The Lizard - Cornwall


We found a nice peaceful campsite right next to Kynance Cove, which has always been a favourite beach of mine. In the morning we had a little trip to Cadgwith Cove, where we had a rather fine cream tea for breakfast.


Nipper ran so fast down the pathway to the cove, with sandals flying off every two seconds.




a proper fishing cove, with fish guts and all!







later that day, I pretended to be a donkey and climb down the hill to Kynance Cove with a small human attached to me.


the tide was up when we arrived (there is a nice unusual beach around the corner at low tide) but it gave us enough time for a spot of lunch and a cup of tea.



finally , after the nipper played endlessly with sand and her shovel, and scaled vertical rocky cliffs, we waded through the fairly choppy sea to the other side.


I think she thought she'd arrived in some kind of toddler heaven.




we swam, we explored caves and pools, and nipper covered herself in nectarine juice.





then a rather hefty hike back to our home.


and a certain someone's new vehicle.
