Cornwall – 3 November 2014

This morning I asked the newsagent what the weather would be like today, “Changeable” he replied. It got rained on for the first time walking back to the cottage, I then got soaked in Porthleven before getting a shower in Zennor and rained on in Penzance; this is what holidays in Cornwall are like in…

Cornwall – 2 November 2014

We were a little weary today, a mixture of travel and a strange bed I think; so we’ve just been around Newlyn today in the sunshine or dodging the showers. Newlyn is still a working port with a fishing fleet and a big fish wholesale market. In the picture you can also see the Penlee…

22 More Cornwall

21 Cornwall

I love the drive to Cornwall and from Bath it’s even easier than before. A gentle cruise down the M5 is easy on a Sunday in November; through the Mendips, across the Somerset Levels and into Devon. Beyond Exeter the road is more challenging,more bends and a lot of up and down particularly as the…
