A story to read

Far away in Cornwall there is a mountain in the sea called St Michael's Mount. If you go there when the tide is out, make sure you leave in time or else the sea comes in and catches you unawares. But the mount wasn't always like it is now. This is how it all started.

It is always fun in May visiting the largest Cornish festival in the world at the Copper Coast, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia. This year it was so exciting seeing my own granddaughters dancing down Kadina's main street in the Furry Dance.
