We were down in Cornwall for the first week of the month and took some time off from personal stuff to take in a few local beaches. It wasn't the weather for swimming, unless you own a wetsuit and a surfboard, which I most definitely do not, so picture taking was the order of the day (and cups of hot tea and pasties in little cafés of course). Anyway, I thought I'd share a few Cornish beaches here because how can you ever have enough pics of the Atlantic in all its moods? As always 'click' for a much bigger and better view of the pics.
First up, the St. Agnes life saving club (we think) was having a practice.
And a lovely Golden Lab was having so much fun.
The beach and village of Porthtowan from the hill.
Storm clouds at The Lizard.
The lovely beach and village of Coverack on The Lizard peninsula.
Porthleven next. This is the church in the iconic 'stormy Cornwall' pic you see so often, with the massive waves washing over the top of it. But not that day...
On our last day in Cornwall we just had to go to Cape Cornwall. We always do it, I don't know why, family roots and memories I suspect.
And lastly, from Cape Cornwall Sennen Cove is but a 15 minute drive.
Looking back at The Cape from Sennen.
From these photos it looks like the weather was lovely all week. It wasn't, it was rough and stormy and wet a lot of the time, we just picked our moments to get out, mainly the mornings, and spent wet afternoons mooching or with family.
