THE MAGICAL CHURCH COVE ON THE LIZARD PENINSULA, CORNWALL.


We are still on Cornwall's  Lizard Peninsula, this time heading for Church Cove.


Straight away I felt that the Church Cove area was something special. It felt familiar, as if I'd been before, which I hadn't.



Though the weather was changeable, the sea was blue and the thatched roofs were good to see. 






There was a sheep walking up and down a garden as if she owned the place. She did though stop so I could take a quick photo.



A wonky window and something about a stroll along the prom - not that there is a prom at Church Cove of course.


The sea and cliffs.






We sat for quite a while just looking at the cliffs and rock formations. We probably only saw five other people.




There seemed to be all sorts of pictures and patterns in the cliffs below.


There are three stone holiday cottages.


There's a slipway to reach the sea. We spoke to a couple in one of the holiday cottages. They recommended swimming in the sea early in the morning - even though the water is very cold!





Now a few random photos from the Church Cove area.






I enjoyed our visit to Church Cove. All was peaceful with a touch of magic in the air.



P.S. To get to the cove we parked at Lizard Village, where you can park on the village green. From there we walked to the cove following the road signs.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
All good wishes ~ Mike.

  2. I saw the movie 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' at the cinema the other day Mike and thought of you and your travel blog.
    Good to see you are still journeying/journaling on.

    1. Strangely we had never been to Church Cove previously so it was a special walk. Loved the views.

A QUICK GLANCE AT FOWEY, CORNWALL.

  We had to make a short visit to Fowey so I snapped a few quick photos as we walked. The first two are views on the way from the Fowey car ...
