Could you live in Poldark country and help Ross Poldark with his weeding? And then you’ll have to pick a boat - the paddle boat, motorboat or the rowing boat? Ahh decisions, decisions. Sadly the final series of the hugely successful telly series is almost over, but we can bathe our tears away in these crisp, clear waters of stunning St Ives, Cornwall - captured here by @a_cornish_life
You may also recognise Cornwall from the other hugely popular TV show, Doc Martin. Beauty does come at a price, however (unlike me...I'm available for personal tours for just £2.95p and a stack of scones). A few years ago a car park space went on the market in this area for a whopping £51,950! ($63,000) That's a bit daft isn't it? Just a small space to park a car. Personally I would buy a bike and use the rest of the money on various sized sponge cakes. With a rich and varied history, St Ives hosts a great variety of architectural delights, including an old English inn which is over 700 years old! The Sloop Inn dates back to ‘circa 1312’ and is one of the oldest surviving public houses in Cornwall, possibly in the United Kingdom. But much like a fisherman with their tall tales, it's difficult to know if this is 100% true!
And yes... I have to end a post about St Ives by mentioning the famous riddle... "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives, Each wife had seven sacks, Each sack had seven cats, Each cat had seven kits: Kits, cats, sacks, and wives, How many were there going to St. Ives.....?"... lovely shot by @a_cornish_life 🇬🇧 Want to be featured?
