Fishing Boats

Fishing boats in the harbour of St. Ives, Cornwall. I’ve always thought these type of fishing boats seem really dainty. The only way I’d be going out in one would be to go to the local bay when it was flat calm – and I like a bit of fishing too. The harbour wall, or beach/strand is about my limit.

Kerdroya

On a walk I spotted this by the coastal path. At first I thought it to be one of those wall retainer gizzmos to stop the wall from buckling. But clearly it is marked by a rather unique pattern. Turns out to be a labyrinth, which is a symbol used by a community biassed group for the creation and maintenance of Cornish hedges – referred to by the name of Kerdroya.
