South and West to Cornwall – Part 4   4 comments

A tribute post to the lovely TBF on her Birthday. She was in control of the days activities and kicked off with a bit of body boarding at Harlyn Bay

Me a TJF took a walk along the beach while she played

To be honest the waves were pretty rubbish all week due to the northerly wind as most of the beaches face west. Harlyn Bay however faces north so whilst there wasn’t much natural swell the wind had at least whipped up a bit of surf

I took a load of photos to show TBF in action as a special birthday treat

Lunch was a special request for a cream tea and scones at the very nice Berryfields Farm. The afternoon was a coastal walk from  Harlyn Bay again (we had a car park ticket for the day, there’s always room for some frugality even on a Birthday)

The weather was gloriously clear and the water looked invitingly clear – apart from the fact it was still cold and windy!

We were heading for Trevone Bay just around the coast. It has another one of those semi-natural rock swimming pools. A little deeper and smaller than the one at Treyaron. If we’d had swimming stuff with us we’d probably had taken a dip

We wandered down the beach to the watch people trying to make the most of the non-existent waves and then up onto the coast path to look at the Trevone Round Hole, a collapsed sea cave where you can scramble down and through the cave onto the rocks.

Looked a little precarious to me and that’s saying something for a man with precious little sense of danger

The day was finished off with a meal at The View restaurant in St Merryn and very fine it was too. Oh, and another sunset
