Surrounded by the Celtic sea in the north and west, the English channel in the south and Devon over river Tamar (an English county) in the east, Cornwall is best suited for a coastal expedition. It would be heart-breaking to see this breathtakingly beautiful region of Great Britain break loose from the peninsula, if they succeed in their struggle to gain an autonomous identity. I recently had the privilege of travelling there.
I knew I was already breathing the Cornish air, when my train stopped at Newquay. The colorful harbor visible from my window filled me with delight.
At 2pm, I got off my train at the Penzance train station. At the tourist information office outside the station, I picked up the tide timetable and headed straight to the beach
1. PENZANCE BEACH
I spent the afternoon at the walkway along the beach. It offered some fantastic urban and scenic views, alike. Everything from the fairy-tale houses, the blue seas, the distant green countryside and the pleasant skies, held me captivated. In my confusion about what to admire, I hadn't noticed how my ears had got accustomed to the ironically pleasant screeching of the seagulls.
