North to Tintagel

Tuesday I travelled in the opposite direction up to the north coast and visited Tintagel, of King Arthur fame. It was another sunny day, but with some cloud, and a lot more wind, particularly when you get out on the castle site. There's a lot of earthworks there at the moment - not archaeological but a water treatment system. They're hoping to get it finished for Easter, which will be the start of the holiday season, but it doesn't stop you getting down there. The tide was out so it was possible to get into the caves on the beach, where the sea comes in at high tide.
