Chapel Porth, Porthtowan and Godrevy

21 Jan

We tried to go for. a walk at low tide this lunchtime but people were queueing in the car park as everyone seemed to have the same idea on this beautiful sunny and cloudless day.

On the way down to the car park

So, off we went to Porthtowan to walk along the sand towards Chapel Porth. . Here we were thwarted by the way the winter tides had created a sandbank with a stream to be crossed to go very far.

Wonderful rock formation looking like a high-heeled platform-soled boot

Later we set off to see the sunset at Godrevy.

    We did a beach walk yesterday, Sally. Just the breath of fresh air needed to clean out the cobwebs.

      Always good to clear out the cobwebs and to breathe in the fresh sea air. 🙂

    It’s crazy how busy the car parks are on a sunny day, even at this time of year. You captured a beautiful sunset, it wasn’t that noticeable from my home. The hills often get in the way

      Yes, we have to get to the beach very early and then we can leave as it is filling up.

        Always depends on the tide times!
