A coastal walk today to contrast with the moorland walk of the previous day. Before that a nice little photo of our B&B
We’ve walked many stretches of the coast in the neighbourhood having spent many family holidays down in Cornwall. Trevose Head is one neither of us had done so it seemed an obvious route. Winter had arrived and it was windy and bitterly cold but with a sharp clarity to the air and hopefully not too many showers. We parked up by the beach at Treyarnon Bay, one of our favourites but today we were the only car there
It was a wonderful morning, crashing waves and a mix of blue skies and threatening clouds
Along Constantine Bay beach and then past the very splendidly named Boobys Bay
As you approach the headland there is another “Round Hole” where a sea cave roof has collapsed. Very impressive.
The walks continue around the headland and past the lighthouse
As you round the headland the next three coves of Mother Iveys, Harlyn and Trevone Bays come into view
Mother Iveys Bay is steeply shelving so the waves hit the shore close in making for a great scene of Atlantic aggression.
As we approached Harlyn Bay we caught a glimpse of a seal and he played in the waves while we watched for a few minutes
Onto our last beach at Harlyn
I liked the contrast between the clouds the rippled sand and the seaweed covered rocks
Back along the lanes to the car and with a seven mile walk I was feeling the knee strain when I got back to the car. We decided that we’d earned a lunch at the very nice cafe at the YHA, soup and cider the order of the day
We actually managed to go in the sea as well for some kayaking and body boarding fun. Unsurprisingly we had the sea to ourselves what with it being bitterly cold. I wish I’d taken my camera as after one bruising hailstorm the views were sublime.
A cracking day finished off with another meal out, this time at The Basement in Padstow and once again, wonderful food as part of an ongoing birthday treat. A sacrifice I was willing to make 🙂
