Heart to Heart

Victoria has made her home in St. Agnes, a small surfing village, in Cornwall, England.  She surfs and teaches young children to ride the waves.  I stayed in her charming cottage just a short walk to the beach.  She just had that door built.  Do you think my heart inspired hers?

Let's Go Surfing Now........

I love Perry, Victoria's son,  and he loves me.  We played together a lot when I stayed in St. Agnes.  He showed me the ropes when it came to surfing.  Hmmmmmmm.....which board will I choose to ride?  What do you think, Perry?

Rub a Dub Dub.......

Mary owns the Aggie Surf Shop with her husband, Chops, right in the heart of St. Agnes.  They rent and recycle wet suits for summer visitors as this surfing town's population explodes when the weather gets warm.  Mary rinses out the salt water and prepares this "Shortie" for her next customer.  Could that customer be me?

Uh, Oh.......

Yes, surfing can be a dangerous sport!  That's what Markie learned when he was riding a wave called "The Cribber" in Newquay, north of St. Agnes.  He was tow in surfing, knocked off his board, and the wave pounded it into his ankle. impact fracture!  His friend, Mason, is keeping him company while they chat with customers in front of the Aggie Surf Shop.
