And those endless beaches that go on and on

SW Coastal path


I won’t say much about Wednesday because I think the photos speak for themselves.  We decided to walk from our cottage down the South West Coastal Path to Bude which was about 6 miles and in the back of my head, I knew my parents (who were still on holiday in Bude) would be around to drive me back if I was feeling pathetic.  Unfortunately, they were out for the day so we had no choice but to make our way back!

We walked the mile from our cottage to Duckpool beach where we faced our first challenge – an epic slippy, steep hill.  When I got to the top, I was ecstatic.  And then I realised that slippy steep hills would feature quite heavily on the walk.

We carried on walking, up and down hills in the beautiful Cornish sunshine.  We had such perfect weather for this walk.  We watched surfers at Sandymouth Beach from the top of a cliff, stumbled down the steps at Northcott Mouth Beach, and tried to spot my parents’ cottage at Bude.

When we got to Bude, we stopped at the same coffee shop we visited on Monday for some sandwiches, coffee, and cake.  The owner was even kind enough to give us a free slice of cake to take home which was delicious.

There were very few people about on the cliffs – they were missing out!  The scenery was spectacular.

We had a great view of the radio station (as Google calls it) and the less said about that the better.

We got back to Duckpool beach as the sun was setting so we hot-footed down the hill to sit on the beach.  There was a lone dog walker at the shore but other than that, we had the beach to ourselves.  It was a beautiful end to a beautiful day, and I’m so pleased Husband convinced me to do it.
