H is for Horse and I is for Island

As I’ve mentioned in my other post, we are going on an exciting road-trip to France next week –  so I’ve decided to post my letter “H” and “I” in one go.  I don’t really want to miss out on any of the letters!

Anyway, I first noticed the horses grazing by the coast guard’s hut last winter.  And saw them again, early spring of this year.  That was when the above photo was taken.  We don’t really know who owns them, but they are obviously owned by one of the local farmers.  It makes me a bit nervous to see them graze so close to the edge, I’m worried that they might fall!


I is for Island

There’s this small island very near the headland in our little village by the ocean called Meachers Rock.  One can only go there by boat or kayak, I have no idea though whether one has ever climbed it.  I imagine you’ll have to be an expert rock-climber to get to the top where, probably only birds live.

The above photo was taken when the sun was shinning with lovely blue skies and here’s the same island in moodier weather:

Hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Linking up once again with the lovely Charly and her #alphabetphotographyproject.

    Ooh I love the last photo, it’s very atmospheric. The horse is gorgeous too; I have a bit of a soft spot for horses! #alphabetphoto

    I am not sure I would want to climb the rock with all the bird poo! Lovely pictures, enjoy your holiday 🙂

    Your H photo looks like it could be here in Shetland! Lovely horse 🙂 Lovely little island too!

    • Thanks! I’ve never been to Shetland, must be lovely there too 🙂

  6. Sara (@mumturnedmom)

    Love the picture of the horse, but I think I’d be a bot nervous watching them graze that close to the edge 🙂 The sky in the last photo is fab! Have a lovely holiday x #alphabetphoto

  7. Cheryl (@CherylInTheUK)

    Both great photos. Almost like a smuggler’s island in a Famous Five story. Or how I imagine it anyway. Have a great holiday. #AlphabetPhoto

    • I think it was. There are loads of smuggler caves in Cornwall 🙂

  8. youbabymemummy

    Wow you must live in a very beautiful place. Great pictures and have a lovely trip x

  9. Charly Dove

    Oh wow Dean I love the horse by the edge of the cliff albeit slightly unnerving! Maybe that’s just because I have no sense of balance. Wonderful photo and I love the island too – both photos. Just fabulous. I’ll link up letter I for you next week #alphabetphoto

  10. Anne Russell

    Great photos! Feeling nostalgic for Cornwall! We’re hoping to come down and see some NT places in August. Have a lovely holiday! x

    • Oooh come and visit us Anne! You and John are most welcome to stay with us 🙂 xx

  11. Charly Dove

    Have linked you up to letter I, goes live at midnight 🙂

    • Thanks Charly! Just got back from our holiday in France (not back in Cornwall yet though), will try to update my alphabet photos! 🙂

  12. Rollercoaster Mum

    What a beautiful spot. The Island photos are fabulous.

  13. Lou's Lake Views (@LLoopyLou)

    Fab photo’s. thought I had been all over Cornwall but clearly not as I’ve never seen Meachers Rock before. Hope you’re having a great holiday 🙂

  14. Tarana Khan

    That island is breathtaking! I’d love to get lost there 🙂 #alphabetphoto

    • It is, isn’t it? And I love the way the scene always changes together with the seasons 🙂

  15. over40andamumtoone

    Wow that horse must see all weathers, very hardy beast #alphabetphoto

    • It certainly does, though I don’t always see those horses up there.

    What wonderful photos! I really love the ‘moody’ one – lucky you to have that ideal so nearby. Well done for keeping up with the alphabet photo, I’m very impressed 🙂 Hope you’re having a great holiday x

    • Thanks for the lovely comment! We’ve just gotten back from our holiday and had a blast 🙂
