This journey lingers in memory like a colorful feast. First, the Group Leaders represented Cornish charm at its best. Harvey Prescoe, managed 20 of us with style and elegance, while Pater Maxted, author of “The Natural Beauty of Cornwall” shared stories with wit & grace. High on my credits are the never-ending views of site-specific architecture. Granite fishermen’s cottages on beaches, row houses in villages, and manors, hidden in wooden parks, all speak of the peninsular’s unique geology. Everywhere we travelled, Bodmin Moor, tin and clay mines, 16th century castles brimmed with history. From Bronze Age monoliths to writers’ and artists' havens, we marveled. Virginia Woolf’s Lighthouse, Daphne DuMaurier’s Jamaica Inn, Poldark’s Engine House, and yes, Dr. Martin’s Port Issac Surgery all captured our fancy. Also exciting were 2 motor boat excursions that unexpectedly included a Falmouth Bay parade of yachts assembling for the Golden Globe Race. Returning to London, we clamored for Cornwall Hidden Treasure II where we can again discover magical vistas and taste cream teas and pasties.
