Walk to Barafundle Bay




 


A friend and I decided to go to Barafundle Bay


 


The views as you walk across the cliff top are incredible





There are a lot of steps to start  



and then a mainly flat walk along the cliff top



 


It is such a beautiful beach and
there are no car parks so the only way there
is to.....


walk!!

Sometimes carrying beach equipment
and lunch!!






 


But, don't you think it's worth it?


 


It belonged to an estate and was walled


























                          I love the patterns
           that the waves have made on the sand!






         We spotted this plant high up on the rock
              and were told by a passing walker
                   it was called Viper's Bugloss







               There's a good view from the top











              Some little dogs have to be helped
                         to reach the water





                
                  Others can do it by themselves








                The walk back was just as beautiful.....






                           Stackpole quay



     Time for a quick coffee before heading home!
