Day 67 Little Bodieve to Trayarnon Monday 18 July

Distance 12.71 miles , cumulative 1,220.12 miles, time 5 hrs 30 mins, walking time 4hrs 5mins, pace 3.1 mph, camped Treyarnon Bay Caravan Park
Having had a little lie in, we said goodbye to Sam and John and left Bodieve to get to Wadebridge as the shops opened to begin the quest for new boots for Steve. We got supplies from the Coop and Steve went to a shop he had found from an internet search.

Bingo! A big thank you to Drew at Countrywise Wadebridge – http://www.countrywisewadebridge.co.uk – a lovely shop, they had like for like replacement boots in the right size and they were in the sale, so Lynn was pleased. Drew could not have been more helpful.Steve walked out in identical new boots and Drew took on the task of hazardous waste disposal. 

By ten past nine we were off and onto the Camel Trail our route to Padstow, another railway turned cycle route. It runs from Bodmin to Padstow and is now Cornwall’s third largest visitor attraction. 

We reached Padstow, or Padstein as it is now called, which was busy, but we found a quiet cafe for a sausage roll and tea.

We then used lanes, coast path and footpath to reach Constantine Bay and on to Treyarnon. It was a hot sunny day and we were glad that for us, a shorter one. We spent the afternoon lounging by the tent, on the beach and swimming in the sea. Cornwall at it’s best – glorious.

  3. In glorious sunshine there is no where better than Cornwall, your photos certainly show this. You were very lucky finding the boots you needed. Both completing your walk with new boots.

  4. Lovely photos, I grew up around that bit of coast and Treyarnon was where my aunt used to take my cousin and I to stay in a caravan in the summer holidays..
    My Dad is also floating around in the Camel Estuary, shooting the ducks as he always used to.. He’s been in there for 7 years now and no doubt resting in peace πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜Š
    Have also cycled the Camel Trail a few times to get an ice cream 🍦
