Called in at St Ives (wish we hadn't) and discovered Fowey, although the locals there do have a problem with English.

Meet ball? 

The aberrant apostrophe.

St Ives has become far too commercialised as an art brand. The place is an excuse for hideous, mass produced "art", of a twee Cornish fishing village nature, but you never see a single artist doing his thing. They're all in "art factories" where "the St Ives light" (which is what they all seem to crow about) is totally immaterial.

Fowey is less commercialised, but fast heading down the St Ives route.

  1. When I was last in St Ives I saw an artist painting in the street. But it was night time.
