Backfill #2

Copenhagen Summer Jazz Festival was again blessed with (fairly) good weather and, although my stay was only a short one, I took in lots of concerts in several very different venues

Then it was back home and straight down to Cornwall where, again, we were spoilt with 5 days of lovely weather and gloriously relaxing places to visit, eat and drink.

That’s a shot from Smeaton’s Pier at dusk as they’re landing the lobsters.

I can recommend all of these:

Porthmeor Beach Café [book a booth well in advance and watch the sun go down)

The Mex

The Seafood Cafe

Peppers Pasta & Pizzaria

The Firehouse Bar & Grill - they say they have >240 gins available and I actually believe them. I asked for one of my favourites, Sacred Gin, not widely known outside London. They replied “Which one would you like?” Impressive. Book a window table upstairs and watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks - oh, wait, that was last year (and will be again this year as it happens).

We found the Lost Gardens of Heligan - they are about an hour’s drive from St. Ives and so worth a visit.

I’ll add a bit more about Cornwall in the next post.
