Our joint Devon group and Cornwall group walk began with a brief history of Looe Island which could be seen through the low cloud which hung over the coast all day.
We paused along the way to admire the view points and have points of interest explained to us. Near Looe railway station we were joined by our 12th member of our walk who had arrived by train.
The wonderful view points and points of interest continued up the hill out of Looe town and over the fields above, and eventually to roads lined with well spaced bungalows and their splendid gardens which lead us into Plaidy.
After our picnic lunch on a very peaceful Plaidy beach, we started back along the lanes which eventually opened out onto the coastal path back to Looe. Here we were treated to snippets of historical interest as we were guided through the back streets away from all the tourists.
Returning to our starting point at Hannafore, we were able to socialise for a little longer, sitting on picnic benches in the Island View Cafe gardens enjoying tea and delicious cakes.
