Cornwall is a beautiful corner of England: Rugged, colourful and full of personality. A couple of years ago I spent a few days travelling around the Cornish coast in search of hidden treasures (partly) and ice cream, fudge and fish and chips (mostly).

Destinations included Newlyn, Lamorna Cove, Land’s End, St. Ives, Padstow, Newquay, Tintagel and Boscastle. Some were busy with tourists, others completely abandoned, but each has its own unique appeal, from craggy coastlines and golden beaches to top restaurants and rustic pubs. The views are wonderful and the Cornish beers delectable. I am long overdue a return.

One of my favourite ever pictures is this one of gulls circling in the sky in St Ives:

Newlyn harbour looks particularly lovely early in the morning and later in the evening:

And Newquay’s Fistral Beach, a prime spot for surfers, brings back great memories for me as a teen with my buddies!

  1. Some gorgeous pictures, really tell a story! Especially like the sky shot with the seagulls – I think that is just me being selfish as it would work well with my poems!!!!
