Smugglers’ Cove?

image

Another photo taken along the beautiful South West Coast Path near Tintagel in Cornwall. There appears to be what looks like a man-made entrance part way up and into the cliffs from this bay which was pretty much secluded.  There seemed to be some brave souls who climbed down the cliffside to get on the beach but without knowing the area I wasn’t brave enough to try.

Cross

Close-up of a cross in the churchyard at Tintagel. There were some lovely celtic crosses there and the carvings were superb. With the cliff top setting the carvings had been subjected to lots of weather and in my opinion were all the better for it.

Cuckoo Pint

I love the brightness of this cuckoo pint (alternatively Wild Arum or Lords and Ladies) amongst the undergrowth. It shouts “look at me” and is an early sign that autumn is already on its way.

Sloes

The sloes are almost ready to pick and are looking good! Not sure I’ll have time to pick any this year but if I do, then sloe gin for Christmas it is!

Sea View

Another scene from walking along the South West Coast path. This particular view is down towards Bossiney Haven where the dog was delighted to be allowed free range on the beach. The varieties of plant life here too were extremely varied and beautiful.
