LIZARD POINT : ENGLANDS MOST SOUTHERLY POINT.


The path above  is leading us to Lizard Point on Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula. This is the most southerly point in England.


The flowers make a colourful contrast to the sea. We were soon at our destination.


There are lovely views, 
as the next three photos show







Nearby is the Lizard lighthouse and Heritage Centre. Unfortunately both were closed.



On another walk, the next day, the weather  began to change.



Still in view though was the Heritage Centre



As we reached Housel Bay it started to rain, but the Heritage Centre was still in view





We passed the Housel Bay Hotel, which has fine views of the  the bay, and made our way to find somewhere for lunch




All in all there are lots to see on Cornwall's  Lizard Peninsula

WALKING FROM LIZARD VILLAGE, CORNWALL

Parking your car is a bit different when visiting Cornwall's Lizard Village. You park on the village green. As you can see below it has been this way for a long time. There is still a  parking charge (£3.50) but the money goes into  an honesty box. 


The village is a good place to start a walk, as there are many options. We wandered off with no destination or in mind.


I wondered what it would be like to live surrounded by greenery and  a with a view of the sea.



We found our selves on the Old Lizard Head.


What a lovely spot to sit and contemplate life.


I guess it would be a bit different on a blustery,  rainy day though.


Onward, and a flight of steps to contend with.


Another lovely view with the the coastal path in sight.


There's a cafe overlooking the sea, most unexpected. We had a coffee enjoying the blueness of the sky and sea.


We joined the coastal path again.


Downhill now for a change.


We headed back towards where we started


An enjoyable walk, though more luck than judgement. Good to see the hedgerows full of colour

WALKING TO THE LOVELY KYNANCE COVE, CORNWALL

 


Following on from my previous post, we are still on Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula. This time Visiting Kynance Cove, which is signposted on the A3083



The cove is a walk from the car park. The photo below shows the cove's cafe and it can be seen that it's a bit of a downward stretch from where the cars are parked.



There is  wheelchair access to the cafe. - no! not the route shown below!



We wandered towards the cove. It was a lovely sunshine day.


At last the sea comes into view, famed for its colour and white sand.


More sea and sand below.


The cafe is now in view. We had a coffee!



The next five photos are of the sea and beaches.











There was some work being carried out on the cliffs, presumably for safety reasons.


All in all  the visit to Kynance Cove was an  interesting walk and well worth the effort - and the sky stayed blue, as did the sea.

Thanks for visiting my blog ~ Mike.

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 ...
