No not another name for a Prog Rock band. I searched through British films on Netflix last night and I found one filmed in 1973: Malachi's Cove.
Anthony Trollope also called his novel 'The Seaweed Children'. Have you seen the film or read the book even?
It's set in Cornwall in the nineteenth century. A poor young girl called Mally (Veronica Quilligan) lives with her elderly and infirm grandfather in a hovel overlooking the beach where she gathers seaweed to sell it for fertilizer with her donkey.
It's a beautiful film with great actors like Veronica Quilligan and I remember David Bradley in Kes. The two giggling girls in the village shop went on to appear in Birds Of A Feather. I really enjoyed the film.
We have a few oil paintings from Cornish holidays and we once visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan. The walled vegetable garden is idyllic.
I often said I would like to live in Cornwall but it never was affordable to do so but at least we did manage live in the countryside next to the sea here in Ireland.
Would you like to live somewhere else? I still dream of moving to Portugal at least for the winter anyway.
