Poldhu to Loe Pool (Lizard Peninsula)

A new gallery including some shots that were in Lizard West now updated for 2011 visit

Poldhu is a large safe beach with car park & cafe; include visit to Marconi centre and memorial on cliff just south.
Church Cove is a smaller beach, also safe at most times with church as additional interest; the Barefoot Cafe on Helzephron Cliff takes my prize for best cafe in Cornwall without serious competition
Gunwalloe is never safe for swimming but good walking with a couple of viable diagonals from shingle to cliff path (but fun to try the passing the point dry as the tide come up)
There seemed to be far less birds both on Gunwalloe and around Loe Pool 2011
