Walking Along Spit Beach, Cornwall
Another walk along a beach - and without seeing anyone else. This is Spit Beach but, as I have said on a previous post, this is far from being my favourite. In saying that it was a sunny, blue sky March day so we felt quite happy on the beach and looking over the rocks and pools.
The tide was out so we could reach parts not normally seen at high tide.
Lots of rock pools but I didn't find anything particularly interesting - though the sun dazzled the water in the photo below.
Some cliffs ...
… and yet more cliffs. I think that the cliff below looks somewhat like a lion's head - or maybe not!
An archway in the cliffs to run through if so inclined - walking is also allowed.
Finally we retrace our steps back along the beach. Still nobody else about.
A view looking over the beach to the Carlyon Bay Golf Course. Not a golfer in sight, of course, because of the coronavirus.
At this end of the beach there is an old World War 2 lookout building. It's in poor repair and even the graffiti is poor!
Walking back to the car we pass the golf course.
