We spent a week or so touring Cornwall, the sunniest and warmest part of England. You can read about it here. It’s a very beautiful county, real picture-postcard stuff. Good beaches and lots of fishing villages.

This is Polperro today.

This Adonis is me. I was always skinny but I have a hunch this may have been shortly after I completed my year-long sojourn in hospital.

We visited Tintagel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur.  This is a recent picture of the area.

In Mevagissey, we went fishing.

This is how the port looks today.

Finally, we went to Land’s End. This is the most southwesterly tip of England. A must-see for tourists. I read there is now a theme park at the site. That sent shudders down my spine…

You can almost see Costa Rica and Panama in the distance…

During the holiday, we bought this skull cap and covered it with badges and ribbons of all the places we visited. More family heirlooms will be appearing on the blog in the future…
