the Coming Storm

Jak Stringer

Heamoor

On the 18th March I took my Dad to his hospital appointment. On the way home we usually stopped for a coffee but because he was no longer allowed to, we got a takeaway coffee at Portreath and sat and watched the storm coming. We didn’t know what the future held.
