Day 138 – Beware Incoming Tide…

Kynance Cove, like many in Cornwall, has beautiful sandy beaches exposed at low tide. As the tide comes in though, parts of the beach are cut off, and people getting stranded and needing rescuing is a common occurrence.

Day 137 – Long Gone…

The Wheal Prosper Mine At Rinsey Head in Cornwall was not hugely successful – it was only worked from 1860-1866 before being abandoned. Only the ruins remain…

Day 134 – Art & Sculpture…

One of our objectives for our trip to Cornwall was to visit St Ives – home of both Tate Modern St Ives, and the Barbara Hepworth sculpture garden. The garden was inspirational, and the gallery challenging, but this piece on display in the gallery really resonated with me…

Day 132 – Defying Gravity…

Tonight’s outing was to the Minack Theatre near Land’s End. An amazing venue, carved out of the side of a cliff and hosting everything from music concerts to Shakespeare, it was conceived and largely built by Rowena Cade and her gardener from 1930 onwards. The performance tonight was by ‘Gravity’ – a rock/indie band based locally. Even though the day had been warm, it was far from warm when the sun went down! A magical experience nevertheless…

Day 130 – In The Pink…

Ignoring the forecast of rain, we walked a section of the South West Coastal Path in Cornwall today. Such beautiful scenery, enhanced by a colourful display of spring flowers, including this Pink Thrift. A nice walk, good friends, and a good pub for lunch – what’s not to like?
