    1. Thanks David, lots to photo locally - must get myself a decent camera! Sometimes though it's nice just to walk and enjoy the views.

  2. I hope that you are not suffering in the intense heat we are hearing about! It's often the same here and with high humidity it can be very oppressive. Nonetheless, your tour today is beautiful and certainly full of history. Thank you, as always.

    1. Hello Ann, many thanks. Strangely enough we seemed to have missed the intense heat here in Cornwall. We have had quite a lot of cloud covering to keep the temperatures down. In some ways, I guess that is quite lucky - it's possible to have too much sun. All best wishes, hope you have had some interesting journeys.
