Talland House View: July 12, 2015

View from Talland House in 2002 and 2012
And then just opposite the Lookout place a great square oatmeal coloured hotel appeared when we came down in July.  My mother said, with her dramatic gestures, that the view was spoilt; that St. Ives would be ruined.  For all these reasons, then, a house agent's board appeared one October in our gardens; and as it needed repainting, I was allowed to fill in some of the letters -- This House to Let -- from a pot of paint.  The joy of painting mingled with the dread of leaving.
