Sennen Cove, pictured last Friday 12 August, at around 9-9.30 in the morning - wet, misty conditions don't detract from the empty beauty of this lovely, curved beach.
We stayed with my friend's brother and his wife, who run the Old Success Inn, Sennen arriving on the Thursday evening in plenty of time to take part in the regular quiz. After a night spent within earshot of the sea (the photo above was taken just across the road from the Old Success) in what must be the most comfortable beds ever, followed by a delicious full English breakfast, we made our way down to the sea.
Thank heavens for wet suits!
'Ground sea' had created pits in the sand, kelp strands swirled around my feet and I was thrilled to be joined by a Shag swimming and diving within touching distance - that's a first, what a treat.
