1. These are very nice, my dear intaglio!

I'm not sure where you live; can you tell me?

I esp. like the tides out picture, and the church.

Thanks for sharing!

2. Cornwall

These were taken round Penzance and The Lizard peninsula.

I am very lucky, essentially I am paid to drive round some of the prettiest bits of scenery.

4. Absolutely revolting conditions you're forced to work under.

 

Have you considered industrial action?

5. The first one reminds me of the Maine coast, with funny looking lobster boats.

It looks like country I would feel at home in. I remember (I think) a BBC series set in Cornwall that I liked to watch in the 70's. It was a historical drama (18th c.?) - any idea?

6. Poldark was probably the series

from the books by Winston Graham. He took some of the names from places

Poldark was a mine near Helston (home of the Floral/Furry dance)
Demelza is a hamlet in St Wenn Parish (There are hundreds of Cornish Saints)
Warleggan is another hamlet name, this one on Bodmin Moor
