in the blood

It's been years since I was able to venture this far south in the UK, but on a recent visit for a work project I managed to find some time to reconnect with an old friend, as well as the stunning North Coast.

What grabbed me straight away is the amount of sky on show here. Coming from the mountains where you're constantly looking up, having this away vista with an unwavering horizon is an amazing change.

I came to St Agnes, Porthleven, Fowey and the Lizard many times as a kid and teenager, often for weeks at a time, but returning now there's something different - a pull.

There's just something about the place, something in the blood. It feels... clean.
