The scenery was as usual amazing and the photo I took below at Pendeen reminded me of a favourite of mine by Sir John Betjeman, Cornish Cliffs. I know I have enthused before about him but it seemed fitting to include him again. He is buried in St Endoc’s Church in Trebetherick as is incidentally Fleur Lombard the first female Firefighter to die on duty firefighting for Avon Fire & Rescue Service here in the U.K.
