Pictures from Cornwall
The first place we went to in Cornwall was Tintagel. Out on the headland was the ruins of the castle and a fair number of other buildings.
And in the village was the old post office, now a tourist attraction.
Cornwall had stone walls, too, like the Lake District. But the building style was quite different here.
After Tintagel, we travelled south to visit the village of Fowey.
From Fowey we took the little ferry boat across the estuary of the River Fowey to Polruan. Here, after climbing up steeply out of the village, we went for a short walk along the coastal path.
We stayed with Paul's aunt Jean, who lives in Mylor Bridge near Falmouth. Seen here with our children Caroline and Matthew.
In the morning we took the boat to St. Michael’s Mount. We climbed the hill and looked around the castle. Unfortunately the gardens were closed that day.
The weather was mostly sunny, and windy, so from the top of the hill there was a good view over the mainland.
And then onwards to Land’s End. Although the day had been fine up to now, there were some rain squalls here, so we didn’t dally about much.
If you want, the shop at Land’s End will put up the sign for your home town. However since they charged several pounds for the service, we just photographed someone else’s sign.
Driving, or even parking, in St. Ives is an awful thing to do. So we went a short distance away from the town and took the train there.
Even though it was cold and windy in St. Ives, there were still people on the beach there (but none in the water). We got there at low tide, but before long the sea came in and started to float the boats.
