Looe, Cornish Fishing Village, UK

Good to see you. Thanks for coming to my blog. This edition shows photos of a small Cornish fishing village called Looe. It is a typical Cornish picturesque village and is located on the South coast of Cornwall, not far from Plymouth. There are many others in Cornwall.

It was cloudy and raining in the morning but after lunch the sun came out so I managed to get some sunny shots!

Cream tea, tiddy oggies (Cornish pasties), fudge and lovely pubs are some of the delights of Cornwall.

This first picture is Daniela and myself.

I have just got back from Delhi India. I went
there for work and also had three days being
the tourist. Lots of photos to share with you
so do come back!

Nelson the seal adopted Looe and became a
famous citizen of Looe. He only had one eye,
hence the name Nelson. He died in 2003.
Now he is permanently on the banks of the
river Looe for people to remember him.
