We went to Cornwall for a long weekend. We set on Friday morning and took a fairly leisurely drive down to St Ives, which is a really beautiful town on the North coast right down by the tip of Cornwall. The first picture is the view we got from our room, but then - the Cornish coast is always impressive. Its a place I would like to live :)
Mind you - its windy enough down there that they have wind farms. Although I find watching the turbine blades turning fairly relaxing. I know some people hate them - but I quite like them.
On Saturday we visited Tintagel - which is an old headland castle which is slowly falling into the sea. it is reputed to be the birth place of King Arthur (he of the legends) - and it is a very atmospheric place, On the way into the village we saw a troop of traditional Morris Dancers.
Then on Sunday we came home - stopping off at Lyme Regis on the way. As we were walking along the beach promenade we saw a helicopter lifting someone off of the beach. we never did find out what it was all about.
