If it has seemed quiet on here, the long Christmas break was followed immediately by a two-week holiday in Cornwall, resuming a habit broken for two years by the pandemic. To spread some of the pleasure that gave, here are some of my holiday snaps.
We stay at Trebetherick on the north Cornwall coast. This is the River Camel, looking towards Padstow.
The view in the other direction is less benign.
Big seas at the mouth of the river.
The lifeboat was busy.
We saw many birds, including this kestrel on Bodmin Moor.
The moon over the sea, an unexpected bonus when the dog woke me up in the middle of the night.
