I am just back from a wonderful holiday in Cornwall. My husband and I travelled around and spent 2 nights In Bude and we will definitely be back and stay longer next time. While we were there I wrote this poem and thought you might like to share it on your website. I would indeed, and many thanks, Nora, for your wonderful poem.   The Perfect Day Sitting on a cliff in Cornwall, the suns searing heat is tamed by the kiss of a gentle breeze and the sea’s hypnotic shushing, “it’s okay, you’re okay, everything is okay in the world, today.”...

Today’s the Day for Rory’s Sea Challenge

Well today’s the day. It is time for Rory Sacree’s Float 4 Life Challenge and Rory needs more sponsors, please Bude. As many of you will know, Rory is a RNLI lifeguard in #Bude.

And that is partly what he is trying to raise money...
