Week 3: Padstow to St Ives 'On the Path' Day 21

Hayle to St Ives

7 miles
663 ft of ascent
Word of the day: Rooftops

Wind finally dropped over night.
Walked into Hayle for bacon sandwich, then on around estuary to Lelant. Nearly killed by a car on the road near St Erth. Stopped at the viewpoint before Carbis Bay and at the old Huer's hut just before St Ives. Apparently they used to do a lot of shouting - hence "hue and cry".

After taking this photo of the view from the Huer's Hut we noticed that we had captured this bird with outstretched wings.

St Ives was full of tourists but still as charming as ever - the view of the rooftops from the Tate Cafe is one of my favourites. Thanks to Ali Roscoe, who I worked with in art education quite a few years ago, for our tickets to the Tate.
Caught the train home; I can't believe that is 3 weeks done - we will be going round the pointy bit on the next leg!
