Today was a perfect day for hiking, with lots of sun, cool temperatures and no wind.
We started our 7 mile hike in Harlyn, basically circumventing the Camel Estuary and following the coastline.
Along the way, we crossed pastures where cows were grazing, walked through fields, bordered the shoreline with its native grasses, walked along beaches and marveled at more of the amazing cliffs that are representative of Cornwall. Here is a little album of photos from the hike:
This is a "day mark" to help sailors navigate during the day. It is not a lighthouse.
A late bloomer. Not sure what it is.
These are the old coast guard cottages on the right and the captain's cottages on the left, now private housing.

At 2:30 we took the Black Tor Ferry (which has been in continuous operation since 1337) across the Camel River to Rock, an upscale village on the coast.
We finished our day with a stop in Port Isaac, made famous as the fictional Port Wenn in the Doc Martin TV series.
The small house in the middle with the orange trim is Doc Martin's.
We arrived back at 5:30 and had dinner at 7. Roger, the owner, made Pimm's Cups for several of us which were very good. A great ending to another great day.
