|The Minack Theatre, Cornwall - as the sun sets.|
The last time we went to see a play we popped into the small village of Mousehole first and then onto the Minack. It was a glorious day and when we arrived the sky was full of subtle colours - as shown in the first photo.
The play we saw was based on Zorba the Greek. The words of the author Nikos Kazantzakis have stayed with me:
"We stayed silent by the brazier until far into the night. I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else. And all that is required to feel that happiness here and now is a simple frugal heart"
Anyway, whatever happiness is, the photos were taken on a happy night! I'd recommend the Minack Theatre to those visiting Cornwall.
