We chose the easy walk because the medium one was too steep. It was a pleasure to meander along, looking over stone fences at farm gardens, enjoying wide vistas of fields and hedges, gently following the coastal path, and arriving in Land’s End
Land’s End at last! We had been warned that Land’s End had been turned into “Disneyland” by a private developer
. When we first saw it from afar, we could see a large building or buildings. Our route was circuitous, so we walked away from the landmark in the morning and approached it again in mid-afternoon. Walking along the coast, we had to be told this was Land’s End, otherwise it seems to be just another one of the endless coves and points of land. Indeed the waters of the Atlantic and the Channel split a bit further north at Cape Cornwall
. Putting the small Disney-ish theme-park to our back, we saw many points of land. On the most rocky I decided we should have our photos taken. The guide, John, kindly answered our hail and came to take a photo of Deirdre and me, with the Longships Light
on some distant rocks in the background.
The day was
The Highway Man Came Riding
Dramatic enjoyment of fear and chills!
capped off by country dancing in the evening, for which Deirdre and I even knew some steps, thanks to our Regency dancing with ‘Sprigged Muslin
’. Some people did their "party pieces", learned and developed specifically for these Friday evenings with HF Holidays. One woman gave an excellent dramatic recitation of The Highway Man
by Alfred Noyes
. A couple of the holidaying groups put on bad skits to gales of laughter.
