Further into Poldark Country

 We drove a little further along the coast to Porthgwarra - scene of chaos over the Easter weekend as Poldark fans tried to drive down the tiny lane with passing places - I gather they had to call in the police to help get the traffic moving - didn't look like that today - lovely and peaceful
 We wanted to give the dogs a good run as they had been on the lead  all day - we passed this massive Agave(well I think it is ) growing in a garden as we walked along
 It really was extremely hot and both dogs had got really hot, so were rather pleased that this pond was as full as we have ever seen it
 In fact Wooster was so glad he had a bit of a dash about

 Longships Lighthouse with the huge band of fog behind - which was covering the Isles of Scilly all day
 Always one of our favourite views
 A closer view of Longships, with what looks like a crabber in the distance
 Gwennap Head with the NCI Station on the top (where the camera for Lands End Weather is positioned as well)
 Spring Squills in amongst the grass
 We then went down to the little cafe for refreshments - just in case you want to know - the jam goes on first ! !
 As we drove back towards Penzance I spotted the line of fog ahead
 But as we drove down Penzance Bypass The Mount was nice and clear
 But looking further there was the fog - when we got home it was a little misty.
This was the fog looming again - it got thicker during the evening, but I've just looked and it's clear again


  1. What a lovely day out you had, and with such great weather. I think that portends that we will get miserable weather when we are there in three weeks time if it is so nice now. It took us years to get to the Minack, but the views and the gardens are spectacular. The colour of the sea on a sunny day is almost unbelievable. Like you I tell our family that scones should have jam first and then cream. Isn't the other way around supposed to be what they do in Devon?

    1. Yes - Devon say cream first, doesn't make sense to me ! David Cameron was offered a scone in Devon recently and said that he knew he was in trouble, as which ever way he did it someone would say he was wrong !
      As you say it's the colours at The Minack that make it so magical, I'm sure that watching a performance on a really good day must be great. Sue

  2. Brilliant photo's once again, so pleased you took the day off. Must try and get to Minack sometime this year, it's been a while, like everything else thinking about it.Gorgeous weather up our neck of the woods yesterday, far too hot for me, looks like today is going to be the same.

    1. The weather has certainly been a bonus recently - although the fog has been rather odd and moving around all the time - except for Scilly which was quite bad for several days. I just love the gardens at The Minack amazing to see them in such an exposed spot. Do hope you manage to get a trip down West soon ! Sue

  3. What a feast ! I mean the pictures....not your scone ! you certainly had a super day .Enjoying Poldark although different to the original adaptation wonderful scenery and it's nice recognising places we have visited.Thanks to you both for a nice 'day out' macca

    1. It was really good to get out and about at long last and we made a good decision to go to The Minack and Porthgwarra as the mist and fog had hung about much longer in Mount's Bay. I also prefer the previous version of Poldark, but this one is the way they make dramas these days , short scenes and never go into too much detail in case the audience don't understand it ! Hopefully it will give Cornwall a bumper year for visitors - although we'll all complain about it ! Sue

  4. Hi,
    I've always wanted to thank you for your lovely blog, and these photos have finally inspired me to do it! One quick question re: the Minack. A year and a half ago I was there. I'm American and the drive up that last vertiginous hill on what I remember as a single track road was truly frightening! Do you have any tips for negotiating such tough spots?


    1. No tips at all I'm afraid - if I had to get there by myself I'd park at the bottom and walk up - he he ! Jim is much braver than me and has no qualms about driving up there.
      So pleased that you enjoy the photos - hopefully we will get out and about more now that Spring is here ! Sue

  5. Thanks so much for the reply. I had the pleasure of staying at Ednovean Farm and must admit to a slight disappointment in not stumbling across what seems to be the near ubiquitious Tilly and Wooster! What lucky dogs, and what lucky people to inhabit such a beautiful spot! Annette
