The Song of The Sea

Print by Simon Bor

A mile or so south east of Land's End you'll find a sandy cove. Exposed to the Atlantic, the sea has worn a narrow channel into the cove, which is called "The Song of the Sea".

It could have been the inspiration for the cover of Devil's Rock; the book by Devon based writer, Chris Speyer and published by Bloomsbury in 2009.

It was also the location for the 1966 Doctor Who story, The Smugglers.

Twelve Legs of Lamb

Our neighbours are bottle feeding three lambs. The trouble with this is that they are as tame as a cat or dog.

I was making myself a nice cup of coffee, when I heard something behind me. The three lambs had left my neighbour's garden, crossed our orchard and skipped into my kitchen.

My dog was a surprised as I was; she attempted to round them up, but one head butt from the male lamb sent her running for cover.
