We started off at Tintagel, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. Here I am excited beyond belief at Merlin's Cave at the Sea below the Castle!
|"You're a Wizard, Merlin!"|
|My wife at Tintagel Castle|
|Tintagel Castle ruins.|
|We climbed a lot of stairs. Worth every step!|
|Looking back over some of the ruins to Tintagel Village.|
|This spooky piece of art now stands guard.|
|A part of the gardens at Lanhydrock, Cornwall.|
|The cliffs near Lands End, Cornwall.|
|A shipwreck! (from the 1950s)|
|At Lands End pointing towards home.|
"There's a feeling I get when I look to the West."
|Mên-an-Tol, or the Madron stones|
|Lonely Cornish Tin Mine.|
|My wife helping to hold up the stone on Lanyon Quoit, actually quite sturdy as we climbed on it.|
|Some of our group performing on the stones.|
|Would you go down this path?|
|I lagged behind the group to take this photo of the prayer tree at the sacred spring.|
|The group was not happy when I used my flash to snap this pic inside the ancient church ruin.|
But I had to do it for Sir Galahad, Sir Bors, and Sir Peredur (Perceval).
|You see, the Operetta is called "The Pirates or Penzance; or, the Slave of Duty" |
because Frederick was bound in service of his indentures to the Pirate King. Oh, never mind.
