Going Underground

This is how the day greeted me this morning.
I thought I’d been to most of the gardens in the area, but today I visited Trengwainton.

I have passed it many times and thought I’d been there before, but this was not the case

Great gardens, high up, great views over Mounts Bay..

Then took a walk along some of the most desolate coastline in Cornwall – desolate but still spectacular. The cliffs are scared by the mines (Levant an Geevor) and it looks more like the surface of Mars than a piece of the Cornish coast.
Finally, I’d hoped to catch the sunset at Kynance Cove. Unfortunately two things stopped this. One, I didn’t have the patience to wait until 8pm and two, the Sun was heading out of view, behind a cliff!
