TRENANCE VIADUCT, CORNWALL
Not a typical Cornwall post but ... a viaduct was first built here in 1858 and was then replaced in 1899. It's quite a construction as it has ten piers and is 115 feet (35m) high and 720 feet (220m) long.

A SHORT WALK FROM CARLYON BAY
We had a short walk this morning along the cliffs starting at Carlyon Bay Cornwall. Was a little chilly and the weather couldn't make up what it wanted to do - but it was very pleasant. Seven photos on my blog: https://mikescornwall.blogspot.com/2019/01/a-short-walk-from-carlyon-bay.html

AN 1890s PHOTO OF TINTAGEL POST OFFICE, CORNWALL
A few days back I published a post about the Tintagel Old Post Office, Cornwall. Today's photo is a street scene from about 1890 showing the very same Post Office (left of pic). The actual building dates back to the 14th century. I picked up the photo, with others, a while back at a car boot sale. It's not the clearest of pictures but shows how things once were - a bygone age.

CRASHING WAVES AT PORTMELLON, CORNWALL
The image of Cornwall is often one of golden beaches, blue skies and sunshine. At times though, the winter weather blows away more than just the cobwebs!

THANK YOU!
As the number of people is gradually dwindling, as we head towards the final days of G+, I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has visited my photos and perhaps followed me. It has been so enjoyable here and I have 'met' so many wonderful people from so many countries. Thank you for your kindness and friendship and the insights into your life with your photos. It has been very special.

I shall probably be here until the bitter end but have no plans to join a similar organisation to G+ - but you never know in life. Instead I'll try my luck with my new blog.

All good wishes to everyone,
Mike

TINTAGEL OLD POST OFFICE
Needless to say the photo was taken back in the sunny months! Tintagel Post Office is in a 14th century stone house and became a Post Office during Queen Victoria's reign.

Have a happy week!

Haven't heard of the Fitties previously. I can well imagine the wind can blow considerably - it was even quite strong all of last night in Cornwall. Lovely photos.
A grim day on the Fitties.
