Wooster saying "good morning world"
 Super day for a trip to Scilly
Jim's view of the village - and his field ! 
We decided it was time for a day out as it was such a wonderful day, so off we went through Helston and down The Lizard to Kynance Cove
 First live Caterpillar of the year
We walk the longer route up and around the back of the cove and arrive above it 
Super views from up there 
Tide still fairly well in and sadly the sand has not returned higher up the beach
 Looking down to the very busy cafe above the beach from this amazing vantage point 
The roof of The Cafe and little cottage is entirely photo-voltaic cells to generate power for the cafe and toilets - which are so Eco-friendly everything is digested, flows through a UV and pure water comes out the other end ! !
We were sitting in the cafe garden and above were people peeking over from our vantage point earlier 
Ships passing closer as they are about to pass Lizard Point 
I had a lovely Tuna sandwich, Jim started with a brownie, but wasn't keen and having seen my sandwich- which looked and smelled super, he went back and had his first Crab sandwich of 2017 
In the past as dogs are banned here after Easter we usually walk onto the coastal footpath which climbs the side of the hill - unfortunately due to the low sand level it meant a scramble up  rocks and apart from Wooster I think we might all have struggled
 There used to be an easier route but it is blocked off, so off we went back the way we came - looking for the footpath that crosses the stream further up
Volunteers  doing some hard labour
Found it 
Looking back to the car park - doing well at £4.00 per car - unless you're NT members like us - sadly the National Trust have demolished the car park toilets - but not managed to get the new ones finished in time for Easter - so the poor folk who either couldn't walk down or didn't want to - had no access to any facilities
Very dry up on the heathland - these Tadpoles were in a shrinking bit of water 
Bit breezy up there, but the view is wonderful 

That was always our favourite part of the Cove 
Bit more sand now 

Dogs enjoying a drink and a paddle on the way back 
Oh dear - gather that you are going to have to pay all year round here - NT members will have to scan their cards and get a ticket 
A snatched shot through the windscreen of the SAR Sea king that stands by the road in a corner of RNAS Culdrose
So many memories of these at work
