Walking through the woods

Standard

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

xxxxx

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

Standard

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

Standard

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

Standard

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

Chapel

Standard

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
