We have just had a few days away in Cornwall and mostly avoided bad weather until the last day when we drove home in torrential rain!
I thought that I would attach a map for those of you not familiar with UK geography and this one shows most of the places we visited.
We were staying just outside Helston and arrived late afternoon after visiting family also staying in the area. So the next day we drove to Lizard point - the most southerly part of England.
From there we moved on to Gunwalloe Church cove, further up the left hand side of the Lizard peninsular. It was lunchtime and we had the beach almost to ourselves!
From the beach you get a glimpse of the church which nestles behind the rocks of Castle Mound.
The church is the low building on the right and the separate Bell tower on the left is built into the rock.
St Winwaloe's was originally known as 'The Church of the Storms. There has been a church on the site since the 5th century, the current building dates from the 15th century and the bell tower from the 13th century.
And so the end of our first day - and I think of this post! I shall be back soon with part 2.
