England: Cornwall

Roadtrip To South Cornwall (Day Two)

May 20, 2011

Road trip to Cornwall
Vintage beauty

For a quick recap, a few weeks ago

we spent a long weekend in Cornwall,

the most western county in England

I almost maxed out my camera’s memory card

for it only holds 500 photos

and I took 450!

Kynance Cove

Kynance Cove was our first destination on our second day

complete with picnic tables

(or as Yogi Bear would say, ‘Pic-a-nic’)

Kynance Cove

The color of the water was stunning

and I love the peek of the Cornwall countryside

through the rock formations

The kids loved climbing about

and gathering little treasures from nature

As with everywhere we visited in Cornwall,

there were lots of winding footpaths to explore

Next stop was the Lizard Lighthouse

which marks mainland Britain’s most southerly point

Famous for its numerous shipwrecks

off its often foggy, rocky point

Lizard Point

We walked over to this little cliffy area

to grab a Cornish Pasty

And then drove to

the dreamyland of

Cadgwith

{aah}

Cadgwith

I know, can you stand it?!

Cadgwith

A charming little fishing village

Feeding leftovers to seagulls

A few boats still catch lobster, crab, and a few other local fish

Cadgwith

There is absolutely nothing to do here

but take photos

and look around for you breath

for the views stole it…

 

Cadgwith

We saw a few of these

little ‘over the gate’ stands

selling honey & eggs

I can’t make this stuff up!

If you can’t find me one day,

I’ve probably locked myself in one of the cottages

And I am not coming out!

Currently I am reading a fiction book

‘The Forgotten Garden’ by Kate Morton

It takes place (so far) in Australia, London and Cornwall

Not a new book (published in 2008)

but if you are looking for a good read and a little piece of Cornwall

 you might want to pick this one up

So far it is a great book,

and I’ve been told it has a fantastic ending
