A Black and White Sunday

St Ives at high tide. I don’t know about the moving water, but it certainly makes you move pretty sharpish when it splashes over the pavement!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Love this shot Jude! It’s often like this over on our Headland. And we seem to have our share of water coming down from the sky this morning too. C’est la vie😃😃

    1. Water in the water garden! Rained when we visited too, but not too much. I hope you manage to get some photos, the garden at the top of the water cascade is fabulous.

      1. Poured this morning but we did the castle -a first for me and fabulous. Just drizzly by the time we got to the gardens. The roses have taken a battering but it’s a lovely place. Foggy now with a bit of watery sunshine. Tired feet time xx

        1. It turned out better here than was forecast, some showers, but quite humid and warm. You home tonight or staying until morning?

        2. Staying. We planned to go further up the coast tomorrow but the forecast is poor. Never mind, we’ll have a nice meal here tonight then totter up the stairs. Nice old fashioned pub 😃😃

        3. I got some lovely photos of St Abbs in the fog, you never know what you might find if you go a bit further. Pop over to Lindisfarne? Safe to cross between 09:05 until 14:30

        4. Oh dear, poor Mick. Not the best of weekends for him it seems. Gout is very painful so I understand. My mother and my cousin suffer(ed) from it.

  2. Not sure how long ago you took this, but the B&W gives it a timeless feel. It might have been yesterday, or 25 years ago. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Spring I think Pete, I don’t get into St Ives much at the moment. The colours were very dull anyway so it seemed a good idea to convert to the black and white.
