Cornwall, Kynance cove

And so our Cornwal road trip continued, heading South towards the Lizard peninsular and Kynance cove. we had a good few hours at the cove pottering about, fine drizzle set in as we left the car, but soon blew through. This turned out to be a warning of what was to come. Its quite a steep clime down to the cove, and thoughts were already running through my mind, as to the hard work my old legs would hve to put in to get me back to the car. Also at this point another warning of things to come, as the wind started to blow a gale (literally) , also not much on the birding front, apart from gulls.

Looking down into the cove from the beach cafe.



Looking East from the beach.



Looking West.

This time with part of the Lizard in the distance, and visibility beginning to deteriorate.

Herring gull.

one of the rock channels through which the sea pours onto the beach.

One of the many rock island close to the beach, amd the wind is really kicking in at this point.

The sea only needed to hit a submerged rock , and a huge fountain would appear only to be wipped away by the wind.

Herring gull.
We left the cove and the peninsular area and headed for our next port of call , and a bad end to the day. all will be revealed in the next post.

  2. Those rough waters and rocks remind me of the Pacific Ocean near our home in Oregon... I like that kind of ocean scenery (those fountains")
    and the calm seas we have here in Florida (Atlantic or Caribbean) kind of bore me.
