Trebah Gardens and beach You can walk down the ravine garden to the beach and have cornish ice cream... This was the most westerly embarkation point for D Day. 7,500 troops of the 29th US Infantry embarked here - the whole beach was a concrete apron then - Remains of Jetty - http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/vv316/volvosmoker/DSC01244_zps99b962b5.jpg http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/vv316/volvosmoker/DSC01247_zpse14e82a4.jpg Mooring Ring on top of rocks http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/vv316/volvosmoker/DSC01242_zpsccd6f009.jpg Most of the concrete has been removed but still very flat beach http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/vv316/volvosmoker/DSC01245_zpsba69f288.jpg http://i695.photobucket.com/albums/vv316/volvosmoker/DSC01243_zps29eeff30.jpg

I almost forgot to say that Trebah has an aviation connection as well... At one time it was owned by Donald Healy of car fame... He was an aircraft mechanic and RFC Pilot until he was invalided out due to injuries !

Cheers John We were in one of the first boats that morning - I only had my phone with me and conditions were so bright that most pics were taken by guesswork LOL
