Kynance Cove is quite breathtaking and I would recommend a visit there to anyone thinking of going that way. The photos just don't do it justice. It was very, very windy, but bright, sunny and sort of hazy.
It's now owned by the National Trust and they have been looking after it for about 14 years, restoring the cafe buildings and maintaining the paths.
Here's a view from more than half way down to the beach and cafe.
Hopefully you can just make out some people standing on the beach on the right hand side, waiting for the tide to go out further.
On our way back we walked inland part of the way to look at all the plants and escape the wind a little. I saw a butterfly I did not recognise (and I think Em from Dartmoor Ramblings blog saw the same-see her latest post) and beautiful plants.
I know this is a rose but no idea what its called. It was very pretty and dotted about all over the area.
At Lizard Village we walked down to the coastal path and saw these lovely banks filled with wild flowers.
Then you start to see glimpses of the sea over peoples garden fences. It was so much fun I could have spent an hour just wandering down this path and checking out the plans in the gardens.
Now that's what I call a garden shed!
And we're still on the way down the path
And my favourite...of course!
And here we are finally at the bottom of the path and into the tiny little harbour.
I hope you've enjoyed this little tour of the very south of The Lizard. Its's got to be my longest post yet! I'm so glad we went before it got very busy in full tourist season. Oh, I nearly forgot to say we had some Roskillys Ice Cream, which was absolutely delicious.
