A meandering early morning walk from East Looe, over Looe Bridge, around the Millpool carpark and up into Kilminorth Woods.It was much colder than the previous walk from West Looe but lovely nonetheless. We see mullet in the river, swans feeding, mallard, snowy egrets catching shrimp, gulls and herons in the heronry, all on our way around to the woods.If you live in Looe, you'll know everything I'm talking about but if you're new here or have visited us before, you may not have realised there are some lovely walks in the woods at the end of the Millpool carpark. One walk to try when Looe is crowded or you need a break from the sunshine is the easy and wheelchair friendly walk in Kilminorth Woods. It's a lovely, calm and serene place to head for, great for children to run around and explore (not always easy in Looe) and can be a relaxing end to a busy day on the beach.If you enjoy listening to this kind of relaxing podcast, please subscribe and drop me a line via iLoveLooe if you have any questions or requests. Cheers. Chris.
I wasn't expecting to record a podcast today but found myself walking around to West Looe thinking, "why don't I see if I can create a podcast on this walk". So I did! The sound is okay but the wind does affect things a little so forgive me for that. In the next podcast, I'll have a wind muffler to cut it out.It was a lovely morning when I set off at 8.30am. The tide was on its way in, the sun was shining and a gentle breeze caressed its way up the river. If you've been to Looe when it's warm, the tide is in and the sea water crystal clear, you'll know why people love it here.There's something magical about the light, the sunshine sparkling off the water and the boats bobbing about in the harbour... it's quite beautiful.This episode is basically a gentle ramble about the walk, things I can see and hear including a majestic grey heron, hunting in the rock-pools, ominous black clouds on the horizon behind Looe island, fishing boats heading out of Looe Harbour and people walking their dogs. It was a lovely walk and one worth considering if you come to Looe.At the end of the podcast, I also talk a little about the future of iLoveLooe and another website I am setting up called Cornblogger which will feature videos, podcasts and photographs all around Cornwall. I hope you can join me there too.Remember, if you like this episode, please subscribe, spread the word and drop me a line via iLoveLooe if you have any questions or requests. Cheers. Chris.
I popped into Looe today to have a chat with TV Celebrity Chef, Chris Tanner, who along with his brother James have set up a new farm shop on East Looe Quay. We talk about the new venture, their relationship with Looe and all the great plans they have for Quayside Fresh and the new fish and chip shop planned for later in the year. Do have a listen, subscribe via iTunes and let me know what you think.
Interview with Shockwave Pyrotechnics who set up and run the Looe, New Year's Eve firework displays. Both displays (6pm and midnight), are fired from the the end of Banjo Pier and the team had their hands full this year as there was quite a swell at high tide. A big thank you to Glenn and James for taking the time to chat... much appreciated. To everyone listening, I hope you enjoy the podcast. Please spread the word about and rate the podcast on iTunes. Cheers. Chris.
