DAY 6: Newquay to Harlyn Sands (16.81m)

Leaving behind the less than salubrious Newquay, I spend the day winding my way over cliffs and across bays towards Trevose Head and my final destination of Harlyn Sands holiday camp.

I love the herringbone slate walls which border the fields. In places they are covered by squishy plants and wild flowers.

I have been reading "Betjeman's Cornwall", a collection of the poet's prose and poems and I'm certainly walking through the landscape of Betjeman.
