Day 3: Newquay to Mother Ivey’s Bay to Boscastle

FootstepsAwoke at 4am. Packed up sleeping system before jumping in the kayak and heading out of Newquay harbour towards Trevose Head. Seas confused with a relatively impressive groundswell. Watched in awe as the sun rose above the mainland whilst the sea birds danced a few centimetres  above the waves. Three hours passed before I reached Trevose head where I picked up the tidal race which through me around the head to Mother Ivey’s bay. I landed through very light dumping waves. Slept on the beach for a few hours before returning to the water where I pointed the boat towards Pentire  point. The race was confused around this headland (no surprise there). I continued on towards Tintagel head and then along the cliffs to Boscastle. When I reached Boswell I was unable to locate the harbour entrance so I spoke to the coastguard on the radio who guided me in through the obscured entrance. I booked in for the night at the YHA. Tomorrow there is  a strong wind warning so have decided on a rest day tomorrow. The weather looks to be a problem for the next few days.
