I mentioned the King George V Memorial Walk in my ‘Fave Dog Walks’ post a few months ago.
But I really never tire of this place. The mile-long walk along the side of Copperhouse Pool (Hayle’s estuary) is the perfect length to walk up and back for an early evening stroll with Pepper.
The walkway is decorated with Victorian-style lamps, commemorative benches, hundreds of different plants, ponds, fountains and even a Scent & Touch garden for the Blind.
Because of all the different flowers, shrubs and trees along the walk, it honestly looks different each time we go. In Spring and Summer it’s alive with blossoms and sweet scents, whilst in Autumn it’s rich and golden with new seasonal plants – including beautiful succulents!
As well as all the ever-changing greenery, the view is always different due to the tide. To the right of the walkway is the Hayle estuary, which always looks totally different – sometimes empty and covered in birds, sometimes full to the brim with the water sparkling in the sun.
I forgot to take photos of it today, but I’m sure I’ll get some next time!
Obviously Pepper also rather enjoys this walk because there’s always something new to sniff or chew on – and there’s always doggy friends to say hello to on the way!
Even walking back to the car, you’re met with incredible views of the river, with boats passing by and people jogging along the causeway.
I’m loving these Autumn evenings because we’re starting to see the sun set during our after-work walks – in Summer I’m usually tucked up in bed before that happens!
Where’s your favourite evening walk?
