The Lizard

Here are some of the photos from our trip to The Lizard on Tuesday. 
The most southerly tip of mainland Britain... 
St Winwaloe Church is on the beach near Gunwalloe.

Weather beaten grave stones.

An interesting graveyard addition!

Inside the tiny church.

The roof.

The overgrown, but interesting graves...

The Norwegian crew whose boat sank off the Cornish coast during the storms of Christmas 1915!

A German pilot who was killed in action in 1941.

One of the beaches in Church Cove...

And the other one!

The picturesque village of Gunwalloe. 

And a very nice Cornish Cream Tea!

We've had beautiful weather again today - perhaps we're finally going to have a proper Summer?

That'd be nice - we may even dig the tents out & have a few days camping!!!


Bye for now,

Kay & Sime xx

What an interesting place. Your treat looks yummy. We had rain all day, but it is supposed to be nice all week. Hope you get to use your tents.

Wow, the lizard looks beautiful! Look at those blue skies too! We're having hot weather as well - 34 degrees yesterday! phew!

Lovely photos Kay! I have a friend who lives at Cadgwith, but its years since we visited.
One of the things I was looking forward to, moving to Somerset, was its closer proximity to Cornwall.
Cant wait for our holiday in Port Isaac!
Yes I agree, we have waited a long time for summer. The festival is over, so need for any more rain LOL
Spotted girls in Sainsburies this morning, with sunburned legs, but only half way down their calves, to where their wellies were LOL

Mel - We're hoping to go camping on The Lizard, it's really lovely!

Sooz - We had a thunder storm today & it's not hot like yesterday!

Kath - Cadgwith is lovely! I bet it's a relief when the festival is over - the roads are probably thinning out now, saw some photos of the flooding there...

Nic - Have you booked your honeymoon yet? If not, think about Cornwall - there are lots of romantic places to stay!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
Cornish herringbon…
