Cast your mind back to The Prodigal Wife and the coastguard cottage in which Cordelia lived and worked. This was set somewhere on the Devon coast within reach of both Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. Not so the cottage from whence came the inspiration for this dwelling.
Last Saturday and the weather was iffy – slightly better than forecast being bright but still cold. As some of the writers of the Georgian period would have put it: cold and cold. Marcia’s mobile beeped. It was a text from one of Marcia’s great friends, Anne.
‛Tea and some cake this afternoon?’
Lovely idea. Especially as it is Anne who lives in the old coastguard cottage – albeit down in Cornwall – referred to above. I have been meaning to let you see some reasonable pictures of the views that Anne enjoys but the last few trips down there have been in the rain or when the bay was home to a heavy mist. Not so last Saturday as the following will show. You really can’t blame Anne for wanting to live there, can you?
