Barbara Hepworth, Graffiti Grannies and Driftwood Dragon

1   St Ives was our destination today, by train along one of the most beautiful coastlines. St Ives itself is very beautiful and one of the highlights for me is always our visit to the Barbara Hepworth Studio and Garden.

From the train from Lelant to St Ives, one of the best train rides ever

2   By the time we went back along to catch the train home, some Graffiti Grannies had been busy yarn bombing the rails!

3   Two sculptures for you, one, on St Ives railway station by David Kemp who made the Tinners Hounds in Redruth town centre and this driftwood one which I’ve posted before but in case you missed it, here it is again, St George and the Dragon. I love it!

I just want to show you this extra photo from yesterday which delighted me. It was taken near the Lizard Lighthouse.

If you have read this far, a question for you….  I’ve decided I don’t really like the Gallery way of presenting a series of photos as they cannot be enlarged as much to see detail. What do you think?

One from yesterday that I don’t think was served well by putting it into a Gallery.
