Despite the live music, St Christopher’s Hostel was great and I slept well. As they did not have a kitchen I cooked up breakfast and coffee on their patio and left at 7.00pm. Today was mainly uneventful and an easy day. I was able to get a “Bacon brioche with a dash of HP sauce” ie a bacon roll and two pots of tea at Mawgan Porth as a late breakfast. Next came one of the Cornish honey spots Bedruthan Steps and it did not disappoint.
Unfortunately due to the state of the tide I was unable to see them from the beach as recommended by Laura, my younger son’s partner.
The small but very busy shop at Porthcothan provided lunch and more tea, and I was then able to stroll along to the imposing Youth Hostel at Treyarnon with its bar, restaurant and large campsite, by around 2.30.
The tent went up in the dry and the evening was spent chatting to Martin a university lecturer who had been working in Sweden and was now taking a break before starting work in the UK.
