Cornish Coast

Summer Tour to Cornwall 2013

We've been in the West Country for a couple of weeks now- it seems like for ages!

The weather has largely determined activities and we have been on the local St.Ives Porthmeor beach for swimming and body boarding; I have done a couple of walks (one by myself and the second with Dan) and we had a trip out to Land's End.

There has been one horrendous storm and the tent held up well. [There was localised flooding.] Today the sun is out and we are to Godfrey surfing beach!

Here are a selection of photos.

Much of the coastal headlands are owned by the National Trust

The strong winds make outside washing up fun!
Out walking – to Gurnard's Head

Gurnard's Head is the further headland

Exceptional views
More rocky outcrops!
Dan looks west – 'how far are we going?'
