Porthtowan-Gwithian part 2

I'm going to let most of these pics speak for themselves... the lighthouse is Godrevy.

We discovered that the crowd of people standing on the cliff edge which I mentioned earlier, were watching a congregation of seals (is there a noun for a group of seals?).We didn't join them, but lay down on the edge of the cliff nearby and peered over.

It was lovely watching them in the water and lumbering around over the stones... you'll see quite a few if you look carefully although the pic blurs a bit.

Other than Hell's Mouth, I do not remember walking this area before though I am sure I must have.
We spent a little while in Gwithian waiting for the bus back home, and visited these two lovely churches.

The Parish Church had this notice on the door...
The churchyard had a wonderful atmosphere...

We stopped for another coffee at the National Trust shop in near Gwithian Bridge, a lovely design for a building and served by a lovely girl. It had been a superb day again, better than I anticipated as I thought this part might not be as good as some of the other areas we have walked.
