Good Morning all! Here’s the latest from
The morning of August 7, I left Bath en-route for Cornwall and the seaside resort of Penzance. Unlike previous train journeys, this one was a piece of cake: no changes and I reserved a seat the whole way. All four hours was a lovely trip down into Cornwall.
I once directed and played a role in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance, but I had other reasons as well for visiting the Cornwall coast. I’ve actually set two of my novels there. The first was a time travel novella I’m currently turning into a novel, working title Falling in Time, and the second is the upcoming fourth book of The Widows’ Club series, Much Ado About a Widow, which takes place primarily in St. Just, a mere eight miles west of Penzance.
My B&B this time was The Warwick Guest House, a beautiful prospect that overlooks the water. Almost better, I was situated on the first floor. No steps!
My first night I took a stroll down the Promenade, right beside the water. Beautiful weather, sunny and a mild temperature in the mid-60s.
Not only did I go for a walk, I stopped at Fraser’s fish and chips where they made a fabulous gluten-free version of the classic and in different kinds of fish. I had the hake, a locally sourced fish from the waters I was walking beside. Not only delicious, but worth coming back to Cornwall for next year as well!
Next day I took the Hop on-Hop off bus on a tour of the southern tip of Cornwall. I went through Mousehole, Lamorna, Porthcurno, Land’s End, Sennen Cove, all the way around to my goal: St. Just. Because Georgie and Rob’s story is set on the Cornish coast in the town of St. Just, I had to pay a visit and take some photos.
My second day in St. Just I used to rest and do some writing. I’ve started on the last of my House of Pleasure books, Only Pleasure Will Do, and I got three chapters edited and a fourth almost completed.
Next morning I was off and running again to another part of the country. Those details coming soon!
