Rose-in-Vale Break: March 2013: Part 1

My IWC and I are staying at the Rose-in-Vale Hotel in Mithian for a few days. The intention being to complete a couple more stretches of the Cornish Coastal Footpath around here. The weather for the past 10 days or so has been ideal for walking but, you've guessed it, it's changed!  A very grey and misty trip down (it takes all of an hour to get here) but with brighter prospects for tomorrow and Saturday. The plan is to use the local public transport and do some linear walks from Point A back to our car at Point B. Tomorrow we'll be plugging a gap east of here from Perranporth and on Saturday a section between Porthtowan and Portreath.  Fingers crossed for some clear weather so we can get some good views. The cliff birds are starting their nest-building activities and there should be lots to see.  A chough has been spotted not far from here and, who knows, we could be in luck.

Trevaunance Cove, just outside of St Agnes. A rather hazy shot but very atmospheric nonetheless. It's hard to imagine that this was once the location of an extremely busy port servicing the many tin mines in the area.

Lichen and liverwort on a wooden post make an attractive still life. The muted greens contrast vividly with the bright yellow daffodils in the vicinity.
