“After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”

William R. Alger

(American author 1823 – 1905)

Looking over Stonehouse Creek and The Narrows from the historic ex Royal Navy’s – Royal William Victualling Yard, near the Devil’s Point.

Anticrepuscular rays beam out of a gap in an approaching storm front above the hamlet of Cremyl and bounce off the clouds to the estuary below.
