It is easy to forget how close farmland is there, and in fact we passed lots of cattle next to ...
... The situation is made worse by the fact that our cottage this week sits at the edge of the beach, in a large attractive sandy swimming cove. It’s the ultimate indignity knowing this wonderful temptation calls to him to swim and yet …………… he must resist for the greater goal of trying to restore his health sufficiently to reach Lands End.
