Week 3: Padstow to St Ives 'On the Path' Day 19

St Agnes Beacon to Portreath

2 miles walked
300 ft of ascent
Word of the day: Stormy

Rough night with very strong winds and heavy rain. Walked down to Chapel Porth where we saw the first surfer and some very good waves (Chapel Porth is known as Badlands by the surfing fraternity).
A break in the weather encouraged us to take the tent down and start walking - it started raining again as soon as we left the campsite. Walked to Porthtowan and nearly got blown inside out. After a couple of hours waiting for weather to improve we gave up and bussed it to Portreath and stayed at the Portreath Arms.
