Another very long post with many photos and little commentary, because I don’t know that many synonyms for beautiful. So take a hike with us here.

Treknow/Tintagel/Coast Path

Yes! We could see the ocean from our bedroom window after all! After a great breakfast, we walked a short way down to the Coast Path from our B&B, the Penallick Inn. Hikers there recommended that we turn left to go to Trebarwith Strand while the tide was out. It was very good advice.

There were caves! Neither of us had the guts to go to the very back of one long one, since it got dark back there.

Sandy, who had his reservations at first about coming down here, suggested that maybe we could spend the rest of the day on this beach. But it was our only full day here, and the tide was coming in, and we wanted to go to Tintagel Castle, so we reluctantly left.

The trail was very steep near the beach, and that was tough coming back, but we did it and we were glad of it. We took a break, then went back, turned right, and hiked the Coast Path to Tintagel Castle.
