This is Cornwall

Last April, during my visit to the UK, I spent a few days staying with friends in Truro, Cornwall & built on relationships formed over 40 years ago.  They were happy to show me the Cornwall they've come to know and love . . .
 
Here a fishing fleet around Cadgwick Cove
 
. . . and houses on the hillside

 
A mother and daughter enjoying nature's performance


 
and a "highly decorated" fishing boat ! 
 
A local chapel 
 
glorious panoramic coastal views 
 
Having "a thing" about contrasts, I just couldn't help but take this shot!

 
A rapeseed (or canola as we call it in Australia) crop adds a splash of colour to the landscape


 
Inside the pub where we enjoyed lunch and a wine

 
and here's the St Mawes' ferry coming in.

 
This is only a snippet of the beauty to be found in this gorgeous part of the UK.

I could imagine riding a horse along the dirt road on the cliff. Love the colourful fishing boats. - Margy

What a quaint corner of the world. When I think of Cornwall - I think of Cornish Pasties but obviously this area has much ... more to offer.

A dozen images summoning up the essence of a beautiful area. I used to go there from time to time but it gets a bit crowded in summer for my taste.

Great part of the world - just one county away from where I was born!
