Moving Porthleven


Porthleven panorama

I want to go back and have another look at Porthleven. I want to go back in this entry and I want to go back.

Our cottage is on the road that leads out of the village above the cliffs to the west. Between the cottage and the sea is only a narrow road that has wound up from the harbour, past the Ship Inn and then on to the cottage - The Lookout. From the cottage the view includes the Atlantic and the long wall of the outer harbour. From the road it is possible to see the coast sweeping up towards the Lizard, the Fishermen's Institute that always gets mistaken for a church and then round into the harbour with it's row of Edwardian terraces.

It is peaceful place, even with the waves in the aftermath of a winter's storm.

If you have Quicktime and some patience (8.5MB) click here to view video.

Cornwall awaits you... You're right, and it's not just Porthleven, there are so many damn beautiful places and experiences here in Cornwall. It's unfortunate to be so far away in Oz, wishing you were here. Love the sketches, will be visiting your blog again. Keep on blogging...and dreaming of Cornwall, one day, maybe you'll be back.
