21st October 2012
Day 9

Woke up to a cloudy morning and very low cloud, we were all to meet up at St Ives, even when its cloudy St Ives still manages to hold on to its charm. We met up for a coffee in the Sloop Inn, which is one of Cornwall oldest and most famous inns. It goes back to the year 1312 and its a favourite haunt with the local fishermen,artist and with the holidaymakers, one of its claim to fame was that it featured in Clive Cussler's film, Raise The Titanic, filming was shot here and at Barnoon Cemetery in November 1979, as I've previously stated in an earlier blog that Barnoon cemetery holds the bodies of two passengers who drowned on the liner. Once inside the Inn you greeted with low beam ceilings and a low lit bar. Thou it wasn't the best of days people were sat outside under the umbrellas, and tucking into their full English Breakfast.

When we exited the Inn we noticed it had be raining, (the first rain of the holiday), we said our goodbyes to my sister and brother-in-law and made our separate ways.  We got back to the car in the nick of time has the rain started to fall.

After St Ives we headed to the Minack Theatre for a bite to eat, at least by this time the weather had dried up. The view from the minack is breathtaking in all kinds of weather

That evening I decided to walk down to the sand dunes and hopefully get some nice photos of the setting sun, I was not disappointed.
