Beach and rocks

The weather was back with us today as we found ourselves already at our last full day in Falmouth.  We decided to check out the beaches we saw as we walked along the headland from Pendennis Point on Tuesday.  Where we were staying was all harbour and boats so it was nice to see some of the beach close by.
