Now this truly is an old stamping ground of mine!! Great shot. like

This is a very good take of the Head, which being on the north coast sometimes presents unfavourable lighting conditions and/or sun direction.


Best wishes,

Glad this brings back good memories for you Andy. It was a good walking holiday for us at the time with surprisingly good weather! Thanks for the like and good comments. Best wishes - Jim

1985 was also for me the 'best of times, the worst of times', but as time passes you more and more remember the good, thankfully! Best, Andy

Hi again Andy. I've had some years like that as well! Makes me wonder what year you went to live in Spain? Best wishes - Jim

Hi Jim!

Quick response!

Yes, I came to Spain in 2010 to teach English when everything went pear-shaped in Blighty. (The recession, etc) - Now I have a smashing Spanish girlfriend, a job of sorts, and fabulous scenery all around but I do miss Cornwall, even parts of London (after all I spent much more than half my life there) and I miss The Pub (although they had already changed out of all recognition before I left).

Sorry your question about 1985. Well I won't go into it but, yes, of course it involved a girl.....

Sorry. That was the long asnwer.

The short answer? 'Hi Jim, Nice photo, 'like' Best wishes, Andy.

Ps. I see I gave this a ysl but only marked a like.

Duly amended to ysl this time!! Ciao!
