We caught the first 555 bus of the day (sunday) at 10.03 from , setting us down at 10.50 at Stores & a 10 min stroll brought us back to the SWCP. We walked over the low headland to , then on round a very wiggly section going S past Pepper Cove, Warren Cove & , each one dramatic sheer cliffs and caves, all with nesting gulls.

We walked up a new stone surfaced path with steps (to reduce walker-related damage to the surroundings) to the NT centre at . After a cream tea we came out to find the rain had returned with a vengeance so we only continued for another 45 mins to and where we caught a 556 bus back to Wadebridge, arriving at around 17.00.

The South West Coast Path is the longest of the official UK National Trails, running from Minehead in Somerset round the English south west peninsula coast to Poole in Dorset. The total length is just over 1000 kilometres or, more precisely, 630 miles. Only very dedicated walkers could contemplate completing the whole walk in one go, although plenty of people have done just this. Received opinion is that it would take around 6 weeks, even for the most dedicated.
