SW England

A Tour of Cornwall

Today we took a driving tour of Cornwall.

We started by heading on backcountry lanes to Porpero and beyond. We took a funky little car ferry across an inlet at Fowey. We quickly realized that if we continued on the very narrow, wonderfully scenic lanes, it was going to take us 140 years to circle Cornwall.

We continued on to Helston on more major roads, where we stopped for a coffee. Then on to Land’s End, the SW tip of England. We drove along the coast in a misty drizzle, which added to the ambience. At one point we stopped at some old mine workings - this area was historically famous for its tin mines.

We continued on to St. Ives, a pretty little seaport. We continued northward, through the old mining towns of Camborne, Reduth, and St. Day, where some of Jim’s ancestors originated.

We then returned to Looe, and went out for Sunday roast dinner.
