to Peter and Jan for organising this walk and lunch.

As you can see we got out today for our annual New Year day picnic and walk.

We are so lucky with our weather on this particular day, today was mild still and calm.

The starting point was the little fishing village of Portreath on the north coast just a little down from Perranporth. It nestles in a deep-sided valley so there is always a steep climb out! I decided to take the group west towards St Ives, the cliff scenery is beautiful.

We were told by some passing walkers that a pod of dolphins are patrolling the shoreline and we were very lucky to spot them when we stopped for our picnic.

After a short while we turned inland to Tehidy woods and made our way back to Portreath on the way passing a few animal enclosures with goats, emu’s, poultry, birds of prey and believe it or not, reindeer!!!!

We never expected to see both dolphins and reindeer on the same walk.

Naturally, we finished the walk with pots of tea in the local pub.

We had a good start to our 2020 program of events.
