I remember, as a teenager, getting quite wrapped up in the Poldark book series written by Winston Graham. There's twelve books in the whole series and I may not have read them all but I did enjoy the evolving saga.
The storiy, set along the rugged coastline of Cornwall, was enough to make me hope to visit there one day and last week Linda and I made it and what a treat it was.
The above picture was taken at Church Cove where the shipwreck was filmed in the latest TV series..
Charlestown, another area where filming took place gave us more of that dramatic coastline.
No trip to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to Lands End:-
Along the way, we stopped at places like Truro and Penzance, not too bad to fulfill all that in one day traveling from Plymouth.
Winston Graham obviously loved the Cornwall area and it stole a little bit of my heart too.
