Cornwall, Day Two: Land's End and St Ives

The plan today was to head out of Port Issac and drive around Cornwall to try and mop up as much of it as possible, leaving the rest of the trip to relax. In other words, we left early.


Our first stop was Penzance, which was not as exotic as I thought it would be. Of course, it was off-peak, and I could just about imagine the bustle during the summer, but it was clear that a more quiet Cornwall had its own charm, and the lack of crowds suited us just fine.


Next on the list was Land's End, which I suppose was pretty much just to say we had geographically been there - it's a bit like our visit to Cabo de Roca back in Lisbon a few months ago.


After a brief hang out at Sennen Cove for a coffee break, we went on to St Ives where we budgeted time for lunch. This was the busiest place we had visited so far, and although that didn't spoil anything, we really began to appreciate the quiet we found so far today.


But after a pretty packed day we headed back to Port Issac, stopping off at Gwithian for a few photos. It had been a long, but chilled, day, and just what we were after when we set out this morning.
