A Holiday in Cornwall for Hitty Patience & Moana - Part Two

Hitty Moana & I enjoyed St Ives and especially the museum we went into where we saw all sorts of fascinating history on St Ives.  Within the museum were lots of cats to recognise the part cats have played within the history of St Ives as well which brings to mind the rhyme....

As I was going to St Ives
I met a man with seven wives
Every wife had seven sacks
Every sack had seven cats
Every cat had seven kits
Kits, cats, sacks, wives.

We especially enjoyed the doll collection display and would dearly have loved to have taken a photograph or two, but unfortunately no photography was allowed.  Our person had hoped to have found a Cornish carved wooden doll in the style they used to make (there were several originals on display in the museum) but sadly there didn't seem to be any of those sorts of handcrafts available.

The following day we went to Tintagel Castle.  My what a climb that was!

We took plenty of opportunity to rest.  Hitty Moana here is enjoying the little dainty flowers.

We were fascinated by the formation and colouration of the rocks...

Most of all though we enjoyed taking in the sea view together with our thoughts.

The views really were spectacular (and if you want to see more you can find them here)

So awe inspiring.  Hitty Moana wondered whether it was possible to see New Zealand from here...

I had to explain just how far away it was so very unlikely indeed!

  1. Lovely photos! How neat to have a natural "porthole" among the rocks! St. Ives is a beautiful place. I would have loved to see photos of the doll display as well. The museums here are the same way about anyone taking photos. If they see a camera, they ask you to leave it at the front desk and pick it up on your way out.


Hi welcome to our Hitty World. We love to read comments so please feel free to make one. Have a good day.
