Portwrinkle

I took these images a couple of years ago when we visited Cornwall. We were very close to this beautiful corner of the coastline, so I found plenty of opportunities to capture the fascinating rocks on the shore line, which I assume gave rise to the name or Portwrinkle?
Portwrinkle is a small coastal village in south-east Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is at the western end of Whitsand Bay five miles south-west of Saltash.
Portwinkle was traditionally a fishing village and the old 17th century walls of the pilchard cellars are still standing, although they have been incorporated into housing. The village has a harbour and two beaches are accessible from it. Although the village has no shops, apart from the beach car park cafe, there is a post office in nearby village of Crafthole.

I have included a couple of images from Landsend and Sennen Cove.
