Day 2 Padstow to Morgan Porth and Day 3 Morgan Porth to Newquay

Day 2:
We set off by 09:00 and set a steady pace down the Camel Estuary towards Stepper Point.  A couple of fishing boats chugged past heading for the open sea, beautiful views towards Polzeath and Daymer Bay.  We had our first snack at the tower on Stepper Point.  Butter Hole was our first exposure to steep high cliffs, magnificent but didn't want to stand too near the edge!  We were pleasantly surprised to find a cafe (Madrips) open and had a welcome coffee there.  We pushed on, Harlyn Bay was full of surfers and the views from Trevose Head spectacular.  We had lunch sitting on a bench looking towards "Minnows Islands" just south of Treyarnon.  The waves crashed into the cliffs, the noise was continuous and the magnificent views we shared with no one else.  After lunch on through Porthcothan and Bedruthan Steps.  We arrived at Bedruthan Steps Hotel tired at 15:00.

Day 3:
An easy day, so we set of at 10:00.  A good pull out of Morgan Porth and some great walking down to Watergate Bay  The rain had arrived so we stopped at the "Beach Hut Cafe" for a hot coffee and a browse over the Sunday papers.  Then with our waterproof trousers on we strode forth in the light rain towards Newquay.  We had lunch at Fistral Blue overlooking a surf competiton on Fistral Beach.  Staying at a great B&B "The Beaches at Newquay" in Pentire, Newquay.
