Cremyll to Kingsand to home - a Devon and Cornwall loop from Plymouth

Toddle along to Stonehouse and the Cremyll ferry and you chug across from Devon to Cornwall. Mount Edgcumbe offers acres of sculpted parkland but also coastal woodland walks with some sense of the ancient about them ... especially when you come across roe deer darting between he beech trees.
Then on along the South Coast Way to Kingsand, previously the bordertown between Devon and Cornwall. It's a jewel of a place. A ferry from the neighbouring bay, Cawsand, then peeped its horn so I hopped aboard and was carried back across Plymouth Sound to the Barbican. From where I walked home to my apartment on the Hoe ... four hours of wondrous awayness.
