Our Cornish holiday part 5 - The Minack Theatre

From 1931 until she died in 1983, The Minack Theatre was planned, built and financed by one determined woman - Rowena Cade. (Click on date tag for more pics!)
It's one of the most amazing places I have ever feasted my eyes on. And it's still a fully functioning, well preserved stage for actors and actresses, in a spectacular setting (weather permitting).

Our Cornish holiday part 2 - things we did

There was plenty of shopping, in cobbled streets and unusual shops.


A farmers market, to sample local produce and buy cheese and jam and other such delights.








We visited Truro Cathedral.




And the famous author, Daphne Du Maurier's house, she often stayed here whilst writing her best sellers.


And we dined out in restaurants and enjoyed expensive steaks and fresh fish.


Coming soon, a zoo, a cider farm, ports and views and Land End.
