We stayed in Tintagel for two days since it's such an important location for Morgan's character and understanding her past. I really wanted to get an idea of what it might be like to live there.
Lucky for me, I get to have my character's home in such a cool place. Makes researching a lot more fun.
One of my favorite parts of the trip was taking a long walk along the Celtic Sea. It's the most beautiful walk I've ever been on. Tintagel's ocean is swoon-worthy with the dramatic cliffs and dark teal sea. You can't go anywhere without seeing a really photographable scene.
I could imagine that for Morgan le Fay, it must be a really important part of her memory in Tintagel, to be by the sea where she practiced fire. A really serene section in her otherwise tumultuous life.
Slate everywhere creates naturally beautiful patterns:
I hope you enjoyed the photos of the beautiful Cornish beaches!
Excerpt from Henge:
"Tintagel rolls by. The deep teal sea crashes into dark jagged rocks underneath heavy clouds. Occasionally the silver sunlight peeks through, like a flash of a knife, getting a few rays in before a cloud rolls over it again. We pass endless fields that seem to be only occupied by sheep—fluffy and sleepy as dreams."--Henge (Le Fay Series)
