Well, if you know me you know I am a work-a-holic! This last week I spent a week away with my wonderful wife and parents in Cornwall while on holiday. I won’t lie, Cornwall is a gorgeous place of the world and I love going there even if it has taken me 16 years to return to this incredible county (Ignoring my stag do the drive from John O Groats to Lands End in 15 hours, not sure that counts)! Anyway, here are ten photos that stood out from my pile of photos taken while away. I hope you like them!
Featured below are:
Trevaunance cove (where we stayed):
The main beach at St Agnes and a family best-kept secret. A natural harbour and a labyrinth of caves to explore, and at low tide, there is the opportunity to walk to the neighbouring northerly beach of Trevellas Porth.
Wheal Coates is a former tin mine situated on the north coast of Cornwall, England, UK, on the cliff tops between Porthtowan and St Agnes. It is preserved and maintained by the National Trust.
A medieval fortification located on the peninsula of Tintagel Island adjacent to the village of Tintagel. set high on Cornwall’s rugged north coast. Inextricably linked with the legend of King Arthur, for centuries this dramatic castle and coastline has fired the imaginations of writers, artists!
The granite rocks that are dotted across the beach are, according to legend, stepping stones for the Giant Bedruthan. Last time I was here with my best man AJ on our Stad do epic drive the tide was low and the beach was huge! we climbed some of the steps but as you can tell from the photos, This time the feel was a tad different!
St Michael’s Mount:
St Michael’s Mount is a small tidal island in Mount’s Bay, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. The island is a civil parish and is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between mid-tide and low water. On a spring tide, the causeway can be up to 20ft below the waterline!
