The challenge this week is the zigzag, a switchback in the mountains perhaps, or a pattern. I immediately thought of a slate wall I saw in Tintagel on the North Cornwall Coast, which led me on a journey through my visit there. Tintagel, according to Monmouth and Malory the keep of the Duke of Cornwall and birthplace of King Arthur. Merlin’s Cave rests below it on the shore, the ocean beating at it, carving it. Far above, the medieval keep lies on its stony bed, eminently defensible, incredibly beautiful in aspect. But the focus here is the pattern, the zigzag.
Man imitates nature ….
The local historic architecture at times seems to mimic the natural lines of the Cornwall Coast.
At Tintagel Castle, the same holds true.
I love the Cornwall coast; fell in love with it almost 30 years ago when I first saw it. My heart is at home there, with its crags, zigs and zags.
I'm a Canadian who loves our planet and the people living on it. I also love to travel and take pictures. I'd like to think I've improved a little, but am pretty sure there's room to be better.

What a stunning place!
It is, isn’t it. I’ve been there twice now and will go back as often as I can.
