I was last here at seahorse cottage in November 2006, when I was more sprightly! I am now eighty five and with the aid of my stick I walk each day to the beach with my lovely daughter and son in-law Elisabeth and Stephen, and I must not forget their dog Ruby a welsh springer spaniel, I am still overjoyed at the wonderful cliffs and colours orange and blue. We walked a little way to the waterfall but had to take care because of ground being slippery. Tuesday was sunny so the crows all around us were exceptional, Thank you for providing us with such a lovely cottage.
