We had a wonderful time with our French visitors. We miss them all now that they've gone again, and we're looking forward to many more exchanges between the mythic artists of Dartmoor and of France in the future. As for me, I'm catching up on work (and sleep!), and will return to this blog properly on Monday morning.
In the picture above, Howard stands in the courtyard of Lewtrenchard Manor, a lovely country hotel on the other side of the moor where he took me for my birthday. (Click on the picture for a larger version.) It's a Jacobean building restored and expanded in the 19th century by Reverend Sabine Baring-Gould, the great collector of Dartmoor myth, folklore, and folksongs...and it's one of my favorite places in Devon. Sitting in the good Reverend's library, or walking though his beautiful grounds, truly feels like stepping back in time.
See you Monday!
