Boat Friday

 

Sometimes we're lucky and get to revisit a special place.

This is in the opposite direction at Charlestown harbor, Cornwall, England,

from when we were there last September (below).

That is very nice. The people give a good sense of scale.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. The people mdo give nice scale.
I think that this is the place with a very good fish restaurant Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I don't know about that, Chad, but I would doubt it, since the Poldark show is partly filmed there.
Je préfère la deuxième photo où on voit la sortie du port.
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see it from both sides, Martine, but I like the second image better, too, from last year.

This is a wonderful image, Ginnie...I can hear you treading water as you play with the manual focus... smile
Ginnie Hart: This harbor has a wonderful breakwater, Ray, which is part of its charm. No wonder part of the Poldark series is filmed there! (Manual??? What is that???? smile I only ever use Apereture/Shutter Priority.)
i like both images Ginnie... i would have a hard rime launching my boat on such a sharp incline into the sea....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It would be fun to see how they do it, Peter, but I can imagine it might be tricky.
Both are really wonderful - I love how the top shot shows how STEEP the jetty is!!
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it's fun to see the different faces, Elizabeth, isn't it! Thank you.

It is amazing that the tide is about the same in both pictures and there are quite some months in between each picture. This is such a wonderful port and Poldark 'followers' might recognize it... Beautiful pictures.

Ginnie Hart: I felt so lucky to come into the harbor this time from the other direction to get a different view, Astrid. No wonder the Poldark series has been partly filmed there.

A charming tourist haunt Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: And not overly tourist-ed the two times we were there, Chris!

One day I hope to see this glorious scene for myself. It seems to be one of the few harbours that still retain the image of Cornwall of old with the sailing ships, fishing boats and pirates!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Alan. It's become quite the spot for TV crews, like for Poldark, as you know.

This is an interesting subject to compare places at different times - there are some cchanges, but the general look might be the same. In these turbulent times we long for some stability.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine...a good point. I guess we keep coming back to what anchors us?!
i like the pictures, no actual boats lol... the boat launch is kinda skinny!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elaine. By the zig-zag of the harbor's entrance, I'm guessing only the skinny boats are welcome?
It is well worth a re-visit. Lovely place
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Bill, and thanks.
That's what I call a genuine Cornish harbour, sadly I've been close to Charlestown, ie.St.Austell, Pentewan and Mevagissey, but never actually made a visit to this delightful harbour, one day perhaps.
Ginnie Hart: You'll love it, Brian, if you ever get there. In the meantime, I'm glad to show it to you. smile
What a cool boat slip, all surrounded by stone.
Ginnie Hart: Makes you sure about having a sturdy boat, Mary, in case you get whipped about.

Not a lot of people to be seen. Looks a nice safe harbour.
Ginnie Hart: Both times we were there, Louis, it was not too touristy, in spite of its Poldark fame.
i like both but i think i prefer the top one slightly more, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. It's fun for me to see the different perspective on the same spot, something we should probably pay attention to more often?

It looks lovely Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. It was! smile
There are some lovey places in Cornwall, I must take my good wife one day.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Frank. You should! smile
Aww.. the weather is still the same thou! wink

Come back again when the sun is out! I will buy you some ice cream. smile
Ginnie Hart: Can I hold you to that, LC????
Looks like a sturdy fishing village!
Ginnie Hart: Definitely a sturdy port, Tom. Not sure about the fishing part?
I can so understand a re-visit! Love the area!
Ginnie Hart: There's something about England...and Cornwall in particular. Kinda like how I feel about New England in the States!

Lovely perspective smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. The whole place is love, coming and going!
I can tell much has changed...smile
Ginnie Hart: Actually, NOT much has changed at all, Larry, and maybe that's what you meant?!
