Cornish favourites: Cornish Harbours

After a night of gales and hail, awakening to white roof tops and a temperature that is very unCornish, I thought we’d go back to a warmer time and a re-visit to the pretty Cornish harbour towns down here in the south-west.

St Ives harbour


It’s hard not to fall in love with Cornwall where a magnificent coastline wraps itself around 300 miles of diverse landscapes. The big skies and wilderness of Bodmin Moor to the north with walking trails and prehistoric remains, further south the sun turns the sea turquoise and the land is scattered with Bronze age standing stones and Celtic crosses where the natural light is so blinding. In the west there is a special art scene and Cornwall is becoming a real foodie heaven with top-class chefs producing gourmet menus, daily offerings of fresh fish and seafood and local produce such as cheeses, wine and meat widely available from delicatessens, farmers’ markets and roadside stalls, not to mention Cornish pasties and well-loved clotted cream teas.

    I looked back at my comment in 2013, and enjoyed the photos again. My Mum’s favourite place with a harbour was always Mevagissey, but I haven’t been back there as an adult.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      We had a very nice meal in a pub on the harbour in Mevagissey just before Christmas. It is still a lovely little harbour.

    Cornwall is on my to-visit list! Wish I could go there!

    If only you could sort the weather out? Still, I can hardly brag up here. 🙂 🙂 A very light dusting of snow this morning, ice skating pavements and more snow to follow tonight. Yippee! 🙂 We were going to Durham to meet friends for a meal tomorrow night and they’ve had to cancel. I’m only half sorry.
    I gather you’re meeting lovely Dina and Klaus next week? How exciting! 🙂

      Gusting around my ears already tonight, but last night was horrendous – wind and hailstones! Yes, I do hope to meet up with the Fab Four next week, though as you know, I am a little nervous meeting people…

    I see i’ve already liked that post, and i do remember it, but the date is surprising. I’m sure I didn’t know you in 2013. I didn’t know ANY other bloggers in 2013, so I must have been on a catch-up. Nice to read it again.

      Time flies Anabel… 😀

    That was a lovely one to go back to, and we still haven’t managed to meet up even though you’ve been down there two years!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Gosh it is coming up to two years isn’t it! Maybe we can try for Rosemoor again or even that garden in Buckland Monachorum?

Have something to say?
