Our Trip to Britain in August 2023: Part 2 Mousehole and Ancient Sites in Cornwall


During our stay in Cornwall, UK, we visited several other places after Land's End.

We hiked on steep footpaths down to the small fishing village of Mousehole, pronounced ‘Mouzelle’. The header image shows the view from the hill overlooking Mousehole.

One morning, we visited the local megaliths, the Merry Maidens stone circle. We often passed isolated megaliths and stone crosses, although we don’t know if they were standing at the original sites.


Another afternoon we walked to a hill top with a pile of rocks called Chapel Carn Brea. Five Dartmoor ponies were grazing near the rocks. I took a picture of three horses.

On the same day, we hiked across footpaths to another hill with an ancient site called Bartine Castle. Most of the stones were deep in the heather and gorse. We found a Holy well on top of the hill. Stones are placed around a well of water from a spring.

Finally, here’s a hazy view over lovely Porthcurno Beach with light yellow sand and turquoise-hued sea. Two ponies were sheltering in the rocks. The cliffs are steep here and rain was forecast, so we refrained from climbing into the crowded beach.

After our week in Cornwall, we drove to my brother’s house for more family get-togethers. People in their extended family often drop in for a meal or stay the night.  

This will probably be my last post from the UK since we’re flying back to Atlanta in a couple of days.

Our Trip to Britain in August 2023: Part 2 Land’s End, Cornwall


After our niece’s wedding, we spent a week in Cornwall. We stayed in a converted barn on a small farm near the tiny village of Kerris. On our first trip, we went to see Land’s End, the southernmost tip of England. The top photo shows a cove by the promontory of Lands End.

We parked at Sennen village and hiked along the coastal footpath to Land’s End (it’s less crowded and parking is cheaper!).

View of Sennen Beach

The coastal paths have wonderful views of the cliffs and sea. The hills are covered in purple heather and yellow gorse flowers.

Here’s a closeup of pretty heather flowers.

Land’s End has several cafes, restaurants, and tourist shops. It also houses a noteworthy relic, the First and Last Post Box.


The rocky seashore includes fascinating natural phenomena like this rock arch in the cliff adjacent to Land’s End.

Our Trip to Britain in August 2023: Part 1 Bristol and Lee, Devon


This summer, we traveled in Southwest Britain during most of August. We stayed with my brother for the first few days and he took us on several hikes through the woods near Bristol.

His house is close to farmland. We walked around fields of corn. One local farm keeps horses as shown in the top picture of a mare and her foal.

I love the pretty wildflowers blooming in the woods and along the hedgerows. These Harebells or Scottish Bluebells are among my favorite wildflowers.

In the next stage, we drove to Devon for our niece’s wedding. The ceremony and reception were in different sites near Ilfracombe. I took a few pictures near the reception in the small coastal village of Lee. The local church of St Matthew, and village houses are typical of rural England.

The village ends at Lee Bay, a cove with a stony beach overlooking the Severn Estuary.

If you take a vacation in England, make sure you visit the rural regions and admire the picturesque villages with thatched cottages and flower gardens. You can also hike on many footpaths throughout the countryside.

Mid-year Report on my Writing and Publishing Progress


In the past six months, I published one SciFi novel and ran a Kickstarter campaign for a special edition of my superhero story.



In March, I published Karrik, Book 6 in Taxyon Space, near-future Sci-Fi adventure and romance.


The fates of six people are at stake.

Karrik Kenton Tallis, Third of the Flaming Comets, endures a miserable existence in a hospice on his home planet. Unable to walk or speak more than a single word, he misses his older brothers and is unaware of their sacrifice to ensure his care. He cherishes a faint hope of recovering his health.

Karrik’s life improves when his brothers return to Rishalt with their human companions. Alarik, First of the Triad, is escorting Phoebe Wong with her brother and a mysterious alien object for an audience with Prime Jadel. The middle brother, Baswin, is traveling home with Holly and Rosie Moon. The Moon sisters are enrolled in an experimental program to train human psychics to navigate in hyperspace and relieve Earth’s governments of their onerous reliance on Warrish tripilots. Rosie, a psychic healer, desires to help Karrik despite the conflict with her duty to humanity.

But the water world of Rishalt holds many hazards, both above and beneath the waves. Can the alien treasure help the three brothers to conquer the challenges and unite with their chosen partners? Read the scintillating story of the Flaming Comet brothers to learn the answers.
