In these difficult days we have been spending more time on-line dreaming about where we would rather be than at home. Even for those of us based in Cornwall, we have been limited to where we can go until recently.
Which is why webcams have become so popular. I for one, had my second screen fixed on Mullion Cove for a few weeks at the start of lockdown, watching the tide roll out and roll in, the sun catching the island, or setting behind it, the occasional dog walker joining the lonely gull on the beach.
All around the coast of Cornwall you will come across churches with maritime connections. Many of them have towers used as daymarks by sailors and fishermen to guide them safely back to harbour, others will be the resting place of those taken by the sea. They have all been and continue to be a place of sanctuary, somewhere to shelter from the storm, be it the westerly winds or the troubles in your life.
Here's a selection of religious sites going around the coast from the far north to the south eastern corner.
Cornwall is a wonderful place to live, as well as visit, and with many people wishing to enjoy Cornwall with four-legged friends, it also has a high proportion of dog ownership. Many of our valued visitors also want to enjoy Cornwall with their pets, and this is especially welcome at the quieter times of the year and shoulder seasons, when you can enjoy different aspects of Cornwall.
