The weather was looking good again for today so we headed for a beach we had seen from the Padstow side of the Camel Estuary, Daymer Beach, with the intention of spending a day of rest in the sun and a BBQ in the afternoon.
We arrived at Daymer Beach which is just outside the small village of Trebetherick on the north side of the Camel Estuary. The grassy car park at the back of the beach was pretty full by the time we arrived and there was a brisk chilly breeze that put us off setting up on the beach. We decided to walk along the estuary to the small village of Rock that sits directly opposite Padstow and from where you can catch a ferry to cross the river.
We walked along the beach, past the many families that had braved the wind and set up for the day, picking up the coastal path to Rock. The path is very easy to walk and it takes about 20 minutes to reach Rock. Along the way, you pass the many beautiful beaches on the estuary, truly stunning, particularly on a sunny day.
Rock is reputed to be the home of more millionaires than anywhere else in Cornwall with exclusive villas and apartments discretely hidden amongst the trees and it certainly has an appeal.
We walked back along the same coast path to Daymer Beach and the car park, got the BBQ out and finished off with scones, jam and clotted cream.
As we left Daymer Beach, the clouds had gathered and it looks as if we are in for a wet and windy night.
