Prussia Cove late autumn 2018.
Prussia Cove have some amazing views created by weather, nature and former inhabitants here. To clarify, once upon a time, the Carter family ruled the roost and were known as the ‘King of Prussia’. Easterly views from the beach towards Praa Sands, Porthleven and The Lizard across Mounts Bay are scenic. Walking around amongst the old buildings is likewise fascinating! Certainly the slate walls are more common further north in Cornwall but used extensively here too.
The first Cove after the car park is Bessies Cove. It forms part of Prussia Cove.
In the photo you can see the water is proper churned and frothy. We were a day or so prior to storm Diana arriving and winds had picked up!
As regards to the Carters, it is great to see the old passages when the tide is out. This is a hole into granit wall, man-size, which no doubt served the family well in the industrious endeavours.
Storm Diana at Praa Sands.
I went through Praa Sands as storm Diana was passing and caught a small glimpse of the malevolent skies.
Sun rays shining through the dark clouds and bringing a little light to the waves below. In this weather my photos look nearly black and white. Certainly looked atmospheric from my window. Winds were gusting up to 60 mph outside!
Wild strawberries in November.
Walking the dog today, 30th November 2018, I glanced in a garden in Breage and found this.
Yes, in short, you are quite right! Wild strawberries ripening in our mild climate here in Cornwall.
