At the beginning of 2017 I became the volunteer Artist-in-Residence @ Arlington Court National Trust Devon - Watch out for my posts about it.

Lots of steps to the beach!


National Trust - Bedruthan steps

On our recent trip we took advantage of National Trust parking and great walks.  This is Bedruthan steps (I think there are about 120 steps on a good day down to the beach)....but first a walk across the cliff top to them...







 Our glimpse of the beach ...

 Can you see the seagulls on the side of the cliff ?


 There - I used the zoom...


I'm not adventurous enough to have negotiated slippery steps down that far -
I'm a klutz at the best of times,
so I sent husband and a certain lurcher down.
Must admit I was relieved to see them down there safely on the beach...


 And husband took photos there...
Looking back at the steps he had just walked down!

But can you see me at the top?

 Yep...there I am...


 

 I made the most of the view and taking pics...


 zooming in....


 and in....








 this is the pic husband was about to take...









Definitely on our 'return to list' and hopefully next time
I will actually attempt to walk down to the beach!

  5. Wow, another amazing place!!! I would have stayed up there with you too -- You have to come back up the steps, which I think may be a bit more difficult if you're not a Lurcher! :-)

  7. A beautiful beach but there's no way I would have gone down all those steps either. Your husband and William must be fearless!
