Wandering Penzance

Today was a totally free day for me so I took advantage of the glorious weather happening here and set out wandering around the town of Penzance. I brought no timelines or maps on my walk today. My only agenda was getting pleasantly lost in the cobweb of streets and producing lots of photos.

Here then, is just a little of what I experienced today in the charismatic little town of Penzance in Cornwall:

Along The Seashore

Breakfast Time

I stopped for a full English Breakfast at a kitschy restaurant called “The Smuggler’s Den Penzance”. Call me crazy but I think there may be a theme going on here:

The Streets Of Penzance


Cornish pasties!
I found this “can-can” girl in someone’s back yard

Morrab Gardens

This is the view that greets you when stepping out of my guest house

Jubilee Pool

Penzance has an awesome pool right beside the sea called Jubilee Pool. Interesting concept:

St. Mary the Virgin Church, Penzance

The slowly setting evening sun threw some nice light on the church, its gravestones and statues:

The Abbey Warehouse

Penzance’s Winding Lanes And Stone Cottages

The sun set just after the last of these shots were taken. Penzance really rolls up its streets after about 6:00PM and it gets eerily quiet, with not a lot of people around.

This is my last night at the lovely, cozy Warwick House. Tomorrow I relocate to the Artist Residence to meet my photo group. That hotel will be our group’s Penzance base for the next five days while we tour up and down the rugged Cornwall coasts.

Stay tuned for more Cornwall adventures.

Over and out for Thursday.
