Only a very few words this week April 22, 2017 ~ John Bender Cornwall Cogitation #12 Saturday 22 April 2017 From a mountain of thoughts, a range of views, a mixture of sounds, and moments of quiet comes a vastly condensed word and visual miscellany. River Hayle on our walk Thursday from Penzance to Lelant. Along this section we heard the two-note call of a cuckoo! Blackthorn in the meadow, calves in a field (left), tippings of abandoned tin mines (farther on). The theatre of time. The Friendship Wood part of our 12-mile walk from Penzance to Marazion to Lelant and branch line train home. All vehicle traffic on the only road through Marazion waits while the oil delivery driver serves a customer. The Southwest Coast Path on the Atlantic side. Field work afoot. Gorse of course. Godrevy Lighthouse with evidence in the foreground of what a pounding sea can do. We attended a lecture at Truro Cathedral on The Impact of the Bible on Celtic and Anglo-Saxon Society before AD 1000. A blackbird sings it from the rooftop. Easter Garden at Truro Cathedral. Evening view over St Ives. Cartoon in a bookshop window in Penzance. Remains of some child’s castle in the sand of Carbis Bay beach. Beauty on the rocks. Carbis Bay beach on Monday morning. Hi ya. Easter Sunday at St Anta. Flowers for Easter in our flat. Barbara Hepworth sculpted in metal, wood and marble in St Ives. Best! John Share this:TwitterFacebookMoreEmailPrintLike this:Like Loading...

As always, I seem to know your area through your pictures. What a lovely part of the world.
Pictures tell a thousand words.
I’m appreciating Cornwall more and more through your photos and captions.
Reminds me to take time to smell the roses. You have an eye for beauty!
