Join me on a walk from East Looe, over Looe Bridge and into Kilminorth Woods.
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.

Join me on a walk from West Looe seafront, beside Looe Harbour and back to East Looe
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.

Interview with Mark Camp about the Looe Walking Festival 2012
Podcast 21: In this iLoveLooe podcast, I get the chance to sit down and interview Mark Camp from the Looe Tourist Information Centre. We chat about his involvement with the Looe Walking Festival and each of the walks going on this year. The walking festival starts on Saturday 15th September with the 'Duloe Beer and Cider Festival Walk'. Sorry, I mean 'Duloe Circular Walk' which I wonder if he named it after trying to get home from last year's event :)This podcast is about 30 minutes.Please subscribe to the podcast via iTunes to get automatic updates to your device and if you are able to, please leave a positive review on iTunes as it makes a huge difference and helps spur me on.All the best.Chris
If you live in or around Looe or just love visiting, these will provide either memories of events, or an I sight into what goes on behind the scenes at local events. More power to Chris for starting these. It will turn into a grand library. Ultimately a great guide for things to do from the I Love Looe website.
