It's no secret that I love pebbles, and often come home from a beach walk with my pockets stuffed. But there is one place I occasionally visit where taking pebbles is a criminal offence. They're also the sort of pebbles you would just love to take home and pile in your garden.
Porth Nanven, near St Just, on the north coast of Penwith, is tucked away at the end of a secluded valley in an area rich with the relics of mining's heritage. As the cliff erodes, the huge granite boulders are exposed, until eventually they fall and join those carpeting the tiny cove.
We came here on sunday afternoon for a walk down the valley and a potter in the sunshine.
There aren't many things that please me more than relaxing on a giant pebble listening to the sounds of the sea tumbling over the rocks, while being warmed by the gentle heat of the afternoon sun.
It was a memorable Easter sunday.
