Ok. So, we've done Lelant. Time to head back and see some of things we missed on the way out .....
What do you mean what about Hayle?
Don't be silly. Look, if you want to walk all the way to Hayle that's your funeral. Just follow the road out of Lelant, then head left and out along the causeway (dodging flying traffic). You'll eventually reach you know where.
Believe me, Hayle is a place that is best appreciated from a distance.
Meanwhile back on the coast path, where it runs between The Hayle Estuary and the West Cornwall Golf Course, we discover that we aren't the only people fleeing Hayle.
Remember that stretch of water between Porth Kidney and Hayle beach you thought you could just wade across?
Well, I did warn you that there is a deep channel in it to let the boats in and out. Mind you, what with shifting tides and sands it can be a bit of an art form negotiating it! Involving only marginally less manoeuvring than a four wide receiver set from the shotgun on fourth and twenty, we proudly present the Hayle Bar fandango!
Ironically, the one thing you don't want out of all this manoeuvring is a touchdown otherwise you will be stuck there for quite some time before the tide will float you off!
