Artist's Description

Road Home. (Captured 3/12/08)

This is one of the roads that joins Helston to Mullion. (Cornwall UK).

I always take this one because as I round the corner (behind the camera) I am confronted by this wonderful view, followed by a happy emotional boost and of course I know I am nearly home. Just a few minutes from wife, children and good friends.

All that has changed now and I live alone some twenty miles away. But I still visit friends in Mullion from time to time and coming round that bend still offers up its magic.

Many a tourist when rounding the bend for the first time suddenly apply the brakes usually resulting in a toot from a local in a following car.

It is Poldhu Cove. Poldhu translated from the Cornish means Blackpool. Mainly I think because there used to be a large pool in the centre of the beach. It was fed by a stream at low tide and by the sea at high tide.

However, for four hundred years local farmers held a charter that allowed them to remove sand each year to spread on their land. In recent times the beach displayed more rocks than sand. Even more recently mostly rocks that persisted all the year round.

The charter was cancelled a couple of years ago and joy the beach recovered and now it is sandy and inviting.
