As mentioned previously, the Helford River is a lovely place to visit. Very different to the coastal resorts in Cornwall. And well worth another look.
Sun shining, birds singing and blue water beckoning. We drove down to the Helford Passage and took a short ferry ride across to Helford Village.
Small boats and buoys float on the Helford River.
A narrow lane lined with hedgerows of a ghostly white mist (the delicate blossom of the blackthorn) leads from the ferry point into the village. Finches flit from one side of the lane to the other, others sing merrily in the bushes and all the while the warmth of the sun intensifies the coconut fragrance of the deep yellow gorse flowers.
