After a couple of sedate hours in Helston, one of them in the excellent Museum we headed to the Southern tip of the UK. Kynance Cove was not prepared to reveal it's 'one of the best beaches in The World' as low tide was still a few hours away. However, this wild corner of The Lizard peninsula still looked amazing on a blowy November day. We picnic'd out of the wind, overlooking the treacherous looking seas below.We called at Mullion Cove on the way back, where workmen were repairing the harbour, while The Atlantic served up crashing winter waves that made their lifeline look optimistic on the 'business' side of the fractured wall.

A bike ride South took me past the nearer beaches and then on through Mawnan Smith, dropping down to pretty Helford Passage. The 25% climb out again required a low gear and a high effort! The road got thinner again as I headed over to Port Navas, a picture perfect place, nestled in an inlet off the Helford River. The route back home was comparatively 'flat'.
