Why ‘Life at the Edge‘? Well when we moved to Cornwall we found the part we were most attracted to is practically the end of the county and indeed country, West Penwith which is pretty much as it was hundreds, if not thousands of years ago, give or take the mining industry. Ancient stone walls, pasture land, narrow lanes, surrounded by water and very few towns. Mostly a string of hamlets along the remote roads. We now live on the edge of this peninsula and it often feels as though we are living in a different world.
I already have several blogs on the go, but my oldest one Travel Words began life as a place to record my travels (seems pretty obvious) from the past and present. It digressed as I started to post more photos on the site and to join in with bloggers’ photo challenges. As overseas trips became less prolific it also became a repository for local walks and photos in and around Shropshire, which is where I was living at the time.
So this new blog is only about Cornwall. Cornwall in colours. The colours of the land, the sea and the sky. The yellows of the gorse, the oranges of the lichens, the greys of the granite and the gulls, the soft pinks of sea thrift and daisies, the rusty-red of autumn bracken, the purples of wild foxgloves and late summer heather and the blues and greens of the sea.
I hope you will join me in this new adventure.
