Walking the Costal Path, St Ives

We arrived in St Ives to glorious blue sky and a lovely warm temperature.  The next morning, after drawing back the curtains, we groaned about the pure grey sky but set off for our day out anyway, hopeful that the blue would return.

Beginning by strolling along the beach, which lead to another beach, and another… they were all quite deserted and the soft sand was lovely.  Carlos then found a path, which we followed.  This turned out to be The Costal Path, which we followed and saw beautiful beaches, which we then explored.  It was such a great find!  The weather changed every few minutes and in the end, the blue sky came back!  Despite the grey sky for most of the day, the water was still amazingly blue and clear…

We sat for a while and watched this amazing boat, which we imaged was going on a great expedition.  The water was also full of paddle boarders.

After clambering down the rocks, we were rewarded with the almost empty beach, and spent a while admiring the beautiful black patterns in the sand.DSC03454

Then it was back onto the path, with a view of the beach from above and this cute little robin.DSC03472

These clouds looked threatening but beautifully dramatic.  Then within minutes the blue sky was back and brought out the even bluer water with it…DSC03526 DSC03534 DSC03539 DSC03557

Such a wonderful walk with great views and even better beaches to spend the day on.  Have you been to St Ives?

    • Thank you, Cheryl! We had such a great time there and were stunned by all of the natural beauty that was on offer. The patterns in the sand were so beautiful, and even more beautiful that they were on a deserted beach 😀

  1. You paint such a beautiful picture here! I love when the beach is almost deserted and I get to have it all to myself! So peaceful and relaxing! I’m glad the blue skies finally showed themselves for you!! Also thanks so much for the nomination! I can’t wait to be a Travel Tuesday Co-host !!! 😀

  2. Your photos are always so lovely! We have a similar coastal walk here in Sydney (Coogee to Bondi), and I love checking it out. Thanks for sharing yours!!!

  3. What a pretty beach! The black sand patterns are so cool. The water looks really pretty even with the grey skies, and then I couldn’t believe how blue it was when the sun was out! And I LOVE that picture of the fat robin… so cute!!
