return to the shore (day 54 and 55)

with 5 comments

For a few days of my virtual travel along the Cornwall coast, I haven’t been seeing much of the coast.  This is because my route took me inland, to skirt the tributaries of the Helford River.  Now, though, I am travelling along the coast again.

This is the famous Lizard Coast, called, not for the serpentine rock in the area, or for any reptile, but after the Cornish word meaning ‘high court’ (Lys Ardh).  I have seen a few references to the Lizard, including this sign in St. Keverne …

I haven’t attempted many people in my paintings, but in the watercolour below, I tried to capture a couple of the many people I saw enjoying the walk along the coastal road in Coverack.  With artists’ licence, I paired two people who in real-life have likely never met one another !!!!
