The story behind this video

For our holiday in the summer of 2019 my wife Liz and I decided to explore the beautiful countryside and coasts of Devon and Cornwall in the southwest of England.

Based near Bude, most of our time was spent driving around the stunning coastal locations on the north coast, but we did spend a couple of days venturing further south to have a look at the pretty fishing villages and towns along the south Cornwall coast.

Liz remembered holidaying there as a child with her parents, now desceased, and wanted to re-visit the region to see how much had changed.

The answer was - not much!

The old fishing ports we visited still retained much of their olde worlde charm and friendliness, together with a remnant of their original fishing fleets.

One fishing village in particular lodged in my heart as it was so photogenic and peaceful, and that was Mevagissey, featured in this video showing the looking seawards over the harbour and lighthouse on an evening of flat calm.

In fact, we liked Mevagissey so much that we made a second trip later in the holiday in order to walk around the harbour and shoot some more time lapse video.

Mevagissey is certainly one place I would be happy to go back to for a longer stay sometime.
