poetry and prose about place

along the pond

with 6 comments


On my stationary bike last week, I travelled (virtually) along the Cornwall coast from the mouth of Loe Pond to Rinsey.  During the week, I biked for 90 minutes, and saw 11 km of the Cornwall countryside.

The first day took me from the mouth of ‘The Loe’, along the pond to just west of Porthleven, in Shadywalk Wood.

The beach is a wide crescent of endless sand …

The path along ‘The Loe’ is narrow, tree-lined and shady.  I saw lots of hikers and fellow bikers, but not a single car.

Biking along a shady lane, with no worries about traffic, thick ferny woods to one side and the sparkle of a pond on the other … a lovely way to ponder the days of summer …

  3. I’d love to step right into your painting of the tranquil path around the pond. 🙂
    It’s a lovely picture.
