Part Two begins... Padstow-Falmouth! (Sept 26)

I got all excited about resuming the blog... then went down to Wales again for a few days! Back now and ready to post!!! I hope you're ready for lots of pics... several are from my phone camera but the quality seems pretty good, all things considered :-)

Saturday 26th Sept saw us leaving the house at 7.15 am for the bus stop. A bus into Newquay was followed by another to Padstow, and the resumption of The Walk.

Padstow Harbour

The harbour at Padstow is very pretty, but we whisked our way through and on to the paved pathway out of town!

Popular pathway out of town!

It was a cloudy start to the day but the sun peeped through.

Looking back up river towards Padstow

There are some pretty beaches like Harbour Cove,

and I loved these cottages at Hawker's Cove.

We rounded Stepper Point and passed Butter Hole where the whole headland seems rather fragile, and there are glimpses back toward the Camel Estuary.

Near Butter Hole

As we walked down the coast the cliffs became more interesting,

showing marked slippage and erosion.
I was fascinated by the Round Hole near Trevone Bay...

It was amazing! Tim and I were rather surprised that there were not warning signs all over the place and envisioned the results of exuberant youth on a night time walk!!!

More soon...


  1. Lovely photos as always, and Tim is looking so handsome on the walk!!

  2. Lovely stuff! I did that section fom Padstow to Constantine and back to Padstow at Easter, having cycled up from Wadebridge.
