Today is St.Ives Feast day. Another inspiring day for me. An ancient celebration of total ‘Cornish-ness’ and I loved it.
The procession through the cobbled street with the children dancing traditional dance to the music to the holy well, was quite haunting. I felt like I was in another time, you could almost feel the ghosts of long ago, dancing too.
The colours of the Cornish tartan, and the mayors red robes, the green ivy everywhere was beautiful. Lovely to watch and be part of it, and the shiny pennies at the end and the childrens shinning faces as they were given there pennies… was a picture!
