St Agnes' Head, Cornwall

St Agnes' Head, Cornwall
When I visit Cornwall, my first tradition is to leap down the grassy bank to the edge of St Agnes' Head, lightly skip across the granite rocks and plonk myself down in a favourite corner at the end of this peninsula, while-away a few hours contemplating the universe, quantum physics, why men need to wear ties, Jeremy Corbyn and the intricate design of manhole covers, ... Theresa May and why her first name is impossible to pronounce by my Spanish students, before gently sauntering back uphill having taken 2 or three photos. A pint or two of bitter and a packet of dry-roasted in the Victory Inn at Towans Cross and I am a pig in clover.
In three weeks time time ... Please!

All this leaping, skipping and deep thinking must be very tiring, Andy. You mut need a break when you get back from Cornwall, ;-)

I bet you are looking forward to it, though maybe not so much to thinking about Jeremy and Theresa, the latter maybe making life difficult for you..

Very true, Gudrun, although the effects won't be known just yet. Yes, it is worrying.

Ties, Corbyn, May and manhole covers will all gradually drift off into the blue and you will sit there contemplating life, the universe and everything. It's just the spot for it. Then, after a Eureka moment you will exclaim "Forty-two !" and skip off to the pub. Bet you can't wait.

Andy Rodker club has replied to Jean club
That's it Jean!!
42 is the answer as has been known now for many years!!
Some people may be puzzled by my reference to manhole covers but I read somewhere that Jeremy Corbyn collects them and I find that a thing of much wonderment!!!
Still, great news from IMA this morning!!! :o)

Sounds good to me Andy!! How do they pronounce Theresa then? I shall now take a keener interest in manhole covers now ;-))
Almost forgot....a fine shot!

Andy Rodker club has replied to Rosalyn Hilborne club
Well, as in Anthony and Thomas, they assume the 'th' is pronounced as in 'Think'.

Hi Marie-france and thank you!
Very sorry! I do use a lot of colloquialisms when I get carried away (and phrasal verbs too!).
I would like to visit Ouessant one day, but there are so many places I would like to visit too and will never get the opportunity if I live to be 120!
