Constantine Bay to Padstow

23/10/13 A midweek drive to Constantine Bay meant another shorter trip on the A30. The last shower of the day happened as we parked the car, then it was down the road to the coastpath.

After walking across the beach and around Booby Bay, it was off towards Dinas and Trevose Head. Near here is one of the holes that seem to happen around here.

The path then went along a muddy section behind the lifeboat station as it descended to Mother Iveys.

As you can see, the sun was out now. We walked across a section of the beach at Harlyn Bay, then back onto the road at the bridge and just missed out on the pub. Then it was Trevone Bay. The path was not too difficult, but there were some hills such as this one by the Merope Islands.

The path continues towards the daymark known as the Pepper Pot. Once there, we followed a path that was going in the right direction back up the Camel estuary, but wasn't the coastpath. We ended up scrambling under a barbed wire fence and down an embankment back onto the path. This was next to the Doom Bar that we had been drinking about.

It was low tide and you can see the water breaking on it here. The path continues along the estuary, between the dunes and the fields for some distance. Eventually the low tide ferry comes into view, but we continue into Padstow, where the high tide ferry lands.

No pubs on this section, so we visit a couple in Padstow before catching the bus back to the car.
