We'll be spending the weekend exploring the coastline between
Lands End and Lizard Point. While there is a basic
itinery, the weekend will planned according to the weather
conditions, and what the group want to do and when.

To maximise our chances of capturing a sunset, we'll
be starting the weekend early afternoon on Friday.
