We've been away ...

We've been away to Cornwall.  Staying in the lovely village of Phillack, near Hayle in West Cornwall.
We had some fantastic weather and some awful weather.
Just a few shots of a very pleasant time.
 Above is St Piala's Well, or St Phillack's well.
This is a traditional holy well which was abandoned until 1993, when it was restored by the Hayle Old Cornwall Society and reconsecrated.
St Phillack's Church in the village.
 The George V Memorial Walk alongside the Hayle Estuary is listed as sub-tropical.
The amazing blooms on this cactus proves it!!
 Amazing 'mediterranean-type' views from The Bluff Inn, Hayle, across to St Ives.
 The local pub 'The Bucket of Blood'!

Grandchildren loved the 'goryness' of the name and sign and have done some gory drawings for their parents!
We also had some very rough weather, but more of that later
