Here is a nostalgic page about my lovely Cornwall, with images taken over the last decade.
Penzance is a “Floating Harbour” with lock gates that open at high-water twice a day.
Wherever you are in Cornwall you are never that far from the water, whether stunning harbours, beautiful coves or my favourite of all waters, tidal creeks off serpentine estuaries lined with oak trees and populated by hundreds of birds.
St Clements is near Truro, but is a world away from the hustle and bustle.
Early morning high tide on the River Lyner, St. Germans
Please enjoy these (slightly chocolate-box) images and be inspired to visit a glorious area of breathtaking beauty. Cornish industry has declined, and so tourism is perhaps more important than ever.

Cove boats await the tide at Cadgwith.
Polperro – a tourist honeypot!
Pemberth Cove, near Treen is unspoiled and well off the tourist trail.
“Cornish lads are fishermen,
Cornish lads are miners too,
But when the tin and fish are gone,
What are Cornish lads to do?”
