We spent last month camping in Cornwall. The weather was outstanding and we both agreed we could live like that forever if the weather would only comply. Here are the photos - rather a lot but I need to post them now whilst I have this blog site open.
A post of 34 photos. The Purbeck railway line transports the nostalgic voyager along the 12mile track through English countryside and past the magnificent Corfe Castle sitting high on its hill above its quaint village to the seaside town of Swanage.

Always makes me think of the poem 'Hurricane Hits England' when I'm on the beach watching the sea throw its tantrum.
And I am so terribly behind with posting. Not that I'm complaining after having spent a month in India for which I feel privileged, dumbfounded, enlightened, heartbroken, joyous, humbled, confused, enriched.... I defy anyone to come away from India and feel they have an understanding of how they feel about that place and its people. Our trip... Continue Reading →
