There is certain mellowness about those dusky evenings, when the winter storms are spent and the summer sea laps languidly against ancient harbour walls. Here in west Cornwall we are spoilt with so many lovely sheltered harbours to visit for a seafood supper and we recently made our way around Mounts Bay to renew our acquaintance with Mousehole and Newlyn.
We visited Porthleven on a silky smooth night this week to celebrate Charles’s birthday with supper in one of the fish restaurants that cluster around the harbour there.
