We popped into Port Issac on our way back to base during our recent holiday in Cornwall, and what a delight it was. Here are a few photos of our visit, if you find yourself in the area I would recommend having a look around.
On our recent holiday in Cornwall we happened upon the fishing harbour village of Polperro. It was a great location for taking some photographs and having a mooch around. Here are some of the images taken, on what turned out to be a glorious day. There is a map at the bottom of this post with its location, if you fancy giving it a visit.
On a recent visit to Cornwall, we had the pleasure of stopping in the picturesque village of Polruan beside the river Fowey, just a short journey across the river is Fowey which is also featured on this page. Well worth a visit, but just be warned, the roads are very steep and if you struggle with mobility it is not the easiest of terrains to deal with. There’s a map at the bottom if you’d like to check it out.
There is a mixture of SLR photographs and phone camera photographs included on this page.
When we’re not working, we like to spend our leisure time walking and visiting new places. We thought it might be of some value to our website visitors to include our day out photos on the blog to inspire families to get out and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We’ve also included a map of the location of our visit, to make it easier to find.
So hope you enjoy this resource by simply following the places to visit link
We had a walk around Jumbles Country park today, which is just a stones through from where I spent part of my childhood. Between the ages of 5 and 10 years old I lived in Bromley Cross and have fond memories of the area. It’s only the second time I’ve been to Jumbles, the first time being a couple of years ago.
During that first visit, I’d had a funny experience. Jumping back in time, as a 9 year old me and a friend managed to persuade a local newspaper shop owner to give us a job delivering newspapers, but because we were under 10 years old at the time, we could do it only if we did it together. Now I have a strong memory of a country lane me and this friend used to deliver newspapers on, because it had no street lights, and it was always dark because we did the job during the winter months after school, some of the houses were quite secluded and scary in the dark, from a 9 year old’s point of view anyway.
Now jump forwards 39 years, having walked around Jumbles country park, I was completely unaware it would bring me back on to the very same lane (at the back of the park) that I’d delivered papers on all those years before. I hadn’t actually ever seen the place during the daytime, yet I had a strong sense of deja vous as we came onto the lane from Jumbles, and I said to my wife, “I wonder if this is the lane?” I felt a need to walk further down to see if it would bring me to Turton railways station, which it surely did. A very strange experience for me at the time, but it was great to rekindle some of those old memories again.
Anyway here are a few images from our most recent visit that we took using our phone camera …
