Light

Cornish Beaches: Praa Sands

Praa (pronounced pray) Sands is a mile-long, south-west-facing beach on the eastern edge of Mounts Bay, Cornwall, approximately 7 miles from Penzance and 5 miles from Helston. I holidayed there in a caravan park with three of my four children back in 1991. It now appears to be the site of luxury lodges. Despite only…

Where are the cows today?

Today is the last day of the walking squares. I have had a lot of fun with this month’s topic and hope that you have enjoyed walking with me. A special thank you to Becky, who is using daily walks to help her in her grieving process, for allowing us to come together and share…
