Trip to Cornwall (Cornish walking paths and Cornish Coast)

I'd like to share the photos I have taken on my recent trip to Cornwall with my LJ friends, for I was quite fortunate about the weather most of time and took some very nice photos! This is the 2nd, and maybe the best part!

I had been to Cornwall twice before and know enough that its hiking paths are amazingly pleasant with the marvelous scenery. So on this recent trip I have made walks on the famous "South West Coast Path" - 2 whole-day walks (about 6 hours) and 3 short (1 or 2 hours), each walks were quite enjoyable though on some walks it's too sunny that I've got much suntan XD  I loved its coasts - cliffs, rocky shore and coves, small sandy beaches ...and amazingly beautiful colour of water! Cornwall is a remote place and I heard that together with fishing smuggling had been a big business here in old days... and I could easily imagine the smugglers landing their cargos in those small coves and carrying them on those obscure coast pathes. Also I enjoyed to imagine the sailing ships on that beautiful horizon.

I hope my LJ friends would enjoy these photos as I did the scenery!
