Another fabulous day in Cornwall, which is not part of England. Perhaps like us, you thought it was? Cornwall is not officially or constitutionally a part of England, but is a separate racial minority in the UK recognised by the EU. Apparently this separation was recognised in 1215 at the signing of the Magna Carta ( just in case you want to know more).
The first view over St Ives is taken from the Tate Gallery cafe through the glass, which helps to cut the cold winds! St Ives was home of an innovative modern art movement in the 20th C, including sculptor Barbara Hepworth. At her museum we loved seeing the studio …
which looked as though she was just about to walk back in ….
The small idyllic garden contained many of her works, surprisingly tactile and attractive.
Our friends asked us to stand inside one sculpture for a photo …
which was lovely really!
The rain stayed off, just one burst splashing through an open car window as I tried to take a photograph, causing us to laugh! Tomorrow the plan is to go out to St Michael's Mount and no rain is forecast.
