St. Ives; a lovely Cornwall harbor town

We took the train to St. Ives in Cornwall from Truro, it only cost about $5 each for us to go to the beach and to return to Truro.  Here is an old fashioned signal box house for those of you who are railroad fans that is still operating in the Truro train station. truro signal box small The train goes to St. Erth where we got on the St. Ives train.  This train only goes back and forth to St. Ives.Truro train smallSt. Ives is a seaside town on the western edge of Cornwall.  It is a popular summer resort.  We went on one of the few days of sunshine that we experienced in Cornwall and it was crowded.  Here is a photo of the beach.St Ives beach 5x7 smallMany people put up wind breaks and small pop up tents.  There is a lovely harbor where the local kids jump off the pier to go swimming.St Ives pier jumpers small There is a picturesque Lighthouse on the end of the pier.St Ives lighthouse small  And some local seals patrol the harbor walls hoping some of the fishing boats might lose some fish.st Ives seal head small We did get some fish and chips in a fun restaurant on the harbor front.  Here is a photo of David looking happy after eating salmon. St Ives David fish and chips small  It was a wonderful day train trip.
