Porthcadjack, high tide.

Porthcadjack, high tide.
These are Samphire and Asparagus Islands. I have never been sure which is which. I asked a local fisherman who had lived in Portreath all his life and he had no idea what I was talking about. He didn't know they had names! The unsentimentality of practical local people!
Mid distance, Crane Islands and North Cliffs, Far distance, Godrevy lighthouse and Reskajeage. I used to enjoy walking between Portreath (a mile behind me) and Godrevy. 5 hours including a walk into Hayle to get the bus back, or 7 hours if I did half the walk at low tide, rock-hopping along the shoreline!

Two monsters! What a great imagination you have, Marie-claire!
The left hand monster has a gentle scramble up its spine and is great fun to play on it's back!
You too have a great weekend!

Roger, I would listen to Sibelius or even Alan Stivell with views such as this. I have no technical ability whatsoever, so when you all start adding musical links, I feel quite lost. And yet sometimes I feel I would like to contribute to sight and sound!

Thank you, micritter!
I wasn't ever going to climb the ridge of the island until I saw a family of all ages go up there with their picnic! I then went up and found it easy (yes, a little exposed in a couple of places but OK) and the father told me that they took their holidays every year in Cornwall and it was a family tradition started by his grandfather to have one picnic 'en famille' on the top every year!
