Sunday - a day in Porthleven for Lifeboat Day

 Beautiful day, we drove to the top end of Porthleven and parked. We walked the dogs a little way along the Penrose walk then made our way into Porthleven
 The amazing engine houses and chimneys of the Trewavas Mine, still clinging on to the cliffs
 We were amazed when we first saw these fairly new houses hanging over the cliff edge - gather they have problems and want to try to shore up the cliff
 We rather like these modern versions of the old miners cottages.
 Goodness knows what they are doing to the old Tye Rock Hotel - gather they want to build an extension as well as all this work
 We had several lovely holidays, both Easter and Autumn in the little cottage on the right called Salt Spray.
 Sea looking much better than the Olympic diving pool
 One of the two gig that rowed up and down the harbour
 Me and my pal Wooster, who was looking over the wall enjoying watching the lifeboats while I took the photos

 All three lifeboats alongside the harbour while the crews took a reast and had some refreshment
 What more could you want - a boat that doubles up as a bar - at The Ship Inn

 Spotted this Jelleyfish floating about in the harbour just as we were leaving

 When we reached Perranuthnoe, we found this couple of cars obviously keen on entering the Bad Parking Competition - parked around the end of St Piran's Way
 Some lovely colours this evening

 and a nice sunset
I will post the Lifeboat photos onto facebook and give you the link - Far too many to put on here as it's so slow
