Newquay - final walk

Today a short ride to Cwmtydu - a tiny small cove - which Dylan Thomas gives mention to in his Under Milkwood - the River Dewi flows into the sea here - Cwmtydu was a favourite haunt of Eli Jenkins a character in the play.

Has we climbed up out of the cove we spotted a head of a seal playing in the cove and then he was gone - today was glorious after the rain the night before - the sea and sky were blue and boats were out sailing also boats were coming round the bay with sightseerers doing it the easy way - but what they missed - nature at its best - the soft bright green grass - dotted with so many spring flowers - today we saw wild orchids - an amazing sight - not just one but lots and Spring Squill carpeted the cliff side with scabious - thrift and ragged robin - a return walk and another pub lunch and a final trip down into Newquay to see the sun go down.
