Lands End Lookout

After the Cliff House brunch Mabel Watson Payne wanted to go exploring. Near the top of the curving sidewalk we discovered the newly opened Lands End Lookout. It provided Mabel with opportunities to clamber up, over and around all sorts of things.

The animals are concrete casts of original 19th century sculptures.

Eventually the sun did break through the fog, which meant that Mabel didn't really need her heavy pink coat anymore. 

Mabel picked the little white weed-flowers growing along the picket fence and then brought them to me to put into my buttonhole.

In the picture immediately above, Mabel is instructing me to put the camera away and come and hold her free hand instead. Which of course is what I did.
