Cornwall is King Arthur's Land, an untamed and beautiful country where it is actually warm in January. Go interested in tennis or golf and find yourself a devotee of Holy wells and Celtic crosses. Go for a holiday and you will be in an atmosphere of ancient magic and wonder-working saints. St. Austell is pronounced St. Ossle, but you will like it the more for that. The Phoenicians came to Falmouth for tin, the Romans for corn, and the Danes for blood. The silver Cornish beaches are supposed to be full of hidden treasure but golf balls are more often found than Spanish dollars. There are palm-shaded walks at Tresco. Palms in England? Goodness, yes! And St. Ives, named for St. Ia who came to Cornwall on a miraculous leaf in the fifth century. Through ancient Camelot rises Tintagel, the capital of King Arthur's Land; you can stand where Tristram and Iseult loved and gaze into the days of the ageless heroes.
