Last Day – Back to Reality, via Portchester

So after what seems like months, it was time to head home and say goodbye to Crantock Beach.

Crantock Beach

The location couldn’t be better – it was great to be able to walk down to the beach – I’ll definitely be making a return visit.

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.

Even though it was still early the sun was a little hot to be climbing up the steep cliff paths – I managed though.

Padstow & Trevone

OK – this can’t be England – yet another sunny day!

Started off in Padstow with breakfast at Rick Stein’s Cafe where you are always guaranteed an excellent Kipper. Next a walk along the coastal path to Hawker’s Cove – it was one of the lowest tides of the year so most of the walk was along the beach.

Next I took the boat trip around Newland – I’ve taken it before but this was the first time I had to catch the boat from the north beach,

Bedruthan Steps

Boring, I know, but it was another gloriously sunny day, today.
With good weather, I don’t want to waste any more time than necessary driving so I headed for nearby Carnewas for Bedruthan Steps.

Not Bedruthan Steps

With tide right out it was the ideal time to walk along the beach at Carnewas and see each of the steps.

A return trip to the Eden Project to start the day.

Eden Project Bunny Head

This was my 5th visit and there is always something new to see – this time, these bunny heads!

The weather fooled me today – I thought the sun would win and the clouds would go so I planned an afternoon at the beach.


So I ended up at Perranporth – first a wander around the town then a walk along the huge beach. Then I headed back to Crantock for a wander into the village – only then did the sun manage to poke through the clouds.

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 remembered it – I don’t know if the town’s had a face lift or it was just because it was a gloriously sunny day – but it was actually quite pleasant walking through the town. Like many towns it bears the massive scar of the abandoned Woolworth store.
