We are not far out of Port Issac before we meet our first steep valley, but the route to Port Quin is an improvement on yesterday. Here we see Doyden Castle, built by Samuel Symmons  in 1827 for himself and his friends to drink and gamble.

We pass Lundy (local word for puffin) hole , a natural arch as we make our way round to the promontory of The Rumps, where there lumps of 'pillow lava'.The pocked affect occurs as the volcanic eruption is immediately cooled by the sea.

We corner round Pentire Point, turning into the Camel estuary, toward Hayle Bay and round Polzeath and Trebetherick to Daymer Bay

Here we have the option to visit St Enodoc's, the church where Sir John Betjeman is buried

We finally reach Rock when the plan is to catch the ferry to Padstow. The last ferry in July is 7pm

In Padstow there are many outlets associated with the chef Rick Stein.
