Trip to Cornwall
19th July to 25th July
England's West Country is a pretty spectacular place and though I love the moors of Devon, in Cornwall it's often the coast that enthrals visitors. Rugged cliffs, tiny fishing villages and secluded beaches all enchant. When we visited, the English summer was at its worst; wet, cold gusty winds. My Cousin's new home in Launceston has great views of the 11th Century Norman Castle.
We didn't just eat pasties at Padstow, but also took a rather nice stroll along the Estuary. The view here is of moth of the River Camel and the town of Rock on the opposite shore.

Adequate footwear for walking?
The pretty little fishing town and port of Boscastle. The sheltered harbour is protected by walls and steep cliffs and the village straddles the small tidal river. Summer blooms; spectacular hydrangeas better than my father could ever grow.
