Lazy days

Wow! Aren't we lucky with this beautiful sunny weather. I just keep pinching myself when I wake up to yet another day of cloudless skies and light breeze.

I think Cornwall has more than its fair share of rain or 'mizzle', so I'm very grateful for a chance to enjoy the best this special place has to offer.

If you're visiting the far west of Cornwall, then I recommend a visit to the beaches near Sennen and this little gem, Porthgwarra.

A rock arch cut into the cliff leads the way. Apparently it was dug by tin miners from the nearby village  to give farmers access to the beach with their horse and carts. They would come down to collect seaweed to use as fertiliser on their crops.

Today, it's the perfect place to relax and let your thoughts drift away.


  1. Hello. Just been scrolling through some of your Cornish posts as we are spending a week inCornwall in September. Further East than you though, Fowey.

  2. Fowey is one of my favourite places in Cornwall - lucky you! Make sure you check out Pinky Murphy's cafe it's a great spot for relaxing.
