glimpses of country life – drying day

with 5 comments

For the last two weeks, I have continued on my stationary bike, touring (virtually) through the Cornwall countryside.  Since I last reported, I have gone from Rinsey Croft to the coastal town of Prussia Cove.  Since the road does not run along the coast, I have spent most of my biking miles travelling on short roads from the highway to various coastal towns.  In this stretch, I biked for 150 minutes, and saw about 9 km of the Cornwall countryside.


Rinsey to Prussia Cove


As I bike, I love seeing the vignettes of country life captured by Street View.  Gates, of course, and stone walls.  Cows and horses grazing in the meadows.  People hiking along the roads and working in their gardens.  And a line of washing, hung out on the line to dry.

  1. Ah, your drawing and beautiful painting take me back – how I loved it when I used to hang clothes out to dry!

    • Hi Barbara. I used to hang our my laundry too, but the tree supporting the line fell down and we didn’t replace it. Hummingbirds used to come and visit my flowered tablecloth when I hung it out. Jane

      • Oh what a sweet memory, Jane! Sometimes when I was hanging clothes a lady bug would land on an item. My daughter would coax it onto her finger and let it crawl around on her hand until it finally flew away.
