Day 3 Tuesday - Porkellis to Point

Walking 10.15am to 4.20pm
Distance walked 11 miles
Distance left 1033 miles

I was dropped off at Porkellis at 10.20am after a guided tour of the alpacas' quarters. Chris was waiting at the Star Inn and we spent the day walking back to his house at Point, south of Truro.

The weather was fine, such a change from yesterday. Chris had brought some excellent Cornish pasties and we consumed these while waiting for the Golden Lion to open.

Stithians Reservoir

Apart from the walk alongside the reservoir, the day was road walking but very pleasant and conversation helped the day pass quite quickly. We saw a lizard and it co-operated long enough for us to take photos.

Does anyone know what it is? In fact, might it be a newt?

  1. It's a newt but can't tell you which species.

  2. Hi,

    Good luck on your LEJOG adventure.
    Look forward to following your progress.

    It's a female common newt.
    Not so common in some places anymore, unfortunatly.

    All the best.
