Newlyn 2016 – Day 3

Sorry about the delay in getting the next blog posted, we’ve been rushing about a lot. Day 3 of this year’s Newlyn trip started very dull and damp as Maude and I went for the papers, but just to show that Newlyn is still a busy working harbour, here’s a view of it and here’s…

Newlyn 2017 – Day 2

There are certain things that never vary about our stays in Newlyn, morning and evening dog walks. Last night when Maude and I went out it was in the middle of a rain storm of biblical proportions. Fortunately I have plenty of wet weather gear to keep me dry and warm and Border Terriers have…
