The Lizard Peninsula beckons

After a week celebrating my husbands 60th birthday, culminating in a huge party last night and a day recovering, we are off in the Bongo tomorrow for a couple of days break. We don’t do luxury, but love roughing it with the van in campsites that have little facilities but are in spectacular locations. We have explored much of Cornwall over the last four years revisiting places I went as a child or we took our children when they were small, but also discovered new coves and beaches and walking some of the southwest coast path.

With this in mind, we are going to head for The Lizard, Great Britain’s most southerly land point which also remains quite wild and remote. Despite this, it is quite sheltered in parts and as the weather is still a little unsettled, am hoping it might be a little oasis of warm sunshine.

I have to confess I have an ulterior motive in heading in this direction as we can go via Falmouth and visit the Town Art Gallery where there is an exhibition celebrating the 50th birthday of landscape artist Kurt Jackson who has been my constant inspiration for some time and who I was lucky enough to meet on my 50th birthday last year.

My next post will tell you what it was like, hopefully with some accompanying photos.
