The weather was in a quandary. Should it rain, dabble in sunshine or be dark and menacing?
Whatever the weather we decided to go for a walk and headed for Carlyon Bay golf course. Not to play though, as I agree with Mark Twain who said, "Golf is a good walk spoiled." I guess I should apologise to any golfers!
Alongside the golf course, overlooking the sea, there is a public footpath with some lovely views. You have to be aware of any stray golf balls, of course.
With the golf course stretched out before us it turned quite dark with a few drops of rain.
Clouds formed as we walked.
We decided to keep walking and visited Spit Beach. From here it is also possible to carry on walking to Par Beach - though the footpath is a bit grotty. The sun did its best to shine.
For a brief moment Spit Beach looked great, with blue-green sea lapping the shore.
We decided to retrace our steps alongside the golf course. Dark clouds built up once more.
The clouds appeared to be almost hovering above the horizon.
With Carlyon Bay beach in view we are nearly back to where we started.
To walk along the side of the golf course park in the Carlyon Bay beach car park. It's a bit bumpy but is often free out of the tourist season. Walk down the hill a short way and on the left is a Public Footpath sign, follow this to where we started our walk. Note that the path can get a bit muddy following heavy rain.
