A summer snap looking towards Perranuthnoe and Penzance

Looking back towards Perranuthnoe from the coastal footpath

This morning I thought I’d brighten the morning by sharing a summer snap taken on a walk from here at Ednovean farm when we walked along the coastal footpath east of Perranuthnoe. The last photos I shared were taken way back in April so I thought I was time for an update!

We walked along to Stackhouse Cove with a picnic the other day on Charles’s birthday – it is just so relaxing to sit on a silent cove and listen to the sea.  Of course there was a short swim (brrr!) to our chosen beach but it was a wonderfully relaxing way to spend the afternoon.

I only really took one photo that day, on the walk out along the coast but I always pause to look back over Mounts Bay at the sweep of beaches and the Penzance beyond St Michael’s Mount but I thought it might brighten up the day today!

As you can see Perranuthnoe’s own sandy beach was quite busy of course, tucked in the shelter of the two headlands and the beach you can see nearest to the camera is Trenow but we climbed up again over a little granite reach before dropping down to a peaceful secluded cove under the shelter of Cudden point.

So I’ll leave you with a larger version of my snap of summers day in Cornwall with the memory of the sun playing on the distant hills way beyond Penzance, the Mount floating in the clear water, the bustle of families on Perranuthnoe’s sandy beach and the isolated pebbly coves filled with peaceful silence!

Diary of a Summer’s day

This weekend we had such glorious weather that we walked again to our favorite spot tucked under the shelter of Cudden point and so I’d like to start the week with a quick diary of of my summers snaps. As always within walking distance of Ednovean Farm of course! If you remember I mentioned Stackhouse Cove in my blog about the smugglers of Prussia Cove. They were perfectly concealed by Cudden Point from the excise men in Penzance and it is rumoured that a tunnel leads from one of these cave to Acton Castle above!
