Natural Beauty

Rocky path ahead
Treading lightly on soft sand
Distant house of light

A Piece of Land's End...

Land's End is one of the most popular outdoor attractions in Cornwall
and a 20 minute drive from Hayle. It is situated on the westerly most point of mainland Britain and is surrounded by some of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, and also, breathtaking scenery. Also famous for its "End to Enders",
you can hear the extraordinary tales of the people who have traveled from
Land's End to John o'Groats (the northerly most point of mainland Britain).
The distance from one to the other totaling 874 miles.

Sheep Territory!

During an interim of the current bout of rainstorms,
I took the dog out for a country walk
and came across these two onlookers!

Looks like Snow and Ice!

Following my latest obsession of classic literature, here is something from The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft, by ~George Gissing

"For the man sound in body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every sky has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously."

Rocks upon the shore...

I stumbled upon these rocks, while out walking my dog on Mexico Towans Beach. I'm assuming the cliffs got some good pounding from the latest rush of rainstorms and scattered all through the beach were various rocks, with a huge percentage of it being granite. The scattered rocks were such a lovely sight to see!!

Today, I'd like to share a piece from William Makepeace Thackeray,

"To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted by no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; and to forgo even ambition when the end is gained--who can say this is not greatness..."

Out of the Storm...

After days of constant rainstorm, the sun finally had its moment and the rest of the day... Wednesday, we are expecting thunder & lightning - hopefully tomorrow we'll see the sun shining before more of the rainstorm!

~It's been a busy last few weeks, but I hope to resume postings this week~

The following is from a classic, a personal favorite, 'Nicholas Nickleby' ~by Charles Dickens:
"If our affections be tried, our affections are our consolation and comfort; and memory, however sad, is the best and purest link between this world and a better."

White Wash...

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”

Clouds of Love

"Floating together through the open sky...
Flowing with the rhythm of the sea...
Love, a constant beacon"
