Give the man a cigar !

Seal Rocks it is. Just south of Crowdy Head. Wonderful place.

Thanks Mark! I would never have found it if you hadn't pointed me in the right direction.

Here is a lovely little fishing village that will always be remembered for one night that was both tragic and inspiring.

Not Clovelly. Although I can see the similarity, at least this village doesn't charge to an entrance fee

Don't be misled by the boat registration; it's not Padstow, although Paulo is right that it is SW England. This place was in the news earlier this year.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mousehole it is. (The name is contracted as you would "mainsail").

The tragedy was the 1981 Penlee Lifeboat disaster. After an attempted rescue by helicopter failed, the Penlee Lifeboat went to the aid of MV Union star, who’s engines had failed in 60 foot seas. Despite the conditions they managed to take off four people but as they made a last attempt to reach those who remained aboard, both vessels were dashed against the rocks near Tater Du Lighthouse. The eight man crew of the RNLI Solomon Browne (all from Mousehole), the five man crew of the MV Union Star and three members of the captain’s family, were all lost. Within one day, the men of Mousehole had formed a new volunteer crew.

Mousehole was in the news again this year after Mary Unwin stopped there on her way home in a boat she had just purchased. Despite attempts to dissuade her, she set off again. The wreckage of her boat was found off Sennen Cove.

Despite the gloomy history, it is a lovely place.
