St Ives

By TrevBatWCC    
Well, another year older today 😬 Wondering what to upload, I decided on an image from my last holiday to St Ives in Cornwall from back in 2016, and this one never got to see EPZ. I had hoped to be returning here today for a few days holiday. Following my Christmas holiday being cancelled at the last minute because of new Covid restrictions, I rearranged for the money paid out for it to pay for a week here. But alas, it wasn't to be, again because of restrictions, and this got cancelled too. As yet I do not feel inclined to book another holiday for it to be cancelled again. It's harder getting away on a coaching holiday too, as being amongst strangers social distancing is much more difficult than if youíre a family going away in a car, so things will have to change a lot before I go anywhere.
Anyway, this view is looking across the entrance to St Ives' harbour and towards Porthminster Beach. The hotel Iíve stayed in (and would have been staying this week) is smack in the middle of this image halfway up the hill, just above that green leaf-covered wall.

Many thanks to Dave (HobbitDave), Sylvia (Sylviwhalley), Bobby (BobbyMS), Joline, Tony (smut01) and Lory for their User Awards on my previous upload, The Treehouse , most appreciated 🏆👍

I do like the inclusion of the lamp post as a full stop. And you have someone pointing the way! Delightful.

Happy Birthday Trev Smile

Not that I have ever been to St Ives, you understand, but I get the impression that its layout and aspect have a similarity with Whitby. So one day I might go there after all!

Happy Birthday Trev!

I agree, don't give up on holidays, we all need something to look forward to, it is frustrating though.
We had a holiday cancelled too but it has been rearranged and keeping everything crossed.
This is a great upload of St Ives.

Happy birthday Trev - I hope you'll feel confident about going on coach tours again soon.
My friend and I are considering a trip to England from August onwards.
I loved St. Ives but we take different views - I always look for the landscape angle -
you are good with town scenes.

Happy Birthday Trev 🍰🎂🥂🍾 , hoping you have a lovely day whatever you choose to do. Lovely image of St Ives (now I've got "As I was going to St Ives" running through my head, lol) and I bet that hotel has got some lovely sea views. I think we're all now having second thoughts about where we go and what to do, not easy but.......🤔

As you were on your way to St. Ives, did you happen upon a man with seven wives?Wink

Happy Birthday Trev! Let's hope it won't be too long before things get back to near normal and we can go on holiday again.
I like your photo of St. Ives, much beloved by artists of course. The couple on the right make the image for me.

Lovely painterly feel to this image and you have pulled out all the tones and textures so well.

Do hope you have had cake, a favourite tea and a pint!

Take care and I'm crossing my fingers for that holiday for you.
