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 […]

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 […]

Winter in Porthleven Cornwall

Winter in Porthleven Cornwall

I actually quite like winter in Porthleven Cornwall, and when things have quietened down and the temperature drops, I know it’s time to light the log burner in the kitchen and get nice and cosy.
