My destination goal for this day was Trevone but after my rest I felt so good I went past Trevone to Harlyn. The first part of the hike today took me to Rock on the east side of the River Camel estuary. From there I took a ferry to the west side of the estuary just outside of Padstow.

As you can see, the weather was really good. Lots of sunshine and a sea breeze to keep the views free of sea mist. The rest of the hike was really enjoyable and the coast views were at their best. When I got to Harlyn I ate my supper at a local hotel/pub/restaurant/surf shop. When I asked about local campsites they sent me to Permay Farm where I camped for the night with only one other holiday caravan in the field. A very basic campsite but perfectly adequate. In the morning there was an incredible dew and it took at least an hour to dry my bivvy sack, tarpaulin and sleeping bag by hanging them on the fence to dry in a strong breeze. The farmer donated his camping fee to Hazel's Heroes.
