CORNWALL
















Country roads transported us from the south coast of England
to the west country

- Cornwall,

a place I've longed to see for myself
for so many years.


The St Ives of Virginia Woolf's summers,
(This time cold & rainy,
with floods of tourists & surfers.
But the same streets, the same lighthouse,
the same sea.)













St Michael's Mount
and July sunsets,
















Quaint fishing villages, 
like Mousehole here,

(Don't you just love that name?!
Although I was a little disappointed 
(and embarrassed)
to discover it's actually pronounced "mowzel".)


It's also home to photographer Paul Massey's
lovely hope mousehole.




















Tintagel in northern Cornwall
with its rugged cliffs,
 green blanket of grass,
turquoise sea,
stuff of Arthurian legends.



















Rugged, wild, dreamy Cornwall.
I know I'll be back one day.




Vierailu Cornwalliin oli minulle
 monen vuoden unelmoinnin täyttymys.
Näissä vilahtaa St Ives,
jossa Virginia Woolf vietti nuoruuden kesiään,
B&B:tämme lähellä sijaitseva
St Michael's Mount,
kalastajakylä Mousehole,
(jossa myös valokuvaaja Paul Masseyn
hope mousehole sijaitsee),
alimmissa Tintagelin
vaikuttavat maisemat,
jossa legendan mukaan
Kuningas Arthur sai alkunsa.

    1. Ei kyllä joutunut tuolla pettymään!
      Ja täytyy sanoa, että ihan joka puolella missä ajeltiin
      (ja nähtiin siis kolkkia etelästä pohjoiseen)
      oli maaseutu niin täydellisen idyllistä...
      yhtäkään ABC:n kaltaista hirviötä
      ei vaaninut nurkan takana :)
      Isompien kaupunkien laitamat tietty eri asia.

    1. I hope you get to go one day, Kerrie,
      I know you will love it...
      I'm already hoping to go back one day
      with more time in one place
      to let the pulse slow right down.

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
