It's a small world!

I wouldn't normally take photos directly of someone's property but this rather attractive former farmhouse (Kinsmans Barns) in the centre of St Day is the site of rather a strange co-incidence!
I lived in a flat in the centre of Madrid for a few years. The Landlady, who also lived there, was English, in her 70s and was still giving English and Formal Dancing classes! She had lived in Spain since her early twenties and had already seen off 2 husbands!! I used to talk about this and that with her and one day I mentioned my parents were living in Cornwall. Her ears pricked up. 'Where abouts' she asked. 'Oh, a small place - you won't have heard of it, St Day'. Well, the upshot of all this is that this is the farm she was born in!!!
Sadly she died a few years back, necessitating a rapid flat hunt, which turned out OK in the end.
Sight and Sound. More Janis ... and why not.
