Walking around Padstow

Padstow is fantastic for walking all year round there is always something new to see and marvel at it is a little piece of paradise!

I love this digger parked on the edge of the Camel Estuary in Padstow right at the beginning of the Camel Trail, it was there for ages unattended, my grandson loved it and wanted to get up into the cab!

A walk through Padstow up past the War Memorial and beyond towards Stepper Point and Hawker’s Cove is an amazing scenic feast, look back over Padstow and Rock and the stunning Camel Estuary, these beautiful wild flowers were such a pretty sight!

Rick Stein’s baked lemon cheesecake

Rick Stein’s Baked Lemon Cheesecake

Rick Stein’s cheesecake recipe for July is on his website www.rickstein.com I haven’t made this yet but can’t wait to do so! My own recipe for a delicious, foolproof cheesecake will be on my next Padstow blog in August.

As I previously wrote on my blogs we have eaten at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and the café in Padstow, and enjoyed the food, ambience and service and would definitely recommend them both. Also we have bought delicious jars of jam and chutney from Rick Stein’s deli in Padstow, my favourite jar of jam is the blackcurrant one, spread the jam on a slice of delicious wholemeal bread from The Chough Bakery (on Padstow harbour) and savour every mouthful!
