Sunday, June 8

This would be our last day in Cornwall, since Monday would be completly occupied in transporting us back the Heathrow. We began with a bus ride along the North Coast on our way to Tintagel. The villaage is near a headland high above the sea that was formerly directly connected to the mainland but is now separated by an eroded saddle. We had to take a Range Rover ride down to the lower level before we began a climb up to the remains of a 12th C. Castle. As we did we looked down on Tintagel Cove.

It was a steep climb, in part a series of steps, and even after getting to the castle we had a further climb to the top of the headland. The view was worth it but there was no sign of Arthur.

After that we went by bus to the small fishing village of Boscastle, just east o f Tintagel. this was very picturesque but I think by that time we were all beginning to wear out a little. After strolling around with the Sunday crowd of tourists we were back on the bus for a long ride back to Newquay.

When we got there we had time to take a walk from the hotel to the gazebo, or folly, that was on the headland east of the hotel. At least Barbara got all the way as I gave in to my knees. The hardier members of the group had gotten off the bus about 2 (more?) miles to the west and took the coast walk back to the hotel. Then we all fell to a final dinner and packing.
