after four weeks of non-stop travelling throughout Europe last year we arrived in the Cornish village of Nelwyn to stay for a whole week - bliss! this was probably the most favourite part of our trip and we rented a beautiful cottage called Cresta House. the cottage is beautifully presented with all the conveniences you need and more. our lovely host Samantha had left a delicious Cornish tea for us on our arrival.....yummy! oh for some clotted cornish cream today! my grandfather was from Cornwall and I guess that's part of the affinity I feel for this part of the UK. we relished the fresh seafood available in the village daily, wandered the tiny streets each day, bought locally at the supermarket, had coffee in the cafes, gazed at St Michael's Mount in the distance past Penzance, talked to the fishermen down on the wharf, strolled the beaches, and watched the comings and goings of the Newlyn fishing fleet from our lounge room and bedroom windows...some days I spent hours just doing that! I have loads of photos from this part of the world and here is just a small taste of them. we hope to return some day soon but in the meantime I can still watch the harbour at Laurence Hartwell's blog Through the gaps! thanks Laurence.
