A lovely walk to Padstow….

You can see from the sky why we decided to go to the seaside…..20190226_103515 copy.jpgFrom Wadebridge we catch a cute little local bus to Polzeath (pronounced Polzerth). We decided as we were in no hurry to have a good look around the beach there, so we walked towards the headland and returned via the houses – magnificent views and very expensive.20190226_131719 copy.jpgGood surfing conditions and a few were out….20190226_132159 copy.jpg20190226_133603 copy.jpgBut it was time for our walk now, so we joined the South West Coast Path towards Rock.20190226_134957 copy.jpglooking back now and again and……20190226_143635-copy.jpg20190226_134808 copy.jpg…..with the occasional stop for a drink (it  was warm when you escaped the wind).
