Tintagel,,,, and a Finish!!

After visiting Port Isaac,,,, we popped along to Tintagel to have a look at the castle.
I should have taken some oxygen with me!!
I walked up these stairs not knowing how steep they were,, and each step was a different depth. Took me a while to get to the top. The stairs you can see opposite with the people on were not as bad as the first lot.

Merlin's Cave,, taken with a flash.

Merlin's cave,, without flash.

Tintagel is a place to visit, to 'soak up' the atmosphere,, to enjoy the views,, and to know that 'King Arthur' was born there!!

And now for the finish,,,,
 My redwork hanging fits nicely over the frosted window of my front door. Keeps the landing light out at night!!

Port Issac

Photo Heavy,,,
If you are fans of the TV series Doc Martin,, then this is for you. We went to Port Isaac on Saturday,, good job too, as the weather on Easter Sunday was awful.

It was a really nice to visit this place,, I did get a photo of 'The School', but it was blurry. After walking around, having a beer and a fish and chip lunch,, we headed over to Tintagel Castle,,, another post for another day!!!

I bought a magazine recently,, that had a little knit kit in,, just had to make him,,,

Scary Lamb!!
And the last thing is I made yet another knitting needle case, this one for my Bamboo straights,,
