Coastal path

Scope and Content

Black and white photograph of a footpath along the coast, with small trees either side leading towards the sea, a dry stonewall and fields to the left. [Taken during a holiday in France.] The edge is coloured in with blue crayon to create a border. Pasted onto a page in the notebook.

A manuscript caption below reads: 'The Ermitage', referring to text on the opposite page: 'Then there was the Ermitage, / where the whole thing began, / and where more than one luncheon took place'
