End of April could be cold and damp, or pleasantly warm. I think we would all agree that if someone was visiting our part of the world, wherever that might be, we would want them to see it looking at it's very best! In the end, I decided that we would just have to make the most of whatever the weather decided to throw at us. The important thing, surely, was to enjoy our time together, and have FUN!
In the end, apart from a couple of damp, drizzly days whilst we were 'back at base' as it were, I felt that we were very lucky. Alright, it wasn't exactly hot, but we weren't getting drenched every day either, and almost all our photos show blue skies, which is always a bonus.
This first photo shows Diane outside another charming gift shop in the fishing village of Mousehole. (Mowzel!).
Here we have boats in the small harbour. Along with agriculture and tourism, fishing and boats play a huge part in the daily life of Devon and Cornwall.
We then moved on to St Ives, which, for generations, has been a mecca for artists, because of the wonderful light you will find there.
Obviously, food played a big part of our trip (well, alright then, and the occasional glass of wine) and here we were enjoying dinner in a 'posh' shack, right on the beach. Bliss!
Of course, I had to introduce Diane to the Devonshire and Cornish cream teas that we are famous for!
Cornwall is also famous for the 'Cornish Pasty' and at Carbis Bay we had the most wonderful fish and chips, which this Country is also renowned for.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed the photos today. See you again next time ....
