(IV) Cornwall Adventure – Kynance Cove

Our first view of Kynance Cove. Stunning.

Leanne on the edge!

I think this photo does a nice job at showing the sheer scale of the rocks/cliffs/mini islands in the background.

The landscape is nothing like what we have in Upminster where I live, it looks alien. I think the photo below looks like it could have been taken on another planet.

Yellow Rock
One of my favourite photos of the whole holiday. Beautiful landscape.
House with a viewThe rocks were really interesting. The sea was really rough and you didn’t have to look at it to tell. The rocks were all carved and sliced up, most of them jutting upwards in layers. They also had a red tinge to them which made them interesting as a texture.

Standing on the edge of these jutting rocks next to a sea that was in turmoil maybe wasn’t the best idea but I wanted to get interesting photos! Needless to say this shot shows the moment I got wet. My luck run out, I was on the edge taking photos for a while and the past two times I had kept my eye on the sea and managed to spot when a big wave was coming twice before (not so easy when you have to spot a bigger bump of water than the rest as I was a bit further out than the beach) and managed to hightail it out of there, quickly jumping across the jutting rocks as best I could. However this one got me and I had to walk around for the rest of the trip with wet feet/socks/boots, not very nice! Just as I took this photo I ducked down and held onto a rock just incase it was a really big wave (did not want to be dragged on and into that sea, pretty sure you wouldn’t stand a chance) but it wasn’t too bad, albeit cold and wet!

Another beautiful place in Kynance Cove. The sea coming from both sides of this beach area that you couldn’t get to.

Next we visited Lizard Point,  the most southerly place in England. It was by far the most disappointing place that we went to all holiday. The most southerly point consisted of an eye sore of a gift shop and then down by the sea and even bigger eye sore of a broken down and disused concrete jetty. Usually I like abandoned places and things but not this. It was disappointing that because it is the most southerly place they tried to capitalize on that or… once did, now it’s just sad.

We also found the most southerly lighthouse which might have been a little bit more interesting if it was open or you could get near it, the stone wall was easily jumpable but we had lost interest in the whole place by then, disappointed by it all. Two saving graces however, when we was walking up hill on the edge of the cliffs to see the lighthouse we saw an eagle on the cliffs not far from us which we saw took flight. The second being the one and only photo I shot at Lizard Point, part of the lighthouse buildings.
