A day in St Ives, for "Boats in the Bay" - and lunch of course !

 We park in the car park above The Tate Gallery and walk down the steps towards Porthmeor Beach, with the usual Surf School - busy as always on a Saturday
 The RNLI Lifeguards with their rescue jet-ski
 We walked out along the Coastal Footpath which eventually leads to Zennor - as you can see it's a very dramatic and testing section of the walk - we didn't go too far
The super colours in the water due to the lovely white sand
Looking back towards Porthmeor and The Island
Super walk, so close to St Ives
 Think that this is where lots of the missing sand from Porthmeor has ended up - just round the corner
 Lovely little beach - looks rather like a small Kynance Cove
Porthmeor since the Winter storms it has a two layer beach !
 A happy smile from Jim as our food arrived at the wonderful Porthmeor Cafe - right over the beach - Jim had the Lime & Ginger Prawns and I had the Crispy Skin Sea Bass and we shared the hand cut chips with Rosemary & sea salt - well ! we needed to leave room for this ......
The main reason Jim was smiling - he'd been told that they'd got plenty of the Lemon Meringue Pie - it really is superb !


  1. Wow, that's my Husband's favourite, think we will put that on the list for our visit this week!!
    (Think I could be persuaded too). Thanks Sue for all the great photos recently, Jane.

    1. Really is good Jane. The food there is just right - not too much, but really well cooked - as for the Lemon Meringue well you can see it's a beauty and sells very fast ! Hope you have a good week down here. Sue

  2. This picture has put a lot of pressure on me !!! I have just been reminded that I haven't made one......or an egg custard for a very long time ! When the family were at home it was always a favourite .....must do better ! Had lovely F&C'S at French's award winning shop followed by an icecream from the van on the coast road at Salthouse....a real North Norfolk day.Really enjoyed the photo's ....stunning scenery.Thanks Sue. macca

    1. Jim has discovered the delights of putting a meringue top onto a Sainsbury's Tarte au Citron - mind you he broke the mixer -(that's Jim for you !) so it is turning into an expensive Meringue ! I love Egg Custard - Jim's not bothered and we usually try to steer clear of too many puddings in a week.
      Fish & Chips by the sea always taste so much better - sounds like a "grand day out "
      Really enjoy St Ives - but not the crowded bit around the Harbour - will go back again when it's a bit quieter and walk in from Carbis Bay.

  3. Lovely pics of St Ives - we stopped off there for a visit after a Scilly holiday and walked up to the church on the Island after a look round the Tate and Barbara Hepworth on a really sunny day.

    It was nice of you to share your chips with Rosemary - was she sitting on the next table ?

    Thanks for the time you devote to your blog - we really enjoy following the activities and adventures of the dogs and the ever changing views.

    Beverley and Howard White

    1. So pleased that you enjoy the blog, we love to share our photos of this beautiful part of Cornwall. We have some spare days this week and hope to get out a bit before the colder days arrive.
      Think Jim has a soft spot for Rosemary - often goes into the garden looking for her when he's cooking ! ! Sue
