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. ^^
when we reached sennen cove, parked & started hiking, the sky started to become downcast though. 😦
a very pleasant hike along the southwestern coast path.
looking back at picturesque sennen cove & towards the north, cape cornwall was in the distance.
looking southwards is land’s end, the most westerly point of cornwall and england. ^^
there was a steeper short climb up mayon cliff to the mayon old coastguard lookout.
nearer to land’s end peninsula.
lots of rock formation & geology. 🙂
a relaxing walk, a bit overcast sky.
looking north to cape cornwall in the distance. 🙂
the craggy coastline to land’s end peninsula.
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.
the first & last house resting point at land’s end. 🙂
looking at land’s end & dr syntax’s head northwards from the other side.
at land’s end, we rested a while at the first & last house. 🙂
the glorious sunshine in the morning had passed, sky was overcast, foggy & photo lighting a bit low.
we walked back to sennen cove.
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!^^
