The Last Post

Dear followers, 

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that, for various unavoidable reasons, Penzance Post has run its course. 

The three of us started the blog to make a point to the town’s down-talkers: that Penzance boasts a bounty of goodness. In the process, we spent a thoroughly enjoyable couple of years discovering the area’s highlights, and we hope our findings have been of some use and inspiration. So, while the blog’s life has ended, and only scratched the surface of the town’s treasure, we believe its point has been made with unquestionable clarity. 

Because much of its content remains relevant, the blog (as it stands) will remain live for the foreseeable future.

We thank all our encouragers and contributors.

All the best,

Gerard, Dee and Nik

Penzance Palette #4

Umber pigments, varnished wood.
Oxidising iron chains.
Dirty browns and bracken banks.
Faded leaves and fibrous trunks.

Penzance Palette #3

Sunshine yellows, seaside lights.
Warning signals loud and clear.
Safety firsts and high-vis chrome.
Cheap and cheerful, welcome home.

Penzance Palette #2

Naval blues and cold sea hues.
Fishing rig in bright marine. 
A Royal pool, reflected sky.
Awash with lapis lazuli.
