We had envisaged a walk along the Cornish coastal path, but it looked so very muddy after all of the recent rain. Instead we headed for Hallane Cove - photo as above.
Our route first went through the hamlet of Trenarren and its quaint cottages. Note the red Royal Mail post box and the five mph speed limit signs on the corner of the first cottage.
A white cat was observing passers by, though he didn't move about very much.
A pleasant property all neat and tidy.
Then there is an uphill path to follow.
Of course what goes up usually also goes down.
We carried along the path until we reached our destination of Hallane Cove. Note the waterfall spilling into the incoming tide.
The beach is somewhat stoney but had the attraction of being quiet and peaceful. We hadn't seen anyone else on our walk.
A different photo of the waterfall, must be fun on a sunshine day.
And here's another pic of the beach.
To leave the cove there are a few steps to navigate.
There is also a wooden seat to enjoy the views.
Spotted some snowdrops on our return journey.
Back at Trenarren hamlet a few early flowers as the road starts to rise.
Two similar cottages on our return journey.
A pleasant easy walk. I guess the only problem can be finding somewhere to park a car. Just outside of the hamlet there is parking for about seven or eight cars.
The road leading to the parking spot is very narrow in places. It's best to have your fingers crossed so that you avoid meeting a car travelling the opposite way - well it sometimes works
Finally, to end today's post, a reminder of the storms we had last week in Cornwall. Nearby to where I live a tree fell and took with it the electric power lines - so it was back to using candles! A few photos.
That's it for this week. All good wishes ~ Mike.
