As I Was Going To St Ives...

St Ives is one of my most favourite places.
I had an hour or two to wander around alone,
here's a few snapshots of this and that.
I love the colour of the sea when it's a bit mean and moody.
I know it's naughty, but I can't help but stare at the gorgeous cottages.
Loved this little graffitied dog.
I managed to do some sketching too, drawing the people queuing at the beach front chippy...
All in all, a perfect morning...


  1. Ooh haven't visited St Ives for twenty years !

  2. So glad you enjoyed my snapshots chuck.

I'd love to hear your thoughts, just a minute and I'll put the kettle on.
Custard cream or bourbon?
