Lobster pots

Crab and lobster pots are everywhere in this part of Cornwall but historically pilchards were fished in their millions off the coast with six pilchard fisheries operating in Cadgwith during the 1800s.

Cadgwith Cove

A grey walk along the coast path from Poltesco to Cadgwith with the sea roiling in the coves and around Terrick Rock.  All quiet with the fishing boats in Cadgwith harbour.

Mullion Cove

We walked out along the harbour wall at Mullion and chatted to a chap who had been part of the coastguard team for years, with his golden retriever, Melyn (Cornish for yellow) who was bouncing around while my greyhound just stood and barely noticed her.  Waves were crashing into the rocky cliffs with spray coming over parts of the harbour walls.

Lavenham

A weekend spent at the Swan Hotel in Lavenham.  Staying in the ‘Harry Potter Room’ under the stairs with lots of laughter and exquisite food.  Deluges of rain but some bursts of sunshine.
