October’s blue seas in Cornwall

Blue seas in Mounts bay from the coastal footpath

Mounts Bay yesterday with the bluest of seas and St Michael’s Mount as the pearl

We followed the bluest of seas along the coastal path yesterday – Mounts bay looked so enchanting that we couldn’t help but pause and just look out over the bay with a view that stretched from Perranuthnoe all the way to Penzance across the tranquil water.

St Michael’s Mount is always the pearl in Mounts Bay’s crown and never more so than yesterday so I thought I’d post a few extra photos taken on our coastal walk in Cornwall.

We walked eastwards from Ednovean farm along the coast towards Cudden Point and as always, we settled down for a picnic on our favourite secluded cove tucked under the shelter of Cudden Point. The sea had retreated so far yesterday, borne on the full moon’s spring tide that it was merely a whisper in the distance as we sat on a beach had been swept clean by the morning’s seas.

At last, the time came to walk home, lazily following the dry path over the shale outcrop of a headland back towards Perranuthnoe but just before we turned up through the gorse towards Trebarvah we stopped to watch the seals lounging in a sheltered Zawn, plump from the summer of feeding in the clear water. One last memory of a beautiful autumn day in Cornwall.
