BIGGEST WAVES ON EARTH HIT THE WEST! Eye catching headlines in the Western Morning News yesterday, (westernmorningnews.co.uk) predicted 40ft waves rolling in at Sennen Cove – apparently the best place to see nature at her most furious! Left the desk and the laptop – this was too good to miss! Drove a good hour or more down to Lands End and swung off to Sennen Cove. Quiet after the half term break, but not so the pub – ‘The Old Success Inn’ even in the late afternoon had a log fire lit, families in with their babies enjoying a glass of wine, locals propping up the bar, and a man on his laptop enjoying his pint. Most distracting as supposed to be wave watching, met some lovely people and missed most of the waves! The menu was tempting but a casserole in the oven at home beckoned, but it would have been very easy to stay.
Didn’t get far enough along the cliff path to take a picture of the giant waves, but the even the beach looked pretty spectacular! Although WMN today did say that the waves were not as big as expected!
A long, long way down west – but if you crave peace and tranquillity and are happy with blustery walks and a good book – a great place to live or buy a holiday home. For as little as £134,000 you can buy a one bed flat with a view, £300,000 would get you a 3-bed terrace and if you could stretch to nearer the £700,000 mark you could own a fabulous 3-bed apartment a stone throw from the beach!
