    Lands End and Angharrack Xmas lights

    December 14, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    After lunch and an ice cream we drove 30 mins west to the Minack Theatre.
    This outdoor theatre was hand made by Rowena Cade in the late 1920’s and is a highlight on the Cornish coastline at Porthcurno.
    Sadly today there was nothing on but we were also fighting the soon to be ending day light and winds that were so strong we could hardly stand up so instead of paying £5 to look around properly the kind lady on the desk let us have a quick peek for free before we jumped in the warm car and headed the extra 15 mins to Lands End.
    We just got a couple of photos in at the famous signpost and admired the wild seas before the heavens opened and it lashed it with rain.
    Back in the car the last port of call for the day was Angharrack- a tiny village outside of Hayle reknown for its 12 Days of Christmas light decorations.
    After a pint in the pub waiting until 5pm for the lights to be switched on we walked through this amazing little place admiring the effort in
    All of the Xmas lights.
    We couldn’t find the Partridge in the Pear tree- apparently it was in the garden of a lady who had gone to Mexico for the Xmas holidays and no- one had the key to her garage to switch it on!!! Too funny.
    By now we were all pretty tired so off we went home for dinner and the final of Strictly Come Dancing.
    Great day was had by all.

    Mit Britannien am Ende

    August 18, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Land‘s End. Tolle Landschaft + freundliche Menschen. Aber auch am Ende der Geduld mit der überaus komplizierten Art in UK zu reisen. Ohne Reservierung kommt man hier spontan nicht durch. Alles sehr eng und immer gegen den Uhrzeigersinn. Ein schönes Symbol dafür haben wir heute in der wunderschönen Cornwall-Landschaft gefunden: das „Mên-an-Tol“. Ein ca. 4000 Jahre altes mystisches Steinsymbol mit einem eigenen speziellen Zauber.
    In eigener Sache:
    Wir haben unseren Plan, auch noch in Irland durch den Sprühregen auf der falschen Straßenseite zu fahren heute gecancelt. Wir sehnen uns nach 2 Monaten im kühlen Norden unterwegs jetzt auch langsam mal nach Sommersonne und etwas wärmeren Meerwasser. (by the way: der heißeste Tag unserer Reise war der 19.6. in Kiel mit 26‘C...)
    Jetzt schnappen wir uns noch schnell einen englischen Meeresmaler, dann geht es südwärts! ☀️

    Land's End. Great landscape + friendly people. But also at the end of patience with the extremely complicated way to travel in UK. Without a reservation you can't get through spontaneously. Everything very narrow and always counterclockwise. Today we found a beautiful symbol for this in the beautiful Cornwall landscape: the "Mên-an-Tol". A 4000 year old mystical stone symbol with its own special magic.
    On our own behalf:
    We have cancelled our plan to drive also still in Ireland by the spray rain on the wrong street side today. We long after 2 months in the cool north on the way now also slowly times for summer sun and somewhat warmer sea water.
    Now we quickly grab an English sea painter, then we head south! ☀️

    Land's End

    July 10, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nach dem nördlichsten Punkt des britischen Festlands bin ich nun am westlichsten angekommen.
    17.30 Uhr Ortszeit ist hier nichts mehr los, aber vielleicht auch gut so bei dem Angebot von allem möglichen in der Größe eines mittleren Outletcenters.

    Land's End

    October 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Land's End muss man einfach gesehen haben, auch wenn es eine Touristenfalle ist ;-) Etwas Abseits in Richtung Sennen Cove ist ein altes Schiffswrack, die RMS Mülheim: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Mülheim
    Der deutsche Frachter lief 2003 an der Küste von Lands End unter polnischer Besatzung auf Grund und brach später auseinander. Die noch zu sehenden Frackteile können nicht geborgen werden. Man kann in einer Schlucht zwischen den Klippen hinunter steigen, es ist ein etwas gruseliger Ort. Sehr eindrucksvoll.Read more

    Lands End

    April 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    No visit to Cornwall is complete without going to Lands End. It is a little more commercial than when I went as a ten year old but I managed to have a photo taken in the same spot as an old family one we have. I found out from the signpost photographer that I was 12506 miles from home! It was a very chilly spot with wind blowing harder than a Wellington southerly and I was grateful for the layer of merino under my jacket. The rugged Cornish coast was a treat to see despite the cold.

    A warm lunch was in order and my Uncle Nick had messaged me from Perth to tell me the best place to get one. He was spot on and the pasty from Philps was close to one my nana used to make.

    Land's End, England

    September 11, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 14 °C

    The day started out with rain and wind, not looking good for our trip to Land's End, the furtherest village South in England. After 2 hrs 45 mins driving we arrived at Land's End to blue skies but very windy. How lucky we were. Had a great time walking along the cliff edges trying not to get blown away. Surprised at the photos we did get considering the wind and sea mist.
    We drove back along the coastline along some very narrow roads lined with rock walls covered in blackberries, hardly room for one car let alone passing room and then a double decker bus is heading towards you. What the ..... Finally we arrived at St Ives. We drove through the town centre taking turns in streets that had signs stating for small vehicles and motor bikes only. Again I found my way going up streets that look like dead ends only to have a car turn into the street and hope to pass me. Some laughs had at the impossible situations we ended up in, thankfully we made it through. I did a quick run down the many steps for photos of St Ives at low tide. The tide retreats so much that the entire harbour is high and dry. Would love to spend more time wandering along the coastline and taking some time out in St Ives. Maybe next visit.

    Land's End

    September 11, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    We arrived at Land's End late in the morning. It is lovely, but no more so than other spots along the coast. I suppose their is some mystical attraction in knowing that one is as close as one can be to America while still on British soil.

    Das Ende von England - ob das wohl die letzte Bank ist, auf der man sitzt, bevor es in den Himmel geht?

    Stille - Meeresrauschen - Ozean

    Cornwall day 25 Thu 17 May 2018

    May 17, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    The light rain of yesterday has stopped and we had breakfast at 8am after Margaret had taken the eggs to the Co op market. Left about 10am and drove to the Carn Euny Iron Age village containing a fogou (underground chamber and passage). Then drove to Sennen Beach passing on the way with difficulty a car and truck in a narrow lane. Walked to Lands End along the Coast Path passing a wreck on the way. Yvonne purchased a tea towel from the “First and Last” shop. Returned to the car and drove to Cape Cornwall and parked at the edge of St Just village. Walked downhill to Cape Cornwall then down a track to Porth Ledden cove via a high tide boat access. As it was low tide we crossed the rocks and I took photos of seaweed and mussels before arriving at the Kenidjack area of the Tin Coast. We saw the conserved arsenic works ruin near the catcher pool dam. Followed the Coast Path towards St Just and back to the car. Drove to the the Bowood Park Hotel Lanteglos, Camelford which is in the middle of it’s own golf course. Dinner at the hotel as is not near any urban centre.Read more

    The End of the World

    October 3, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Soooo, off to Land's End. Amazing scenery, we were literally blown away. Mostly because of the gales, the remnants of an Atlantic hurricane. But we got the requisite sites seen before the rain joined in.

    We then decamped to Praa Sands again for pizza, then home for a snooze.
