Last Sunday began with a drive to the Cornish North Coast with Sam.
When we arrived, our first port of call was Godrevy Lighthouse. We walked towards it along the coastal path behind Gwithian beach, and, despite the overcast weather, were still welcomed with incredible views of the sea. What was probably a 45 minutes-or-so walk flew by; before I knew it, we were staring at the lighthouse head-on. The brooding weather provided a great opportunity to see the sea crash against the island of the lighthouse, creating a very gothic, Frankenstein-eque scene. Also, Sam informed me that Godrevy is allegedly the exact lighthouse that inspired Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse. Apparently she was on the other side of the St. Ives Bay (in St. Ives) when she wrote it. Cool, right?
