South West Coast Path: I may be an American, but…

We cut across the headlands to Holywell Beach, hoping to dodge the rain cloud coming our way.

As we came over the rise, we saw a crowd of folks gathered down on the beach. Many appeared to be sporting medieval costumes, some were perched on horseback, others just milling about. There was also a small fleet of rickety, wooden boats ready to launch. I pitied the poor stunt men or women who had to set sail in today’s weather!

We knew the crew was filming something. My guess was Poldark.

When Reg asked one of the staffers, he told us it was an episode of East Enders. Well, I may be an American, but my British pop culture is not that rusty! Definitely not East Enders. We were later told it was a Netflix film, but the name escapes me.

We spent the rest of the walk into Perranporth simply trying to remain upright. Winds whipped off the ocean at 30-40 mph (depending on which weather report is to be believed), the worst we’ve ever walked in.

    It has been a long time since I’ve watched Eastenders but some sort of drama always seems to follow them in that tiny area of London, maybe a beach trip would do them some good!
