Wheal Coates, Waves and Switching on the Lights

29 Nov

1   It was a gloriously bright winter’s day and we took a walk up to Wheal Coates on the North Coast of Cornwall, starting from Chapel Porth. This is for Shelagh.

2    There was an off-shore wind catching the tops of the waves making long plumes of spray the length of each wave as it unfurled.

3   Our small town, Redruth, was absolutely stuffed with people this evening for the switching on of the Christmas lights, the children’s lantern parade and our singing of carols. It was so lovely to be part of community happiness.  Click on any photo for detail.

    Our neighborhood is beginning to brighten up with lights. It does make one feel cheery…..the cold crispness of the air, the nippy frosty feeling, warm knitted stockings on ones feet…
    Getting a bit carried away. lol Up in the 70’s today. 🙂
