Gotta be done when you're in Cornwall!

We actually forgot about it last year, so we decided that before 2015 closes, we have to make our way to Land's End, the most westerly point of Cornwall and England. 

The entrance above was the only part where the wind mas manageable. As we got closer to the famous signpost, it turned freezing mainly due to the wind and not the temperature. Another tourist offered to take our photos and I really thought he was going to be blown away as the strong gust was rocking him from side to side. I thought I better quickly grab the camera by its strap before it does happen.

I'd love a holiday home with an unobstructed view of the ocean

Land's End is a 45-minute drive from Redruth where we stayed. The area reminds me of West Irish coast except that in the latter, you don't pay to park in tourist spots. That's a big plus especially when anywhere in England is annoyingly pay and display, and it's not even cheap.

The obligatory pose by the post

Leaving Last End, we had no idea where to drive next. We never had definite plans when we drive out of town --which is so unlike me as I prefer most things arranged down to the minutest details. Deciding whether to turn left or right, I saw a signpost pointing to Sennen Cove, a popular surfing destination in Cornwall. 

Driving down to meet the ocean. . .

What's there to love about wintry coastlines? Not everyone is drawn to it, which makes it alluring to me. I grew up in a tropical country where I spent the first 12 years of my life living in a coastal town. My favourite time of day to walk to the beach is in the morning, when at 25 degrees centigrade, the shores are still deserted for that is considered chilly. Needless to say, I don't like crowds, and you'll find them where the sun is up and the sand is hot.

Local holiday bucket list done. Off to the next one!

When was the last time you were on a cold and wintry beach?
