  1. Birds, boats, reflections and splashes of red – oh, and a lichen roof. What more does a photo need to be wonderful?

      I do like a pretty harbour scene, though it was a little chilly here with the sun going down so we didn’t hang around for long.

    This was always my Mum’s favourite place on our holidays to Cornwall. Good to see it hasn’t changed that much.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Good pubs, nice little cafés and ice-cream shops. Very quiet on this evening, but I bet it is chokka in summer.

    Awesome photo. Where it is?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just south of St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall and close to the Lost gardens of Heligan.

    I would hate to say how many years have passed since I was last here. The harbour was always the treat, and you’ve done it proud here. And from this view at least, it looks as if not too much has changed recently. Lovely.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Last here in 2006 I think and it looks the same. Not sure much can be altered around the harbour, but maybe there are some new houses on the cliffs.

      1. Tish Farrell says:

        That figures – the new houses that is.

    I nearly moved into a flat in Mevagissey when I first came to Cornwall but it was right on the harbour and decided that on summer evenings, with the place swarming with tourists enjoying a drink or two, it might be a little more lively than I’d have liked. I love visiting though. This is a smashing photograph Jude. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Adrian. It was very quiet on this evening, but I can imagine what it must be like in summer.

    This is so lovely Jude! I can almost smell the sea air.

    1. Heyjude says:

      And feel that stiff breeze?

  7. Sue says:

    A place I have no memory of, but I have been as a child

    1. Heyjude says:

      One of those traditional little fishing villages with narrow streets and a pretty harbour. Close to the Lost Gardens of Heligan so probably busy in the summer months.

      1. Sue says:

        But nice in Oct/Nov?

        1. Heyjude says:

          Quiet and I suspect a lot of the shops close. They do in St Ives.

        2. Sue says:

          Ah, sensible!

  8. Even though it’s slightly overcast, this cheerful image made me smile when I saw it. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      A little cloudy by then and the sun about to set so the light wasn’t great. Glad it brought a smile to your face.

    Lovely shot. I have been trying to decide about our visit to Cornwall next year. We have great flexibility. When do you think would be the best time to visit?

    1. Heyjude says:

      What a question! It depends whether you like crowds or not and what your interests are. I would avoid our school holidays as accommodation is more expensive and roads are busy. Early spring is nice for the gardens, June can be nice for the beaches, September is quieter but the weather can go either way. Before we moved here we almost always came down in April.

      1. Elizabeth says:

        Thanks. I will find out when the school holidays take place and try to avoid them. We do usually travel in September and are not troubled by rain and clouds.

  10. It’s starting to look a bit wintery, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I think that’s just the light – this was taken around sunset on my birthday which was really quite warm.

      1. Hmmmm, I think the concept of warmth is a relative thing. 🙂
