More of the spectacular Bedruthan Steps, Cornwall; legend has it that Bedruthan was a mythological giant who used the five rock stacks along the beach as stepping stones. My legs are slightly shorter, so I used the coastal path.

Mission accomplished: Westward Ho! to Newquay Airport, 7 days, 100 miles. It's been a fantastic challenge, very tough in places, with mucho tears, laughter, singing out loud and a lot of talking to myself, all with the beautiful coastal scenery as my constant and long-suffering companion. In short, a real tonic. And now, I can't wait to get home to my @wildandreas. Oh, and finally, should anyone find the several kilos I lost somewhere along the path, they can keep them!! #swcp #southwestcoastpath #walk #hike #challenge #missionaccomplished #cominghome

More magical trees along the path.

Day 7: Harlyn Bay to Mawgan Porth and then off the path and inland to Newquay Airport; yesterday and today's walk has passed above and along many stunning beaches, where on a sunny day the sand and turquoise water (which, when I swam in it yesterday, was actually warmer than that of Mykonos in June!) rival any I've come across in the Med. This beauty is Polzeath.

Doyden Castle, a gothic folly built in 1827 and now one of the @nationaltrust's stunningly located properties that you can rent out. Next time, when I return with @wildandreas, I might just do that!

The peaceful harbour of Port Quin, which I came across 3 miles after leaving Port Isaac, where I literally walked past Martin Clunes on the set of Doc Martin, proudly holding up filming as I went!

Day 6 - Port Isaac to Harlyn Bay: from the worst day of the walk to the best; beautiful sunshine, blue skies, a cooling breeze and views like this around every bluff. Life is good.

In the memorable words of HM The Queen, today's walk, from Tintagel to Port Isaac, "is not one I shall look back upon with undiluted pleasure". Au contraire, it was heavily diluted with an incessant, driving, all-permeating rain, along with an accompanying wind, which, had it not been coming off the ocean, would have almost certainly blown me into it on more than one occasion. Gorse carpets most of the cliff top along this stretch of coast and much of it is shrouded with densely spun networks of spider webs, constructed horizontally and very effectively using the shrub's thorniness as an anchor against the harsh elements. Collecting heavy raindrops, this particular example was the most beautiful thing I saw on a sadly very unphotogenic day!

Tonight, for only the second time in my life, I am staying at a Youth Hostel, principally because of its remote position perched on the edge of a cliff with nothing out front but the ocean and, as it's turned out, this rather lovely sunset; my first experience of a YH was 37 years ago, when I was 11. That was also the first and pretty much last time I kissed a girl. I have no plans to do any kissing tonight.
