The Creek by L.J. Ross Ė A great new Summer read
Cornwall is an extraordinary place; one could almost say
magical. There are many contrasts, from
moorland to the old tin mining country; the North and South coasts very
different from each other, and many beautiful villages and towns. The whole generated by a fascinating history
and folklore, making it different from the rest of Britain.
Within the magic of Cornwall is one particular location that
is perhaps even more beautiful than the rest; the area around the Helford River
and Frenchmanís Creek. Driving through
the winding lanes around the Helford, you catch glimpses of the river through the
trees, the sunlight dappling and catching the light on the water. Likewise, walking along the banks of Frenchmanís
Creek on a sunny afternoon, with no one else around, you would not be surprised
to see a pirate ship hidden in the creek among the leafy trees that bow right
down to the water.
