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.
