Walking The Walk

This morning we dropped Hugo off at BF Adventure, where he had a full day of outdoor activities along with other members of the CAT Group...
 The weather has been beautiful yet again, so we've all a great day!

We visited Miss Peapods for breakfast...

Which is situated in Jubilee Wharf on the Fal Estuary, an eco-development in Penryn.

The views are stunning...

And the food is fabulous!

Their veggie brekkie was one of the best we've had!

Sime thought we should sample a cake too, so we shared this wholesome chocolate cake...

And it was very yummy!

One of Sime's arty shots on the harbour near the cafe...

We decided to have a look at the creeks on the Helford Passage & thought this was interesting...

There were lots of fields of daffodils, not sure why they haven't been picked...

Then we came across this place: Potager Garden
It doesn't open until April & has a veggie cafe, but they invited us in to have a look around...

And we wished we were living there!

Freerange chickens with lots of space...

And a Woodland with lots more daffs...
Nice folks, nice place - look forward to visiting again when they officially open!

We then went to a place called Mawnan, where we hoped to find a beach.
Instead, we found a church...

Surrounded by woodland in a very quiet spot...

Looks like it's a popular place!

We could hear the sea, so took a walk in the woods to see if we could find it!

The footpath joined part of the South West Coast Path.
And again the views were stunning!

We didn't make it to the beach, as we couldn't find the path down!

But we did find a bench & Sime became his usual unearthly self!

And I had concerns...

About who's going to eat the last cookie...

And of course, we shared it - so smiles all round!

Today has reminded us of how much we love Cornwall & there are so many hidden gems here.
A long distance walk is definitely on the cards for a future holiday, no more big road trips.
 It's time to walk our talk!

Back to work tomorrow...

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Purposefully Living

How long have we dreamed of buying a place in France?  Of living in the mountains? Probably ever since we got together over 30 years ago... So here we are, we are finally doing it!  We have paid our deposit, met with the notaire and will be receiving the keys to this cute little house in January!  Next year will bring about a lot of change for us and we are very excited, we have been focusing on our lives in a positive and intentional way, meditating each morning and visualising the things we desire. The incredible thing is - it works, it really does.
We have proved over and over again that it is possible for us to do this - being in a good place and having the ability to really focus always makes things happen. We consider everything we have achieved so far, things which seemed so out of reach, but we wanted them and somehow they came into our lives...  From cars, holidays, our business, the B&B to houses. It has meant taking quite a leap of faith at times, even when the likihoo…

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …
