The coloured cave

My blogging has been a little sparse recently, not least because we keep forgetting to take a camera out on these beautiful sunny but cold days.  So we have been out for walks in the cold and drinking lots of hot chocolate (on occasion laced with brandy)

This weekend we were lucky enough to be offered a guided walk to the coloured cave at Cape Cornwall.  I say walk it was actually a boulder clamber.  This was quite a feat as I am not known for my bouldering skills, but it was worth it when we saw the cave.

Unfortunately the camera didn't capture the subtler pinks further in but it is amazing.  The colours are simply from the minerals in the constantly dripping water

It really looked as though someone had painted the walls.  Well worth the clamber.  I hope you had a beautiful weekend too.


  1. wow! that really is amazing....and yes, stand alone page addict here!!

  2. That is truly amazing! I looks like something from a Munch painting rather than a cave.

  3. It really is an amazing place, and you can't see the colours until you climb right up to it. It's also very narrow and slippery inside

  4. Amazing! How beautiful :-)

  5. That's amazing isn't it! Don't think I've ever seen anything like that before.
