People who live in Cornwall have a lot of Pride. I think it’s kind of like the Texas of England because they always want to break off from England and be their own country. Except it’s way more naturally gorgeous than most parts of Texas. The names of the places seem like another world–Penzance, for example. Full of crashing waves and sunshine. And sunburned brits. Just look up pictures of Land’s End. No wonder writers and painters alike are so inspired by it.
It does take ages to get there, though. We had to take a few days off and even then we only visited the northern part of the place. But the beaches are sandy! Such a nice change from the pebbly, pokey beaches of Southern England. I finally put on a swimsuit and actually got into the water. I love swimming and the ocean–but I do have some soft, un-calloused feet.
A few brave snorkelers / divers brave the cold, choppy waters (even in summer!) and I get an epic picture out of it all.
