There are plenty of fantastic pictures of Porthleven in stormy weather, but on our visit there in October 2009, it a calm overcast day. There is however a nice harbour to explore, and a distinctive church right by the sea wall.

The picture here is looking out towards the sea from the harbour; however it is worth taking a look on Flickr for pictures of church (in the background on my shot) in the middle of a storm.  Portleven is a place I have made a note to visit one day when it is stormy.  The pub opposite the Church, the Ship Inn, has a terrace outside which could be the perfect place to wait around for the perfect conditions.

Porthleven is just a short drive out of Helston.
