Newlyn to Penberth Cove

I have paddled from Newlyn to Lamorna Cove on many occasions, but this time we decided to go a bit further to Penberth Cove, this was to be a great decision as the Lamorna to Penberth bit is a wonderful stretch of coastline with some amazing rock and cliff formations. We were lucky to have done our trip at low tide which is fast becoming my favorite condition for coastal exploration.

Little in the way of wind and waves and just a small amount of swell. The sheer beauty of the coast, particularly further west makes up for any loss of excitement that rougher sea conditions can give.

PS. Thanks to Kevin and Sian for the Apr├Ęs-paddle birthday cake and coffee in a lovely little cafe above the Mousehole swimming pool.
