Getting blown inside out but the views were stunning.
Trip to Uk, Day Twenty Nine.
|The sensible ones who put their waterproofs on before we started, unlike me who got soaked so quickly it was not worth it in the end.|
Again we headed out to the North coast but this time further up near to Padstow and Waderbridge to visit a spot out on Pentire Head, we parked at New Polzeath and walked out towards the head.

Well to say it was a TAD Breezy was one hell of an uderstatment, at times I thought we were going to lose Lynn over one of the stone walls and as big as I am it nearly took me off my feet several time but it came in handy later as I got soaked and it dried me out almost as quickly.

It was a stunning spot over looking a beautiful part of the Cornish Coastal footpath and I was very pleased Lynn and Steve thought of visiting the area. We continued on down to the Rumps and then back tp to a track which looped us back around to the car.
|You can certainly see why Binyon would be inspired to write here.|

|One half of the Rumps.|
Later in the evening we went down to Porthleven and to a place Lynn and Steve like called Amelies and had a very nice meal as it was my last night in Cornwall, well for now anyway.
