Day 009 : Port Isaac – Boscastle

What a difference a day makes. Port Isaac looked a lot different this morning with a hint of sunshine. Was the Doc at home? With a chain link fence across the front of the house, I guess there’s no surgery today.

008_0074Right next door to Port Isaac is Port Gaverne with a few boats and a beach. A few pictures then up onto the grassy clad cliffs.

Today was a good thigh burner with many ups and downs across rocky inlets and also a good leg stretcher with plenty of opportunities to step out across the grassy cliff tops.

009_001There were so many coves and rocks to take in (Ranie Point, Delabole Point, Crookmoyle Rock, Trebarwith Strand). The photo opportunities gave me a chance to get my breath back.

009_010I continually towards a church on the headland before Tintagel, St. Materiana, it had been in view for some time. After a photo, I dropped down towards Tintagel Castle, but it was closed off.

009_022There was a need to keep going if I was to get to Boscastle before dark. Back onto the cliff tops of Barras Nose, Willapark and the Sisters Rocks. There was a big descent into the Rocky Valley. I was told it was worth a visit up the valley to St Nectan’s Glen to see the waterfalls but unfortunately time was not on my side.

009_032I turned into Boscastle as it was getting dark. That had been a hard days walk.
