Clinging on

This is Looe in Cornwall. A small town where the houses cling to the hillsides, which tumble down to the sea.

    Very picturesque. Sights like this always make me wonder to what extent it is safe to built houses so close to the sea. Hopefully it’s safer than it looks.

    No wonder the house prices are so high in Cornwall, it’s so picturesque.

      Yes, I can understand the problems local people face when housing is so expensive and the local economy limits work and salaries.

    I remember eating fish and chips on Looe beach when I was a kid, and dad was running around constantly to shoo away the seagulls that kept dive bombing us. Ahhhh, fun times!

    How lovely! But I do think I would want to be one who lived at the TOP of the hill.

    This reminds me of the Amalfi Coast. Pretty…

      Well the UK is even more beautiful but I have to concede defeat to Greece on the climate. Anyway, who needs sunshine all the time when you can have a log fire, a welcoming pub and rolling countryside. The south west of England is characterised by steep hills tumbling down to a wonderful coast line, with lots of villages with narrow streets hanging on to the sides.
