Lands End...

Before leaving Cornwall, DH and I made our way to Lands End. It was a very, very cold day and there was even some rain... Brrr, but we wouldn't have wanted to miss it!













We got so cold from walking around that we had to get a cup of hot tea to help thaw out! 

DH also bought a hot pasty to help with the thawing...


Neither of us took any photos of the commercialism of this beautiful and remote area...but it is all well back from the cliffs and near the carpark so it can't spoil the beauty. There are shops and fun fair type attractions but there weren't any takers that cold day we were there.
I had noticed a sign near Lands End with Minack Theatre on it. I wondered if it was anything to do with the writer Derek Tangye who wrote a number of books including one called the Minack Chronicles. So we set out for this Minack Openair Theatre. It turned out to be nothing to do with the author but it was a beautiful area to visit...




Thinking I was walking where Derek Tangye had trod...I walked along the cliff paths, lol. 

Another lovely day of exploring.

I'm glad you didn't take any photos of the commercial side of Land's End as it is so out of place. They even try to charge people to take photos of the signposts!! It's very similar at the other end of the UK in John O'Groats, though the scenery there is not so beautiful.

What a beautiful spot Maria.
Thanks for sharing it with us.

Beautiful area, can see why you'd brave the cold to walk those cliffs.

What a fantastic holiday you're having. I've just spent a bit of time catching up on the posts I've missed....like the one featuring the houseboats...I'd love to stay on one of those one day. Isn't blogging a perfect way to document a trip like this?

Beaut to see Land's End too - you both look like you're well rugged up for the cold.
Dramatic scenery, I agree, you've just got to go there and have a look.
Oh yum, I had another attack of pasty envy seeing your DH about to devour one. A genuine cornish pasty!! Bet it was delicious. Fantastic spot for a cuppa too - those views :D) Cheers now

It is beautiful! And lucky me, I could enjoy it without being cold ;)
