St Ives

Black Friday, that's what the traffic agencies call the Friday at the beginning of the autumn half term. Our journey to St Ives took five and a half hours instead of our usual four or less.

My mother lives on the outskirts of St Ives with views over the bay towards Godrevy Lighthouse. It's a fabulous place to be with great views, wonderful walking on cliffs and moors and the art tradition means that there are dozens of galleries in the area.

This was to be a generally relaxed weekend with meals out (Ocean Grill and Porthminster Cafe) and much walking the dog on the beach.
The Hayle Estuary is one area where we can walk the dog on the beach all year, the water is always these fabulous shades of blue and the sand silvery. This is one of the areas often painted by John Miller.
