A day in the life of The Hookses

by quaesitor

While studying and writing talks for our All Souls week away next month, I’ve been getting up out of my chair every 5-10 minutes taking photos of exactly the same view. All day. Slightly bonkers you might think – and some will wonder how I get anything done. Well, fair question I suppose. But actually I’ve got the sort of will-o’-the-wisp mind that constantly needs interaction with different things. So bizarre as it may seem, I work best when juggling different things.

Anyway – here is the result. A very amateurish time-lapse video of the view from Uncle John’s desk, overlooking Westdale Beach in Pembrokeshire. A treat for all those who love The Hookses I hope…

    Thanks for posting this. It brings back happy memories of staying at The Hookses c. 1971 and persuading my husband to start growing a beard. He did and he still has it. (We first met at All Souls in 1969.)I remember watching many rabbits from the cottage, especially in the early morning and late evening. Is it still oil lamps only and no electricity?
