Buzzard, Waves and Lewis Carroll?

An evening ride in late sunshine to Chapelporth was a delight. We were able to get close to this Buzzard on a telegraph pole.

It was high tide and the waves were crashing satisfyingly against the rocks.

A VW camper van came into the car park for a few moments and had some of (?) Lewis Carroll’s words on the side.

In fact the lines are not from Alice in Wonderland though the sentiment is when the Cheshire Cat has a conversation with  Alice:

‘Cheshire Puss,’ she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. ‘Come, it’s pleased so far,’ thought Alice, and she went on. ‘Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’

‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.

‘I don’t much care where …..’ said Alice.

‘Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.

‘….. so long as I get somewhere,’ Alice added as an explanation.

‘Oh, you’re sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough.’

The words are, of course, George Harrison’s in his composition, Any Road. Listen here!

Isn’t that a delight?  I like the next one too, All Things Pass.  Over to you, Dear Reader.
