Polurrian Bay

On Bank Holiday Monday, the plan was that Cousin David and his brother Ben would meet his cousins and some of Stephanie’s friends at the Polurrian Bay Hotel, and then scatter her ashes on the beach below. The hotel is in a beautiful clifftop spot, just outside the village of Mullion which is about 20 miles from Penzance, down on the Lizard peninsular.

Twelve of us met there for afternoon tea, and then we all walked down the cliff path to Polurrian Bay, which apparently was a favourite place for Stephanie. Her parents had owned a house on top of the cliffs above the bay, and I could see why the whole family loved it there so much. I remember Christopher talking about holidaying there as a child, and I think I’ve even seen some photos of him and his sister there.

The weather just about stayed dry for us, though it was overcast and quite windy. It must be an absolutely gorgeous spot on a fine day.
