The 14th Day began with weather warnings for heavy rain. But the sky looked OK as we had breakfast. By the time we were ready to leave Padstow the rain had started so on went the wet weather gear and we made our way up the path to StepperPoint and the 13.5 miles to Porthcothan.
We had some brief shelter when we reached a round tower and two other walkers joined us for a few minutes rest before we carried on to Trevone Bay for a hot tea. The storm had passed by the time we had finished our drink but it was still raining and although the path was easygoing in terms of climbs and descents, the rain made hard going at times and slowed our progress.
When we got to Harlyn Bay, Fluff’s daughter Annie and her two dogs, joined us for the afternoon walk and the weather improved with strong sunshine for the last few miles.>
We rounded Trevose Head and saw the impressive bays with some surfers. Another stop at the YHA at Treyarnon for refreshments and then along the coast to reach Porthcothan where we were met by Linda, Mary, Steph, Esther and Gill. The final walk was the of course up a hill for about a mile to reach Old Macdonald’s Farm for the night.
In the evening the whole group went for dinner at the local pub to go through the stories and pictures from the two weeks which seemed to have flown by.
