Port Isaac to Padstow 24th March

We were again given a good breakfast before being delivered back to Port Isaac to continue the walk. This was more familiar ground and again we were blessed with wonderful weather... sun and wind :-)

This walk talk us via Port Quin

... The Rumps and Pentire Point through Polzeath and on round to the ferry at Rock.

We watched the dredger taking sand out of the estuary,

and later saw it being offloaded at Padstow pier.

We found a good place to eat, and a willing pair of hands to take a photo to mark the end of Stage One.

We decided to stop here for the summer, Tim caught a bus back home, I stayed in another B&B and then caught the train back the next day.

It has been wonderful - we have walked about 160 miles and climbed about 30,000 feet (36,974 apparently!). The weather has been amazing, from snow to blazing sun, the scenery could not be bettered and the company perfect.
Roll on September/October when we can continue...


  1. You both look fantastic, and so tanned!!

  2. Thanks for all the details of the first leg of your walk. You both look so well and happy. I liked the video ending up at your boots. What an amazing coastline, I realize I know so little of it.

    Enjoy your summer break and then back into it.

  3. And The Polzeath Hotel now "The Oystercatcher" :( was home for a couple of working summers during uni.

    And I was there too just a month or so after you, between Rumps Point and Padstow. I >thought< I saw some huge boot prints!

    Looking forward to hearing about the next section when the crowds have died down.
