Now refreshed we headed towards the local British Columbia area with its tall conifers, stream & steep-sided valley as John so famously calls it. I must admit it is a lovely area in contrast to the farmer's fields on the way to Liskeard. Shortly after we started the seriously long climb towards Colliford Lake, & I was pleasantly surprised how dry the lanes were. Trevor was enjoying the start of the climb because of plenty of grass up the middle of the lanes. So after what seemed a long time of uphill climbing we arrived alongside Colliford Lake. Trevor remarked how low the water level was, not that there hadn't been much rain of late. Now going along nicely on a fairly level road, with views of the Lake & moorland sprinkled with herds of cattle here & there. I spotted a never seen before, group of standing stones, which Yolande may have taken a picture of? This is not an area to be out in when the weather changes (Bodmin Moor). Soon after Dozmary Pool to our right, we turned right looking forward to a short steep descent to the road alongside the River Fowey. A nice few miles of steady downhill saw us arrive at the Golitha Falls, cafe.
Now fully refreshed & on our way we were soon to take in Dave's pleasant alternative route to Pensilva. On arrival Yolande, Graham & John took refreshments in the Village shop. So Trevor, Dave & myself carried on through the usual places to Saltash. Here we bade farewell to Trevor, & carried on home, with 50 miles on the clock.
