Land's end

Land's End (Cornish name: Penn an Wlas) is a headland on the Penwith peninsula, located near Penzance in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is the most westerly tip of the southern mainland (for Great Britain as a whole it is Corrachadh Mòr, Ardnamurchan, Scotland which is 22 miles further west). It is often thought to be the most southerly point in the British mainland, but that honour in fact falls to Lizard Point, a few miles to the south-east. Visible from Land's End is the Longships Lighthouse. The Longships, a few miles out, is a serpentine and quartz island. Offshore, midway between Land's End and the Isles of Scilly, is the supposed location of the mythical lost land of Lyonesse, referred to in Arthurian literature.Me, mia and Josiah posing nearby the cliffs. We later on realised that no other tourist dare to come this close to brim of this boundless cliff.
Josiah was wearing Mia's hat. Oh yes, did I mention that I've cut Josiah's hair again?Unfortunately, to my dismay, this land beauty has been exploited. From theme park, various gift shop, to farming (farming on seaside???) And this is the fattest poultry I had ever seen...But no doubt, Land's end offers one of the best views in Cornwall.
