Brythen

Attacking the hillfort

It stopped raining!  Well, not entirely, but at least enough to remind us what sun and blue skies look like.
The river Lynher was very full and cold and clear and fierce, but it was inside its banks, which it was not last time we came this way.  I wished I'd brought the real camera, but I didn't, so I just took a few phonephotos.

Someone mentioned when I posted about reading 'Farthing' by Jo Walton that it was written as a response to the worldbuilding of Josephine Tey.  I'd only read 'The Daughter of Time', which is the one that tries to rehabilitate the reputation of Richard III.  So I read 'The Francise Affair' and 'The Singing Sands'. 'Farthing' makes so much more sense read as Tey fanfic than it does as stand-alone.
