Cornish South West Coast Path

Cornish South West Coast Path

If you are coming on holiday, the Cornish South West Coast Path has much to recommend it, especially around the #Porthleven area where the scenery is outstanding. The weather has been so hot and sunny that the cliffs are not as green and lush as usual, but the cliff flowers are still stunning. The pink […]

Summer in Porthleven, What could be Better

Summer in Porthleven – what could be better? Flaming June is living up to its name and it’s scorching here in #Porthleven, #Cornwall. It’s late afternoon and is even too hot to take the dog for a walk. I took her down to the harbour for a swim so she could cool off. Being black […]

The UK seas are home to 40% of the world’s Atlantic Grey Seal population and #Cornwall is one of the easiest places to see these #seals. Sometimes you will see them swimming about close to shore and poking their noses out of […]

Argal Lake Cornwall

Argal Lake Cornwall

I took the dog for a lovely walk today around Argal Lake near Penryn, #Cornwall. I have often meant to explore the area, but despite having lived here for many years, somehow had never got around to it. As I dislike paying for car parking, I drove past the main car park to a lay-by […]

Cornwall Design Fair Trereife House Newlyn

Yesterday I went to the preview of the Cornwall Design Fair held at #Trereife House, Newlyn near #Penzance. Not having been to the #Design #Fair before, I really didn’t know what to expect. It was much bigger and far more varied than I had anticipated with lots of different stalls, mostly, but not solely from […]
