My Sunday Photo - April 17th 2106


England ...
Cornwall ...
Boscastle ...
A village nearly destroyed by terrible floods in 2004.
A village once again thriving on tourism and the lobster trade.
Small industry keeping a small village alive in 2016.

  1. Love the history behind the picture. I love Cornwall, hoping to get there later in the year.

    1. It was my first trip to Cornwall in 14 years and I loved it. I remember seeing about the floods on the news, as they happened 2 years after we were in the area. Thank goodness no-one was killed and the only loss was one poor dog. It could have been so much worse. The grocer's shop shows the water height at it's peak and it was at ceiling level.

  4. It's pleasing to hear that a small industry is thriving in this town; fishing ports are so interesting and fun places to take photos.
