This post was originally intended for the beginning of the week but a couple of others got in the way.
Last Monday my wife Lorraine and I spent a couple of hours in the fishing port of Mevagissey in the North East of the County, Mevagissey is about 7 miles East of the town of St Austell and as well as being a busy fishing port is also a popular tourist destination. The first two images were taken just outside the village of Pentewan Sands and show part of St Austell Bay and the beach camp site, the rest are from Mevagissey.

Sunny if you read this I hope it brings back some memories.



  1. I have to admit these pictures brought tears to my eyes, not only because they're beautiful shots but I suddenly got overwhelmed with homesickness.
    I spent many days in Mevagissey with my dear Grandmother and Aunt.
    Thanks so much for the memories :)
