|Helford to Gweek - Falmouth
||From Helford Passage all the way up to Gweek and back. Not stopping at Daphers French Mans Creek this time.
|Helford Passage to Gweek
||On yet another stunning 2018 summer's day, we put the canoe in just past the Helford Passage and paddled up to Geewk at the top of the Helford.
Then a dawdle back stopping at an old lime quay.
Highlight of the day for Liz was teaching Scooby to enjoy swimming! We think that his buoyancy aid may have helped.
At Penwarne Farm Campsite - lovely views in a field overlooking the sea between Falmouth and the Helford.
||An early summer long weekend paddling on the Fal and the Helford.
With the winds being from the north, we chose the Helford for the Saturday.
Back to Frenchman's Creek but with a rising tide we were able to get right to the end of it.
Lunch and some Scooby ball action at Tremayne Quay (and helping an old wooden sailing boat moor alongside) and then in to the strangely named Vallum Tremayne Creek for the first time.
|Helford Passage to Padagarrack Cove
||With Winguru and the Met Office differing in forecast speed by about two and a half times, we wanted to avoid the possibility of too much incoming tide against the westerly wind. So we had a short paddle from Helford passage down to Padagarrack Cove and then up past Port Navas.
|More creeks and kingfishers
||A paddle round the creeks of the Helford. More kingfishers today - in Frenchman's Creek. Lunch at Merthen Quay and then back via Polwheveral and Porthnavas creeks
|Helford and Frenchmans Creek
||A walk along the Helford Estuary, back inland and then along Frenchmans Creek back to the village of Helford
||A short walk down to one of our favourite canoeing spots on the Helford - without a canoe this time.
This is where Scooby previously learnt to swim just for the fun of it so Liz was keen to take him back for another paddle.
|Rosemullion Head and Mawnan
||Round Rosemullion Head and back via Mawnan Smith. Lovely walk but the plan was slightly spoilt as the midges on the Head put paid to the idea of reading there for a couple of hours.
|The Helford and Frenchman's Creek
||From Helford Passage via Frenchman's Creek up into Mawgan Creek towards the top of the Helford Estuary. A little windy on the way back meant plenty of exercise!
