It's Monday

 

Come hell or high water, may we rise to meet the task at hand.

(The Roche Rock in Roche, Cornwall, England)

 

ADDENDUM:  For those of you asking if you can still climb this rock to the chapel on top,

the answer is YES, which Astrid and I both did here.

That is an amazing construction. A wonderful image.
Ginnie Hart: It's even more amazing than it looks, Michael, in real life. Astrid and I actually climbed up to the top chapel!
Joli vestige du passé.
Ginnie Hart: It still stands there, Martine, as a relic of today, which blows my mind.
Isn't that amazing! Love the POV, Ginnie!
Could your subtitle be referring to the presidential battle going on here? smile
Ginnie Hart: When I wrote my text, Elizabeth, I didn't know what I know now...that it was deemed a 57% win for Hillary. But yes, that and the hurricane still wreaking havoc. You know me well. smile

Brilliant! Are you able to climb that? Or is it closed off to the public?
Ginnie Hart: You are still able to climb it, Emily, yes, and both Astrid and I did. I think I will add this link to my text above: http://ginniehart.blogspot.nl/2016/10/england-2016-cornwalls-roche-rock-and.html
I know this is usually associated with Tristan and Iseult, but all I'm thinking is The Lion King.
Ginnie Hart: The Lion King is a perfect reference to this incredible place, Michael!
This is an imposing place, Ginnie, nicely shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. We were there all by ourselves and felt the awe of the place.

And it's not easy getting to the Chapel on the top, Ginnie. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: No, it's NOT easy, Lisl. HA! I have just added the In Soul link to my text above to answer the question about it you can still climb to the chapel. YES!

This is such a wonderful place to visit and I am glad I climbed all the way to the top, the view is breathtaking.
Love this POV.
Ginnie Hart: It's one of my best memories of Cornwall thus far, Astrid. We were so fortunate to not only see it but to climb it! I did add the In Soul link to my text above.

A premium site for post global warming, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: And Astrid and I can vouch for the possibility of getting to the top! smile

Now that's impressive, not only the view but also that you both climbed it. Elizabeth is a bit like a mountain goat, too, climbing any rock formation that we found in Derbyshire smile
Ginnie Hart: It really IS impressive, Alan. I know Elizabeth would have wanted to climb to the top with us. Actually, Astrid climbed up one more level than I did because I decided I needed to be sensible. My legs were a wee bit shaky after the first climb. smile

Quite a place isn't it Ginnie. I was intrigued to see it myself earlier this year when staying in Cornwall
Ginnie Hart: Definitely worth every minute we spent there, Chris...even with the climbing.

Oh, that is amazing - and I admire your courage and fitness to climb up the rock!
Ginnie Hart: I'll never forget it, Philine! smile Thank you.
Magnifique idée cette chapelle ainsi placée ..
Le calme doit etre assurée !
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: I bet a book could be written about it, Claudine!
This is fantastic Ginnie, I love that metal ladder. You and Astrid did well climbing up there.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. It was well worth every minute!
That is quite something Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It actually really is, Bill!

WOW!! that is an astounding point of view, Ginnie!! and I can't believe you guys climbed up there!! what an amazing picture!
Ginnie Hart: It's every bit as wonderful as it looks, Elaine. And because I'm not afraid of heights, all I had to worry about was my knee making it, which it did, just fine. But once I reached the first level, my sense and sensibility took over! HA!
What a wonderful scene. OMG! You climbed it!
Ginnie Hart: It was totally worth it, Mary. Thank you.
A strange place to build a chapel but you ladies done well to climb up there, your knee must be hanging in there very well.
Ginnie Hart: Very strange, indeed, Brian, but my knee did me proud. Thank you.

That thing was clearly built in the days before environmental studies. The habitat of some gerbil was probably destroyed and some shrike that fed on the gerbil was seriously impacted.

But that is somewhere in the past and now you have climbed this amazing rock (strong knees, ms Metallic) and took some brilliant pictures in the process.
Ginnie Hart: For sure it will be one place I'll never forget, Louis. Totally amazing in every way. So thankful my new knee was the strongest part of my body! smile Thank you.
un superbe endroit!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP. It really is.
Well done you!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sir.
He he... I am sure there are plenty more rocks much bigger than this in Utah? wink
Ginnie Hart: Now now, LC. Let's not start comparing apples and oranges, okay??? smile

Lovely view of the rock and the high place smile
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Cherry!!!
WOW! Wonderful! And even more so to be by yourself to experience this beautiful place! What a treat for you two!
Ginnie Hart: It was definitely a treat, Robin...and one I'll never forget. I have a feeling it's ho-hum to the locals and perhaps not known by others?
hats off to the two of you, Ginnie. great shot of this massive Roche Rock!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Ayush. We'll never forget it.

Wow...an arduous climb!
Ginnie Hart: It actually wasn't as bad as it looks, Bonnie...just a bit too wobbly in the knees for this 71-year-old! smile
