I had a trip out for lunch today to the Lugger Inn in Polruan. Polruan sits at the mouth of the River Fowey and a small ferryboat links Fowey across the river with Polruan. I couldn’t recommend the Lugger Inn highly enough. Our lunch of fresh, locally caught plaice with buttered prawns on a bed of crushed new potatoes with samphire was absolutely superb!

After lunch on a scorching hot day, what better way to spend an hour than sitting on the quayside enjoying the view, a lovely sea breeze, and watching people messing about in boats on the river. Well, for me as a photographer, there was a better way to spend that hour of course and that was taking photographs. My mother, whom I’d taken out to lunch, got to sit and enjoy the view and the breeze and I didn’t feel quite so guilty about getting all absorbed in my photography when on a trip out together.
I pick up my Mum and we go out to lunch quite regularly and coincidentally enough, the pubs and hotels we visit are always in locations that lend themselves to a photograph or two. My Mum hasn’t complained, is very tolerant and for that I’m very grateful. Here are some of the pictures I took today. A day and a location that lent themselves perfectly to a picture postcard type photo or two. Click on any of the pictures to open the gallery. I hope you enjoy the pictures..
