Newlyn 2017 – Day 1

It’s that time of year again so Mrs Sixwheeler and I are off for our annual visit to Newlyn, right down there in the wild west if Cornwall. For any of you who haven’t been here with us before here’s a little background. Mrs Sixwheeler was born on the Isle of Scilly, an archipelago of…

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…

Newlyn 2015 – Day 2

Cornwall – 7 November 2014

I was walking back from the paper shop this morning and realised that I hadn’t taken a picture of the cottage we’re staying in, so here it is. Not the whole thing mind you, just the bit to the right of the doorway with the open upstairs window. It’s two up and two down but…
