Today started out cold, rainy and windy, but undeterred I was determined to explore more of Cornwall. I decided it was time to visit the Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth museum and gardens and take a long walk. It was heaven. As a tip, you save money if you go to both museums in the same day and particularly on a Saturday.

The beach opposite the Tate here in St. Ives is expansive and a surfers paradise. It was invigorating to walk along the large expanse of Cornish sand. My walk culminating in climbing the cliffs at the far end of Porthmeor beach, which leads to St. Nicholas chapel; (ancient but now beautifully restored).

These photos are of my day out here in lovely St. Ives - I hope you enjoy them!
