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 […]

Helston Flora Day 2018

Helston Flora Day 2018

Helston Flora Day 2018 was a brilliant, colourful affair. I’d like to say the day started off bright and sunny, but it dawned grey and dull. Never mind, the day kicked off with the 7 o’clock dance through the town. There are stalls lining the streets – although sadly not as many as there used […]

Strange Weather in Cornwall

Strange Weather in Cornwall

We are having such strange weather here in Cornwall this winter. It goes without saying that winters in Cornwall can be wet, but this one has been even wetter than normal, so I was very happy yesterday when I went out for a walk in glorious sunshine. “Spring is here” I thought. I walked from […]

Cornish Sunsets

Cornish Sunsets

The weather is always a bit dodgy this time of year but on brighter days, it can be a great time for photographing Cornish sunsets. One of my favourite places to walk the dog and to photograph Cornish sunsets is Praa Sands beach at low tide, just a short drive from #Porthleven. The sand is […]

Cornish Winter

Cornish Winter

November is already here and we will soon be into the Cornish winter when everything quietens down, fires are lit, and people start looking forward to Christmas. Today it’s sunny outside, but the wind is fresh. I had a nice walk with our dog this morning, through the woods and across the hilltop, with superb […]

Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven

Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven

I’ve had some lovely walks to Loe Bar and Loe Pool Porthleven recently and it made a very pleasant change to be looking at Loe Bar and Loe Pool from east to west instead of doing my usual walks in the woodland on the western side of the lake. The scenery always changes, depending upon […]
