Snow in St Ives (just not for very long!)

Firstly, Happy New Year to you all!

West Cornwall saw its first snowfall of the year today! The hill tops were all white, the side roads and gardens of St Ives were white, but its all fading very quickly as the salt air and sun melts it and as the picture shows, its actually quite nice day!

On top of the snow we've also had some fairly stormy seas sweeping into the bay, all in all giving a blustery and wintery feel. A quick walk this morning from the beach to The Sail Lofts was refreshing, but I must admit the warmth of the 'lofts' was more appealing!

St Ives bought the New Year in with style with lots of fancy dress, frolics and celebrations. A quieter week has now entailed, especially for those who are snowed in!

We had our second art showcase on the 2nd January, with Andrew Garner exhibiting some fine pieces of work, which we have now placed into the apartments. Watch this space to find out when the next event will be.

Fore Street at lunch time today looking very quiet after the hustle and bustle of Christmas.
