In 2004, Kev and I decided to walk from a place called Boscastle to Tintagel on the coastal path. It was a beautiful day and we have always wanted to try it again on one of our trips over.
The coastal path goes all the way around the coast of Cornwall. Kev decided that each time we come here we should walk a portion of the path. Saturday morning Kev and I, plus Uncle Trevor, Ben, Kev's old friend and his lady Louise, walked from Morwenstow back to Crooklets Beach at Bude. It was a total 8 miles.
It was stunning.
The temperatures were warm but we were blessed with a wind that at times felt like it was going to carry us into the sea. We also passed several beaches that almost looked unreachable except by boat. The were sandwiched between high rocky cliffs that covered them like hidden jewels.
We were on a time schedule while Grandma watch the girls before she left for work, so we were pretty focused on our hike. However, we did take the time to walk out on this dicey headland. I can not explain the wind to you. I actually wanted to crawl out on all fours, but I didn't want to seem like a scardy cat to the others.
This picture is of me trying to be brave. It was more steep than it looks.
This picture is of Kev and Ben. Ben was the best man at our wedding. He and his lady are easy company. Our children love them and I think that they might run away from us to go and live with them.
This is the top of their heads while they are looking over the edge of the headland....In case you can't tell it is long way down. I didn't look over the edge.
This picture was to demonstrate the wind. This bit of cliff was one of the higher points and the wind was insane...pictures don't do it justice.
Maybe before we retire we'll make it all the was around the coast.
Grace and Peace
By the way, I believe this is the first post in about 3 1/2 years that does not contain one picture of my sweetlings. Just thought I would make a record of that.
