Sunday 22nd May Newquay, Coverack, and an evening walk in Porthleven

The last day of the holiday, and we were fortunate with the weather, so decided to visit Newquay. We couldn't find the park and ride, so went straight into the town centre and there was lots of free parking space, to our surprise, this is the view from the car park
And this figurehead is in an alleyway that runs off the end of the car park, we last saw it looking exactly the same more than 45 years ago!
And there is a bowsprit on the side of the building above the figurehead
The main street runs alongside the harbour and every 20 yards or so an alleyway leads through
to views like this
And here where you can see the main dockyard across the sound
This is from roughly the same position looking back into the town
And this is our last view od the waterfront as we headed back to the car
We felt we must have one last genuine Cornish Pasty for lunch, so we drove to St Keverne on the Lizard and bought a single large pasty to share and a Cinammon Whirl Danish Pastry from the local baker.
We drove to Coverack to eat them in wonderful scenery.
What a wonderful lttle harbour (dated 1750)
We just kept clicking away!
Then it was back to site for a rest and to start sorting round for the journey home tomorrow.
After tea we went for out traditional last evening walk in Porthleven
The wind had dropped and it was pleasant and warm
A pleasant way to end a great holiday.
Here's to the next time!
