Constantine to Newquay (Sept 27)

I'm going to test your resolve... I hope you're keeping up! The next morning saw us heading out at about the same time to catch the bus to Newquay and then another to Constantine Bay. We were blessed with glorious sunshine and retrod our path to the beach, and then onwards around the cliffs to Treyarnon Bay.

Hatless Tim!

Fox Cove
Beyond Teyarnon the cliffs were sheer, and showed signs of massive erosion. Looking down over one particular edge I spotted a lovely pile of stones - reminiscent of the work of Andy Goldsworthy. If you,ve not come across him, he's worth checking out. Hopefully you can see the stones if you click on the picture :-)

Warren Cove

From here the coastline was showing the colours and shapes of yesterday, we were constantly delighted by how beautiful it was and how fortunate we were to be able enjoy it all.


We bought pasties at Porthcothan, and Tim a hat as he'd left his at home.

The cliffs at times, showed signs of smuggling... or so it said, with caves and steps cut into the cliffs. Trescore islands
We walked on to Park Head where there are the remains of a cliff castle but also signs of cliff collapse. From here the path takes you to Bedruthan Steps, which despite being a tourist honeypot, is stunningly beautiful.

The path took us on to Mawgan Porth...
