Photo Story #1

Hello sweets,

I've decided to start a photo series called Photo Story, which will be a weekly post where I post a photo or two with my recollections about where/when they were taken. Snoskred came up with the idea of doing a Wordless Wednesday/Silent Sunday type post to free me up with some time and take the pressure of myself, but I'm the kind of person who wants background when I read those kind of posts myself. I've taken thousands of photos over the years, most of which have never been shown, so it's a no-brainer that they should see the light of day here.

These two photos were taken in Porthleven, near Helston in 2010 when James and I were on holiday with his parents. His granddad died last year but his nan still lives in Cornwall and we go to visit when we can. Neither of us could remember which town this was taken in, so I enlarged the photo, saw the pub by the harbour and searched 'The Ship Inn Cornwall'. I expected there to be hundreds of entries, but hit pay dirt on the second try.

We'd driven up a steep, narrow hill (much to his dad's displeasure, as it was terrifyingly steep) to find a pub to have lunch, but it was rather full and expensive to boot so we had a drink and left. I snapped these photos just before we got back into the car. I think we may have actually had lunch in the Ship Inn itself, which is apt since it was the key to locating where these photos were taken.

Cornwall has a special place in my heart. I've been going since my early 20s and have visited around 10 times, including on our honeymoon, so there might just be some more Cornwall photos in another Photo Story to come.

Thanks for reading.
Leah xoxo
