I’ve been taking a short break from blogging recently so that I can take stock of where I want to go with it – if at all. To be honest I still haven’t made my mind up, but for now I thought that I would just tread water by showing you a few photos of a weekend away, pre-lockdown, in the small Cornish fishing port of Porthleven.
The pictures I’ve included show what it can be like here on a lovely day. As you can see, our day started off well and finished even better, with a beautiful sunset and a drink (or two) in the Ship – but the weather’s not always like that in Mounts Bay.
The harbour was initially built as a safe haven for sailing ships, who so often came to grief along this coastline, and the YouTube video below (courtesy of Classic Cottages) will show you why it was needed.
