Gantheaume Point

I finally got to visit Gantheaume Point on the weekend thanks to a very generous family I had only just met. This place is known for its lighthouse and dinosaur footprints visible in some rocks. The latter can only be seen at very low tides, so I didn't get to see them, but they have some casts of them higher up and I honestly don't think the clamber down the rocks at low tide would be worth it anyway. The colours, as you can see, are stunning, enhanced by the setting sun (but not by the smoke!)

This very eager and adventurous 2 year old led the way (along with her brave mum!), climbing up and down...

The colours seem so brilliant; the rocks, sky, water.
It's like the colours down south here have had a gauze covering compared to up north.
