These last couple of weeks we’ve been very aware of the past all around us, still making its presence felt. These stones embedded in the cliff represent the beach surface of 120000 years ago.
And this exhibition on the 1980’s shows that things never really change, only the details vary.
A unique setting and a lovely couple. More at Alpha Book Club.
And I had a dirt great gobbet of it today. Not sure if the best bit was the soldiers,
or the artefacts
or the touches of real life
or maybe the smalls…
The school where I’m chair of governors had a visit from Ofsted back in May – delighted to say that we’re still rated good. Lots of positive comments from pupils and parents and a real recognition that ours is a school where every child matters, irrespective of background.
Not Porthkennack, (not even the area it’s based on) but very similar geology. It can only be Jersey, especially with that quality of light.
Just been having a wander up the back of Jersey racecourse. This is le Pinacle, at the base of which are Neolithic and Bronze age banks and the remains of a Roman temple.
Facing this on the cliff across a little gorge is a reminder of starker, more recent times.
And in the gorge, the guns some of these emplacements held before they were disposed of during the liberation.
