Home (or thereabouts) on the Helford

I’m now anchored on the very lovely Helford River, after a brief stop at Mullion Cove on the other side of the Lizard peninsula.

Maid may well actually think of this as home, since her previous owner bought her just upriver at Gweek and then moored her just round the corner at the top of the Penryn River near Falmouth.

I don’t think she’ll actually be stopping just here, but it’s a very nice spot to spend a few days.

(nautically-minded readers will probably be appalled at the lack of an anchor ball in this picture – the omission has since been rectified..)

Plans from now on are a little uncertain. I know I have a fair few blog entries to catch up on, not to mention finding a job, somewhere to keep the boat and somewhere to live..

  1. Hmmmm …… I recognise that place! πŸ™‚

  2. PETE!!!!!!! Massive congratulations on getting to Cornwall! Sorry we’ve not been in touch. Got home and have done nothing productive or useful since, but have been having A LOT of fun! We’re in Portscatho, Planet’s in Percuil just round the corner from St Mawes. There’s a nice anchorage around neaps just a bit further up from her which is ideal. Give us a bell on 0———-9 and hopefully we’ll catch up soon. There’s a pub here with your name on it! xxx

      I reckon we should dispatch one of your lot somewhere foreign with something to blog from… Maybe backpacking, or driving across Africa or something?
