Last Day – Back to Reality, via Portchester

Around St.Agnes

Last day, and guess what – it’s sunny again!

I have tried to limit the amount of driving I do this holiday and this day is no exception – just a short trip along the coast to Trevaunance Cove.

Padstow & Trevone

Newquay & Crantock Beach

Took a trip into Newquay to replace the camera that gave up on me during my accent of the Coniston Old Man. I hadn’t planned to visit the town during my stay as whilst the beaches are great, it is a little too commercialised for my liking.

It wasn’t half as bad as I
