      I thought I had already used that as a header, but it seems not. So I have changed it 😁
      Have you read the book?

          No. I suppose I should do 🙂

    A lovely shot, Jude. The composition is perfect.
    I really must get around to exploring some Norfolk lighthouses.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      It is hard to take a bad photo of such an iconic landmark and I wanted to capture it with the thrift as I am usually too late. The only lighthouse I recall in Norfolk is that wonderful red and white striped one at Happisburgh. I must have a photo somewhere.

    Let’s go!! 🙂 🙂 Lovely shot, Jude. I feel very susceptible.

  4. You put that old saying about blue and green to rest with this beautiful photo Jude. And isn’t the sky a gorgeous shade.

      When the sun shines in Cornwall there is no better place 🙂
