Kynance Cove to The Lizard holiday walk

 I've finally got round to posting some of the photos we took while on one of our walks from our recent holiday cottage break.  The day these photos were taken were on our actual wedding anniversary and while it started out as quite overcast it ended up being hot and sunny.

The first few photos were taken while we sat and enjoyed tea and cakes.  We saw some little birds looking for crumbs and a couple of artists at work.

The lovely colours of the rock were amazing and Max enjoyed the rock climbing.

We stopped off at a lovely cafe shop and as the sun had decided to come out we were able to sit outside and have our lunch.  Again another little bird came along to see what was on the menu.

This Victorian lifeboat house at Polpear Cove is no longer in use but was where rescuers saved the lives of 167 people when the liner SS Suevic sunk in 1907

Further round the coastal path is The Lizard lighthouse.

 As we walked further along we passed the Lizard Wireless station which houses in two wooden huts.  This is the oldest surviving, purpose-built wireless station in the world used by Marconi for pioneering experiments.

 So many beautiful views to take photos from - the views were beautiful.

Back at the cottage I was able to sit out in the sunshine and do some cross stitching.  This feathered friend used to come up to the french doors of our cottage at the same time every evening - I think probably hoping that we would feed him.

Hello Linda and thanks for popping by to say hello to me. Your trip looks/sounds lovely. We should have been in Cornwall this week. We cancelled our trip when my knee was at its worse. The owners of the accommodation we were going tower very kind and said they would keep our deposit against another booking when we were ready. We were also due to have paid the balance and they waived that. We have stayed there twice before and love it. Hope to re arrange our trip soon. Anne x
