Crowdy Reservoir view

I went for a walk in Bude yesterday. There was a market on the Quay there and on one of the stalls there was a nice chap - John Worth Photography -  selling items featuring his own photos, from cards and calendars to mounted prints. He said that for his market - the many tourists… Continue reading Crowdy Reservoir view

Roughtor’s Random Rocks

Around the base of the main huge granite boulders making the summit of Roughtor are many random smaller stones. There is no pattern, just hundreds of assorted and irregular slabs strewn around the place. A few are standing, maybe manoeuvred in a long ago history to point up at a significant object in the night… Continue reading Roughtor’s Random Rocks
