Good news about Cornwall Lookout

Author is happy to see that old stomping ground won't be lost.

Dear Editor

Delighted to learn that the Look-out on Cornwall Mountain will be restored and used again.

Ross Darlington and I have the  happiest memories of our time up there, camping, painting the wild flowers, and exploring. Watching the hang gliders jumping off the mountain into the air current was another thrill. Ross’s ashes were scattered to the winds from the spot.

By strange coincidence, I had just written some fiction as part of a short story I’ve been working on, about the look-out man and the atmosphere around the spot.  To find it on the front page of The Journal was a very pleasant surprise.
