Botallack

This was taken on the latest walk for the book, at Crowns Engine Houses at Botallack - some of the most photographed mines in Cornwall, for obvious reasons. But not many with our Moll in the foreground.

I had a very productive meeting with Celia - www.celiacreeper.co.uk - and she would like to paint each of the walks and sell the paintings separately from my book, but in conjunction with it. We've also talked about a joint book launch/exhibition and other events, which would be exciting. She's full of ideas - even on the second week in January - which is brilliant.

Then we had a lovely few days in Penzance courtesy of a very generous friend who lent us her cottage along the sea front. It was incredibly relaxing and warm, with the most wonderful window onto the outside world - you wouldn't believe how many people walk, run, skate or hobble along there - and was a real tonic. We also did a couple of long walks and explored Penzance a bit - the only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Now it's full steam ahead and on with the book!

The mine on the left of the picture looks like it is leaning over the edge on its right side?

DC - it does a bit, doesnt it?! It's not like the leaning tower of Pisa though!

More evocative pictures of your beautiful Cornwall, starring Mol of course. I think Mol should be the emblem of Cornwall. Hope all is well with you.

Oh, how wonderful, to have paintings to go along with your book! I can't wait to see the finished product. :)

Kim - that is a brilliant idea. I could get her to earn her living!
