Crowdy Reservoir view

I went for a walk in Bude yesterday. There was a market on the Quay there and on one of the stalls there was a nice chap - John Worth Photography -  selling items featuring his own photos, from cards and calendars to mounted prints.

A beach morning

The only time I can be on the beach at Crackington Haven during the summer is on a Sunday morning when the weekly beach clean takes place. A dog ban during the high tourist season means that I can't walk Gwynnik along the shore there during the week now, so my wife and I take… Continue reading A beach morning

Cornish landscape colours

A clapper bridge is a simple form of construction used since medieval times, in this case it is built out of the plentiful granite slabs placed over some solid piers.

Ludon Valley, Crackington Haven

I have posted some pictures from East Woods before and it turns out, although I got that name from the signpost pointing the way to it, that I should be calling it Ludon Valley. Now people from the Crackington area won't be scratching their heads wondering where the heck the place I said I walked… Continue reading Ludon Valley, Crackington Haven
