June Squares | Roofs

It’s June and another 30 day challenge from Becky.  ‘The Life of B’ This month she is looking for a roof or roofs or even rooves. Follow the link for the rules.

Mên-an-Tol

This site is one of the best known megalithic structures in Britain. The name Men-an-Tol means simply ‘holed stone’ and despite having been considered a significant and popular monument from a very early date, its true purpose remains a mystery.

It’s a mystery to me how anyone finds their way to these historic sites in Cornwall, as they are not particularly well sign-posted and often involve squeezing the car into a tiny lay-by, before scaling a stile or two and tramping along a muddy lane. Cornwall Tourist Board “could do better”. 

One week left to join in with Becky’s (“A life of a 40 something”) March challenge of square photographs with the theme:

  1. Squared Squares’ – think multiple squares and squares within squares
  2. Squaring the Circle’ – the perfect post will be a circle within a square

Godrevy – Portreath Heritage Coast

This is in  celebration of Earth Day and the birth of my newest grandson who was born on Mother’s Day in Australia. As our ‘Blue Planet’ comprises of 70% water an image of the Celtic Sea seems appropriate. The cliffs along this part of the Cornish coast are becoming very unstable due to erosion and you certainly won’t get me scrambling down them to a beach.

North Cliffs and Crane Islands

It is a great place for spotting wild flowers and sea birds along the 250 feet high sheer cliffs and basking sharks have been seen below.
