Remembering Bill Mitchell 1951 – 2017

Our Dear friend and neighbour Bill Mitchell died on this day last year and we have been remembering him today in various special ways. Firstly, here is my Welly Dog, left to me by Bill, seen here with Tulips.

Bill was an artist as well as a theatre director and painted a particular area in West Penwith most weeks. Each of his friends was invited after his death to choose a painting which was a very lovely thing. Today, many of his friends came down to Botallack where the paintings were made and we walked all around in Bill’s footsteps, following his paintings through the landscape, all the while sharing memories of this lovely man.

Seagull, Cows and Sea Views

A seagull looked quizzically at me as we looked at St Michael’s Mount in the distance.

We watched as a herd of cows made their way from field to farm to be milked.

Such a blustery day, there were white horses as far as we could see either way along the coast.  It has also been very cold here in West Penwith.
