This is the first in a series of photojournals around the UK but mostly in Cornwall and the rest of the South West. Due to fairly hefty commitments (a masters degree) it’s hard for me to continue with the lengthy blogs I was writing while abroad, but a photojournal is a way of keeping track of days out exploring this incredible part of the country.
Today I start in the National Trust owned Glendurgan Garden near Helford; a subtropical garden that can thrive due to the milder climate here.
This tame little Robin caught my eye as people were able to get closer than half a metre away and it didn’t mind at all.
At the end of each path downhill is a hamlet called Durgan and a peaceful beach to sit on for lunch.
…and a maze to get lost in on the way back up.
This was the view from inside the maze… enough to get a tantalising look at the pathways but not enough to figure out which way to go.
