Newquay - October 2014 - Porth Beach and Island

All too soon it was Sunday morning and time to pack up and head home but not before and early morning walk on Porth beach and up onto Porth Island.

We'd had another lovely long weekend away and we were lucky with the weather again.

We're hoping to get away again, somewhere local, towards the end of October.


Newquay - October 2014 - Newquay Harbour

Saturday was another lovely day, although very windy which made it a bit cooler.  We were up bright and early so that we could walk into Newquay to spend the day just mooching around!

We walked around the coast path and down into the harbour and then had lunch in town.

That evening we had an Indian takeaway delivered to the site (best in Cornwall!).

Newquay - October 2014 - Porth to Watergate Bay

As the extended Indian summer continued to delight us all we decided to have a weekend away locally.  We'd not booked anything but called Porth Beach Touring Park (one of our very regular local campsites) the day before we left, just to confirm that pitches were available.

We arrived late morning, pitched up alongside the stream, had lunch and then headed off out for the afternoon.  We did a fantastic walk from Porth to Watergate Bay and back all along the stunning coast path.  It was very warm too and both the coast path and beaches were pretty busy with people, like us, enjoying the last of the good weather!

That evening we enjoyed a lovely meal in the pub on the beach (The Mermaid).
