    1. Oui oui (ala Francoise Hardy – how does one look so bloody gorgeous). He will be quite happy to see the doffing of the hats and all that. He doth think I do not give him a lot of credit. While I do but silently. I can see you as a die-hard hiker quoting verses along the way as you see this and that xx

  2. I think cow-themed hiking could really be the next big thing in travel. After all, nobody would have dreamed up cat cafés a decade ago either. As always, great photos. Somehow you always seem to have good light, whereas I frequently complain that it always rains in places I only get to once. New word of the day for me: alacrity.

    1. Ahahaha you make my day. You think I should start selling this theme with ‘alacrity’? 😉 Oh not to worry, I have plenty of photos that got me whiny at the time that I took them (read: dark and dreary skies). Those shall inevitably show up along the course of my blog posts.

  3. Stunning views and photos as always 😀
    I had never been one for hikes, save for that one time I hiked up to Machu Picchu. Then I was encouraged to try some local ones and I have quite enjoyed them. I do refuse to go on very sunny days though, as I’ve learnt it makes me incredibly cranky and I will whine and complain. I am getting better though. There are a lot more local trails that Rory and I are interested in, maybe one day soon we will do them, and take lots of pictures so we can share the experience 🙂

    1. Thank you Angela 🙂 I think you did a brilliant one with Machu Picchu. I am so not a sunny-day hiker because my temper does not remain sunny. But somehow that day it was not too bad even with the searing intensity of the sun. I would love to see photos and account of your hikes with Rory. You do have fantastic ones in the country xx

  4. I had not heard the term Elvis legs either, but it’s good. I’ll try and remember it the next time I get shaky legs. The cows sound slightly more aggressive than the cows I’ve experienced. I would get a bit scared too if I cow started charging at me. This looks like a beautiful walk through the country side though, and how cool that there is a castle at the end of it.

    1. Right? I found the term rather cute. Those Lake District cows were. But I shall not besmirch all English cows. They can be adorable too like the Cornish ones. You will see by and by in my posts more Daisies (as I call the Friesian ones) who look like they need some cuddles. That castle at the end is something else. One of the most stunning castles I have laid my eyes on even though those are just the ruins xx


  5. Not only are your pictures beautiful, but your posts are so well-written. I feel like I need to be in this place like, right now. It’s stunning. I’m aching inside. Thank you for the lovely language and photographs.

      1. Okay I think here was what I wrote. It might differ from the first version. Wistful words that brought a smile because my heart flips for storytellers too. The world would be a bleaker place without people like your mum and dad. You have inherited the storytelling trait alright along with the ability to make us laugh as you take us along with you in your journey of life xx

  6. The views are breathtaking. Poor Adi, he didn’t know what he was get himself into. Burning hot hikes near scary cows. The first one looks like she’s thinking “who you looking at, biatch?”

    1. I bet she was. If cows could speak! Adi dragged me away before I could beckon her to come near us. He has started enjoying these hikes so much. Halfway through I had half a mind to take the path to one of the villages because I was wondering about him but he stuck to it. He did annoy me a fair bit with bad jokes and silly things on the way like going way close to the edge of the cliffs! 😉

  7. Thank you for your positive comments. And thank you for this beautiful post. I have not been to Tintagel in may years but it definitely was one of my favourites places on this globe. Hope to speak with you again soon. Look forward to many posts. Positive vibes to you and your family ❤

    1. Thank you Cherry, for the positive vibes and the lovely comment 🙂 I am happy you like it because this is what makes blogging such a wonderful experience. To connect with like-minded people. If I could make a little shed on the castle ruins in Tintagel, I would not think twice! Though my hair would be forever standing up in all that blustery wind 😉 You have a lovely day!
