Porthgwarra Cove as we walk towards the path that goes up onto Gwennap Head
Looking down as we climb up the steps out of the cove
Such a lovely area
The rugged coast leading to Porthcurno around the headland
The camera was able to focus on the big car carrier and behind it is St Mary's IOS
Looking over the headlands to The Lands End Visitor Centre
One of the two conical markers up on Gwennap Head - like many people I'm sure we always assumed they were to do with plane navigation - but no !
"When at sea the black and white one should always be kept in sight in order to avoid the submerged rocks nearer the shore. If the black and white cone is completely obscured by the red cone then the vessel would be directly on top of the Runnel Stone. The black and white landmark was erected by the Corporation of Trinity House in 1821"
