Up the creek

 Pill Creek runs eastward opposite Fowey and just upstream from Polruan. We've walked the the Hall walk path which runs along the hills at either side of the creek many times, so I decided to explore at water level for a change.

It was right on low water as worked my way up the creek, once around the bend and out of sight of the moorings it's a complete escape with nothing but wildlife and the wind in the trees to disturb the peace.

I ran out of water well short of the buildings, the old lime kiln  and quay at Pont Pill. Even in a kayak there was only an inch or so of water above the quite firm and sandy bottom.

 Sadly the creek is all to short but it was a wonderful, calm place to just sit take in the surroundings.
