We decided to do less the next day so after doing some essential washing, we caught the bus into Crantock where I was fascinated by the Pound.
This is a circular, stone-walled enclosure, right in the middle of the village and was used to keep stray animals safe. We then walked down to Penpol, this is Tim's favoured route into Newquay as there is a footway across The Gannel at low tide.

It is very pretty here; it reminded me of the walk from St Clements to Tresillian along the river.
We then walked across Crantock Beach, up the steep dunes and out on to the headland. This is Tim's own territory and it was nice to be walking around his special places.
This was one of Mum's special places too.
The sand in the coves at Polly Joke were at different levels which played tricks with your eyes! We then went out on to Kelsey Head where Tim had watched the eclipse of the sun in 1999.
The view south stretches down St Ives,
and north up to Trevose, a wonderful view point - I felt as if I was safe encompassed in the arms of those two distant headlands.
