When we’re not working, we like to spend our leisure time walking and visiting new places. We thought it might be of some value to our website visitors to include our day out photos on the blog to inspire families to get out and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We’ve also included a map of the location of our visit, to make it easier to find.
So hope you enjoy this resource by simply following the places to visit link
Rocks are hard objects we don’t think of as bendable in any sense of the word, and yet Spanish artist José Manuel Castro López has found a way to manipulate stone so that it appears soft and pliable. His stunning sculptures don’t even look real, as the rocks he carefully crafts are full of impossibly awesome twists and folds. Simply looking at his work makes you question everything you think you know about rocks.
On a recent visit to Cornwall, we had the pleasure of stopping in the picturesque village of Polruan beside the river Fowey, just a short journey across the river is Fowey which is also featured on this page. Well worth a visit, but just be warned, the roads are very steep and if you struggle with mobility it is not the easiest of terrains to deal with. There’s a map at the bottom if you’d like to check it out.
There is a mixture of SLR photographs and phone camera photographs included on this page.
If you’ve wonder how to do the square social media videos that are so popular at the moment on platforms such as Instagram, and Facebook, I’ve added a demo using Sony Vegas Platinum here for you to check out.
Hawkstone Park Follies is described on its website as an historic woodland landscape featuring cliffs, crags, networks of caves, rhododendron jungles, stunning views and a series of extraordinary monuments built as a fantasy Theme Park over 200 years ago. After years of neglect the magical landscape was lovingly restored and reopened in 1993.
Parts of the park and the main walking routes contains several flights of steps, some natural ones carved into rock and some man made wooden ones. Much more than a stroll in the woods, this 2-3 hour adventure will awe anyone who succeeds in exploring its crags and crevices.
This is the second time we’ve visited the park, the first time being 15 years ago, when we were a little bit younger and fitter. But we had a fab day out just the same. A great visit with the family, but some areas might be difficult with young children, particularly if you’re trying to walk the full trail.
