For those of you who read us by reader (and you all have noted that Google Reader is ending soon, right?), you won't have noticed the page I put up recently labelled Cornwall and Devon. No, this is not a real vacation we're planning--don't I wish. It's next term's geography study for Dollygirl, an experimental updating of two chapters in Charlotte Mason's Geographical Reader Book Three. Because, honestly, there's no point in saying that a town is full of cottagers making lace, if its economy has now turned to computer chips or whatever. And some of the newer facts I came up with are as interesting as Charlotte's old ones, I think. Did you know that Christopher Robin Milne used to run a bookshop in Dartmouth? Have you ever heard of the "Tinners' Hounds" in the town of Redruth, made from miners' old boots?
