Cornwall in April **~**

We had a wonderful time in Cornwall, visiting some of our favourite places.
Views across from Fowey (pronounced Foy rhymes with joy) over to Polruan. Fowey is very special to us, as it is where we got married!
Readymoney Beach is a small cove at the far end of Fowey
Daphne Du Maurier's home, in 1940s(so very pretty it looks straight out to the cove)
A peep through the trees to the garden
Path back to the town
Views to "Frenchmans Creek"
Out to sea
Afternoon Tea in the Dwelling House Tearooms
A few of the lovely shops in Fowey *~*
Daymer Bay, Trebetherick (such a pretty place)
We walked to St Enodoc Church
A beautiful little church which had to be dug out of the sand dunes!
Parts of it date back to the 12th century
Pretty wool tapestry Prayer Hassocks
Sir John Betjeman and his parents are buried here
Views across the sea
You can see why it is very popular for Weddings!
Back to Lostwithiel and this is our favourite restaurant (small and intimate) but this trip we had one of these instead......
Yummy !!!

  1. What a beautiful place. I have been feeling SO homesick for Devon today - I think its been the gails and torrential rain (lol I miss it!). Can't wait to sell our house and return home. Lily. xxx

  3. Oh, Thea: Thank you so much for taking me along on your trip. Simply beautiful places to see and visit. I was going to say that I bet the little church is a great wedding destination. My mom had books by Daphne du Maurier and I read some of them. I think I have at least one in my bookcase now..Thanks for sharing your wonderful time, Thea..Happy Sunday..Judy

  4. С большим интересом совершила это маленькое путешествие, разглядывая на снимках все детали. Мне очень понравилось! У нас есть книги Дафны дю Морье, я их читала. Особенно запомнилась "Ребекка".
    Счастья вам и удачи!

  5. Lovely photos, it looks like you had better weather than we had over the weekend in Yorkshire. I've never been to Fowey, perhaps this year.
