On Friday we drove to Rock and took the ferry across to Padstow, famous for being home to Rick Stein, who has several restaurants and shops there. It is an extremely picturesque little town and I'd love to visit again. We bought some mackerel for supper and cornish pasties for lunch at his Deli on the harbour front. We sat by the harbour eating our lunch, harangued by noisy, demanding gulls.
On Saturday we had a very long and hilly walk into Padstow which was great but a bit tiring, so we took a taxi back.
Sunday was a bit rainy and very fresh. We walked down to Polzeath, about a mile away, which is very popular with surfers. The waves seemed to be about perfect and there were loads of people there, many with their dogs, swimming (far too chilly for me), surfing and kayaking.
