Coastal adventures

September28

We left Falmouth late morning and headed west towards the end of Cornwall. Our first stop was the beach at Cot Valley, famous for its huge pebbles.

That little red dot in the photo above is Keith setting up his equipment to get some cool shots of the beach. These pebbles make you feel as though you are at a beach in the Land of the Giants or somewhere!

As we all took the time to get some interesting photos, we saw several groups of hikers on the coastal walk. Too energetic for me!!

After lunch we headed further round the coast to Cape Cornwall where we got a clearer view of Land’s End and the two lighthouses between there and the Scilly Islands.

While I wasn’t brave (or fit!) enough to climb the hill to see the view from the top of the Cape, I did go into the field where the ruins of St Helen’s Oratory were being guarded by a small herd of Highland Cattle.

We headed back to Falmouth after a quick stop at Pendeen Lighthouse

With thanks to Keith and Karen for some of these photos.
