The serenity of the River Fowey at high tide is evident in this photo. Boats glide through the water peacefully and it's easy to see why so many Celtic saints settled along the river banks. Even today, there are medieval churches dotted along the banks, built upon the early settlements of these Celtic Christians and a peace pervades many of these, and the near presence of God. They are still 'thin places'.
