So on the way home, I decided to waste a bit of time down at Lelant Estuary, another place for various reasons I've spent a lot of my time. When I was young I used to walk around the decaying wrecks of the old boats mixed in with working fleet sheltering for the winter. When I grew up I then laid up my boat here for the winter as the St.Ives boats had for hundreds of years before me.
Sadly that is now to be no more as a multinational has bought the surrounding areas and wish to change years of tradition. The skeletons of a bygone era are to be removed and the St.Ives fleet dispersing elsewhere for the winter months.
For now, until this happens this is still a fantastic place, at low tide it has old ship wrecks to look at and miles of shore to walk along in the peace and quiet, at high tide the pond like water gives an amazingly peaceful outlook.
The tide was in when I arrived.
