THE DISTANT HORIZON....

I took this photo whilst standing on the cliff top between Porthcurnick beach and Portscatho.   Just out to sea is yet another Gull Rock - so many rocks off the Cornish coast have the same name - and the first headland you see, the one with the coastguard lookout, is Pednvadn.  Next is Nare Head and beyond that is the Dodman, at 374 feet the highest point on the south Cornwall coast.   And just visible on the distant horizon, if you click on the photo to make it bigger, is the outline of Rame Head, almost at the eastern boundary of Cornwall.

Over the years we have walked most of this whole section of coast path, climbed Nare Head and The Dodman  and marvelled at the beauty, the solitude and the peace of mind that, whatever the weather, inevitably comes with each visit.   No wonder we`re already booked for another visit.......
