Come in, the water is lovely…

The last time I was here it was a very different story – A and I got totally soaked! I had to take my car in to the VW garage in Helston yesterday (an intermittent fault starting the engine) and seeing I was:

  • already more than half way to the Lizard Point
  • it was still only 10:30 am
  • it was a low tide
  • the sun was shining

although a little hazy, the sun was trying to break through and the temperature was rising so I decided to take a drive down to Kynance Cove, not intending to go all the way down onto the beach, but to take some photos of the views and the coastal flora.Β  I also wanted to visit a garden down on the Lizard, which I have been meaning to for the last three summers!

So although the car investigation cost me a whopping Β£90 (no parts, just labour for cleaning some connections and running diagnostics!) it was a perfect day. Hot, sunny, though still somewhat hazy on the coast and I even found coffee and walnut cake at the garden. Sorry I ate it before thinking of taking a photo. Maybe if the weather holds I will return to the beach with my cozzie and actually have a dip. It did look soooo enticing.


  1. That looks very enticing indeed, Jude. I hope you do make it back, but at least you got a stunning photo and walnut cake!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I got lots of stunning photos Cathy. Enough for a photo post for you I think πŸ™‚

      1. Good, Jude. Can’t wait to see them!! πŸ™‚

  2. Ali says:

    Oh my goodness that is a wonderful photo! I don’t think I have enough turquoise in my life. Your morning sounds wonderful (apart from the bill). Yes, I dare you to swim next time.

    1. Heyjude says:

      If I get another day like yesterday before the schools break up I will give it a go! Maybe. πŸ˜‰

  3. The colours are glorious, from the blue of the water to those yellow rocks. What a wonderful way to spend a day.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I don’t get to the beaches as often as I should, but then I do like the peace and quiet (well when the cattle stop performing) of the countryside and the garden keeps me busy. Saying that I might try somewhere new tomorrow, before the threatened rain on Thursday.

  4. Pete Hillman says:

    It looks really enticing! Beautiful shot, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pete, the views were stunning yesterday in the sun.

  5. The colours are stunning – nothing much beats Cornwall on a sunny day. Now, before I allow my mouth to water too much – did you have a piece of cake which was coffee and walnut, or did you have coffee and a piece of walnut cake? I like the sound of walnut cake, but a coffee and walnut cake is a great favourite. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Coffee and walnut cake and juice. I can’t resist.

      1. Now my mouth is watering at full flow – although I might swap the juice for a cup of tea. πŸ™‚

        1. Heyjude says:

          There is tea too – make it yourself though and pop the money in the honesty box!

        2. It sounds like a lovely place – I like when there are honesty boxes.

    Ahh it’s very pretty Jude and I’d paddle but that’s all!

  7. Gorgeous image, Jude. I remarked today to hubby on the beautiful shade of blue here in St Ives. Very inviting indeed, but I saw that even the teenagers were wearing wet suits. Don’t think I’ll be going for a paddle this time around. Hope we can arrange a meeting. πŸ˜ƒ

    1. Heyjude says:

      It might be colder on the Atlantic side of the coast. I didn’t see anyone wearing a wetsuit here. What are your plans? Email me and we can see if we can arrange to meet at some point,

      1. I have emailed you twice, but no reply yet.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Emailed you today! Hopefully you’ll get it.

        2. Yes I did. Thanks. I’ve replied

    It does look rather wonderful, Jude, and I don’t like walnuts so no worries there. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Heyjude says:

      Walnuts? I am going to have to think about this.

    2. Heyjude says:

      Ah, penny dropped. The cake. No worries there was a Victoria sponge, chocolate brownies and something else I think. My eyes went straight to the coffee and walnut πŸ˜€

      1. restlessjo says:

        I’ll have the something else. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t eat a lot of cake.

        1. Heyjude says:

          No. Of course not. It’s the Driver who eats cake.

        2. restlessjo says:

          Exactly right πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Spectacular colours in that sea.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It can be truly gorgeous around this coast.
