Day 010 : Boscastle – Widemouth Bay

Boscastle was waking up as I left the harbour. Lots of cottages and small businesses all ready for the spring and summer visitors.

010_045Up onto Penally Point that guards the entrance to Boscastle harbour. After taking in the views back towards Boscastle and along the coast, I was on my way.

After all the rain there was a nice waterfall dropping into the sea at the Pentagon.

010_047Following the coastline, I can see the Cambeak headland ahead. It seems to take ages to get there.  We turn inland and drop down into the cove of Crackington Haven. I step into the cafe for a coffee and cake. Other than the lady behind the counter, I seem to be the only other person in the hamlet. Whilst drinking my coffee, a van pulls up and a man comes in for a drink. After a Hello, how you doing introduction, it turns out that the guy comes from Alsager, which is less than 10 miles from where I live.

010_050There was a tough climb out of Crackington with plenty of zig-zagging through the gorse onto the cliff tops. It was then a long plod along the tops, a bit of road walking around Millook.

010_054After a bright start to the day, I finished in rain at Widemouth Bay.
