“SOME DAY ………..
AFTER MASTERING THE WINDS, THE WAVES, THE TIDES AND GRAVITY,
WE WILL HARNESS THE ENERGIES OF LOVE.
AND THEN, FOR THE SECOND TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD,
HUMANKIND WILL HAVE DISCOVERED FIRE”

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

POWDERHAM CASTLE

Powderham Castle stands in an exquisite location, by the estuary of the River Exe in Devon county. Established in 1391 by Sir Philip Courtenay, the castle is presently, the royal residence of the 18th Earl This is a lovely place to visit.
My mum used to talk about Gabriel Courtenay, they were wrens together in WW2 and had a great comraderie as well as working really hard during the war.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.
