Greenbank Cove, Cornwall. For Pam.

The water was at its brilliant best. You can just about make out the path to the beach, in front of me - going to the left and round the spiny bush. Not much frequented and its steeper sections mean a beach mercifully free from the hordes. They can stay in Devon!

Heather, gorse and bracken. Crane Castle

Crane Castle, an iron age defensive site. This has almost all succumbed to coastal erosion except for this bulwark which is on the cliff edge now but was built as the inner, landward, rampart.

Now you can see the path down to the cove. And no, you don't just get to the end of the grassy section and dive in!

Just grass (bracken and gorse and a little bit of…

Greenbank Cove

The path down to the cove can just be made out here among the flower spikes. My usual coastal walk and scramble / rock hop goes past Crane Islands, Basset cove and to Porthcadjack seen in the distance with its Asparagus and Samphire Islands and enormous sea cave.

More erosion at Treaga Hill, Ralph's Cupboard, Portreath. I didn't stay here too long (although I was standing on solid granite, I couldn't be too sure what, if anything, lay beneath it!).)

Depending on rainfall patterns, this can be a raging torrent or a drop a minute but this is about average.

It is possible, after much debate (and the jury is still out), that the islands from left to right are Asparagus and Samphire Islands (although not actually islands at low tide!).

A little further distant, Crane Islands and in the far distance, Godrevy Island and Lighthouse. This is taken directly above the sea cave, shown a few shots back.

Coastal Erosion at Ralph's Cupboard, Portreath, Cornwall. Not the cleverest place to stand and take a shot, I grant you! Not much time left: www.generosity.com/community-fundraising/ipernity-members-association-a-non-profit-entity/x/16256307

This path is steeper than it looks here. Fun going down but care needed. And a slog coming back!

I could only get this shot of the main feature at Porthcadjack (its sea cave) because of the very low tide! Maybe a twice a year event. By the way, the path down to the cove is seen directly opposite. It is easy but you wouldn't guess it from this vantage point!
