St Ives harbour, a turnstone and a bomb!
29th November 2012
St Ives is not so busy in November. A good time to visit and the weather can be spectacular.
Turnstones must be the cutest current residents. They must like St Ives as every year there seems to be more of them. Obviously someone else likes them as I come across about 30 of them enjoying an offering of birdfood.
Looking through some past photos of St Ives I come across this one taken on Porthmeor beach last February. It made me smile as the object in the water is the remains of an old boiler from the SS Alba which went aground in 1938. On the first of September this year the bomb disposal unit were called out as a holiday maker had reported there was an unexploded bomb on the beach! Tragically 5 of the crew lost there lives that night on 31st January 1938.
