Walking through the woods


Thursday 31st October


Walking through the woods

Beside a babbling stream

A carpet of wet leaves

A rich green colour scheme


Thinking of you my darling

Precious Angel son


Beautiful old trees

A tangle of branches and ferns

No trunk, just splaying out from the ground

Red berries; could be Black Byrony

A makeshift bridge over the stream

Flowing down towards Gweek

Rich autumnal colours

Mossy covered limbs

A water logged tree

Very few leaves left on the branches

Creepers and ivy, growing upwards and downwards

A tumbling waterfall

High five


Wednesday 30th October


Keeping your memory alive

So that your soul can survive

You lived life in overdrive

Sending a virtual high five


Remembering you with love

My Angel in heaven above

Sweet darling son

Forever young


Breezy Mount’s Bay

Wind and kite surfers

Harnessing the power

Zipping across the waves

Grief hurts


Tuesday 29th October


Grief hurts

Grief changes

Grief remembers

Grief rearranges


Thinking of you sweetie

Treasured Angel son


Windy and cold at Porthmeor

Quite a few braving the waves

Choppy in the harbour

Brent goose in the harbour… A change from all the seagulls

A strong swell hits Lambeth Walk

And just like that


Sunday 27th October


And just like that

The sun came out

So much better

There is no doubt

A brighter day

Warmth on your face

To make you smile

It’s your embrace



Driving back from Penzance

On the narrow backroads

Beautiful autumn colours

Form a tunnel to the distance

The River Hayle at St Erth

High cirrus clouds over Porthmeor

Hardy holidaymakers enjoying the beach

Kisses over the harbour



Saturday 26th October


Mean and moody

Dark and gloomy

Dull and overcast

The rain has passed

A bracing stroll

Good for the soul

Chapel restored

Facing toward

The restless sea

Sweet melody


Thinking of you my angel

Precious son


Barnoon Cemetery looking towards Man’s Head

Rough seas today

The newly restored chapel

The cemetery was used as a setting for the final scenes of “Raise the Titanic”

One of my ancestors lost his life on the Titanic, and is buried here

Inside the Chapel, with ever-changing views of the seas below

Two chapels, joined, each a mirror image of the other

The rugged Cornish cliffs

Looking back towards the Island, with St Nicholas Chapel on the top

Thirteen years ago, we spent a wonderful October half term in Switzerland, discovering Lake Lucerne, Interlaken and the Jungfrau.

Miss you Frank xxxxx

Precious memories


Wednesday 23rd October


Precious memories

Cheerful adventures

Treasured moments

Countless pleasures


Life with you

Was always fun

My dearest darling

Angel son



Looking down on the harbour this morning

Surfers at the western end of Porthmeor Beach

A rocky corner

Porthmeor in the sunshine

Lifeguards on the lookout

Fun in the waves

A busy harbour; many outside the

Sloop pub

A sunny corner

A pretty autumn day


Tuesday 22nd October


A pretty autumn day

Many children at play

On half term holiday

Having fun in the bay

Dogs chase seagulls away

Warmed beneath the sun’s ray

Life is good, all’s okay


Thinking of you my angel

Remembering all the good times

Beloved son


A sunny and calm Porthmeor Beach

Enjoying the sunshine

Looking towards Man’s Head

Cloud reflections in the harbour

Cooler when the sun went behind the clouds
