The Coast of North West Cornwall


[ Photo Gallery # 87 }

To the east and the west of the Camel Estuary (see my blog of a week ago ) lie numerous inlets of the sea . Delightful coves and small villages  clinging to the Cornish cliffs.  Below is a gallery of my photographs of a number of these.

  1. Another beautiful part of the UK Roland. It is one of those coasts that draws you in all year round and is as spectacular in the Winter as it is in the Summer.
