... the castle. Unfortunately it was not open, but you could still stroll around the fort bits on the hillside. Pretty impressive and nice for a wander. Again on such a beautiful sunny day, we were spoilt with views. Managed to spot another seal in the water aswell!
From here it was time to head home, but what a lovely few days of winter Cornish sun!
We embraced a very early start to bomb it over to the lovely Cornwall, and our first stop was Lizards Point. Right out on the peninsula and the furthest point South in England, it is a beautiful spot. We wandered down to the view point and checked out an old RNLI station, before having a ramble round the clifftops along the coastpath taking in the stunning views.

Lovely lazy dinner in front of a roaring fire. So good to see our old pals ...
