Here is the cottage where I spent summer holidays long ago. I never went there in November but my daughter went recently. Ah, the wonders of Instagram!

Here it is straight on with different color paint than I recall and a different gate.

Here are some cows waiting to produce milk for clotted cream - at least I hope so.

Here is St. Winnow the other side of the Fowey River. We used to take the canoe there and wander in the churchyard.

Here is a beach on the north shore with a stream meandering through it - how perfect for feats of engineering!

How people are dwarfed by the wide Atlantic beach...


  1. Great memories for you Elizabeth I see.

  2. These are fabulous images of a place obviously filled with loving memories!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,
    big hug,

  3. Wonderful pictures. I was thinking to myself how quintessentially English the cottage looked when I first saw it and then when I read I realised it is!
    Happy Thanksgiving.X

  4. Beautiful !
    You and your daughter as so lucky.
    What a lovely place to spend some time.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family
    Watson and Hamish send woofs !
    cheers, parsnip

  5. Ohhh what a lovely place, and cold I would guess- Britain has the best hot water bottles, I had several! Hope that your holidays will be well spent , preferably with the cutest best smartest little children in the universe! LOVE and wags from Dex!

  6. Thanks for the pretty English photos. I can smell the cow pats and hear the cows a lowing. Makes me miss the old country. Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Just down the road; sort of. What wonderfully evocative pictures.

  8. What a fine photographer Claudia is! You two make a fine pair of guides to beauty to be found about New York...and sometimes other places, too.

    Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am very thankful for good friendship!
