The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Mevagissey - The town and port

I think from what I've read on my ABC Wednesday Y entry there are a lot of Bloggers out there who originate from Cornwall or intend to visit in the future.

So here are a few more pictures -

If you go to Cornwall do not forget to have a Cornish Cream Tea - this consists of a pot of tea plus large warm scones - butter , thick clotted cream and strawberry jam  - plus 1000's of calories !!

There are many narrow streets like these - OK for smugglers in days of old but not if you have a 4 x 4.

Lighting the way into the harbour - lots of anglers ..

Crane available should you need to take your boat out of the harbour ..

Lots of little houses rising above the harbour ..

Swans on the move .. wonder if they are residents ? or are they summer visitors from the Steppes of Russia ?

I doubt that I ever make it to Cornwall -- not that I wouldn't like to visit, mind you -- but enjoyed your mini-tour of the city.

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
