after a wonderful hike at porthgwara, we rested at porthgwara cove cafe & enjoyed some crnish cream tea. ^^

actually i was less than enthused.

this cornish cream tea/devonshire cream tea thingy is just scones & clotted cream. when i read up, they say in america the fat content of clotted cream will make it by definition butter!

it was already nearing 2pm. the weather was holding out. we were uncertain if the glorious sunshine would continue, so we decided to drive on to sennen cove and hike to land’s end. ^^

on the way we stopped by for a very cheap but mediocre (i guess not much to complain about) £5 cod & chips at a pub. 🙂

when we reached sennen cove, parked & started hiking, the sky started to become downcast though. 😦

we could see land’s end, dr syntax’s head on peel point further out to sea & dr johnson’s head.

we did not venture for a closer look, but apparently there a rock formation that looked exactly like a head with a protruding chin, and somehow named after a fictional headmaster.

it was a very nice hike even though we could not keep the sunshine.

we had a coffee & shared some bites. after that we drove back & was happy to be back at our very nice glencree house b&b. 🙂

glencree house proprietor booked tolcarn inn at newlyn for us. having rested, we drove a short distance to newlyn & had a really great fish dinner at tolcarne inn!^^
