Looking to the left of where I photographed Peel Castle in the previous upload, you’re overlooking Fenella Beach. Named after this lady, Fenella, who was perched up on the banking near the start of the causeway leading to the castle.
Fenella was a mysterious half-Moorish women in Sir Walter Scott's 1823 novel 'Peveril of the Peak', and this statue of her stands 7 feet (2.1 metres) tall and was carved from a single piece of ash by artist Nick Barlow in 2011.
Another year older today, but despite the lockdown received 4 birthday cards – 4 more than I expected! Have got many greetings however on Facebook & Messenger. Other than that it'll be much like any other day, which is like any other day, which is like any other day… 😬 Might celebrate tonight though with an extra whisky or two whilst watching TV 🥃🥃
One thing about the older you get, the quicker time passes, each year quicker than the previous (especially at my age) - however, the current lockdown has magically slowed down time! 😃
