Polzeath – the beach and the coastal path
Our first trip out from Coombe Mill this Easter was to Polzeath. The girls wanted to go to the beach. Polzeath is on the North Cornwall coast, only about half an hour away from the farm, so it seemed to be the logical choice. I had not been before, but Rich recalled going and parking his car down on the beach. The girls were excited to see the sea as we drove in. It didn’t take long before they were in the sand, digging around and having fun.
I have to admit that I get bored sat on a beach. Although it was sunny, there was a chilly breeze. I lay around being a bit cold and grumpy. The cold doesn’t seem to affect the girls when they get to a beach. They just love a beach so much. I think they could have spent all day here. After Rich and Freyja had explored and looked for shells we had lunch and then decided to walk around the coastal path. The girls were reluctant to go initially, but before long they were racing ahead of us.
It was definitely worth getting up on the coastal path for the views. I love the ruggedness of the North Cornish coast.
Walking around on the coastal path, we found a quieter little beach – definitely worth remembering on our next visit!
The girls were really good considering they had been taken off the beach to go for a walk. The path was fairly steep in places as we went up and down, but they didn’t really complain. They enjoyed looking at the different plants we passed, and were interested in the wild garlic when they could smell something like garlic bread in the air.
There really is nothing like a good walk in the fresh sea air, especially with such wonderful views.
