Free Time

Hugo's been busy with his Circus Workshop & Cornwall Alternative Teens group over the last couple of days, so we decided to take the two days off work...
 
Yesterday we were in Falmouth & this headland is called Pendennis Point...
 Henry VIII had Pendennis Castle built back in 1540 just above the headland, but it's very well hidden!

The sea was a lovely colour...

This is the lookout for the castle...

Some years ago, Sime & the kids saw seals in the sea here, but there weren't any yesterday!

The village across the water is St Mawes & another of Henry VIII's castles is just on the left.
We think the large sailing boat is one of the Tall Ships Of Charlestown, we see them quite often near to where we live. 
The speed boat looked like it should be moored in St Tropez!

 
Lots of activity & that's St Anthony's Lighthouse on the right.

The day was finished off with a treat...

Says it all...

Today we ventured over to the North Coast... 
St Agnes - another place we haven't visited for years!

Just down the road is Trevaunance Cove, a popular place for surfers...

The lifeboat ready for action!

A really beautiful place...


We then walked up the steep road...

The history of the cove...

 
A thatched cottage that's for sale...
A snip at £415,000!

Another thatched cottage, a holiday let - called Lantern Cottage.

An old tin mine...

Coffee destination...

A lovely little haven...


We then carried on walking up the steep footpath into St Agnes.
We love the name of this row of cottages...

We'd forgotten just how green it is here...

On the way back down to the cove we visited this little antique shack...

We ate here & forgot to photograph it...
But we can recommend their houmous, rocket & roasted pepper sandwiches!

An interesting old pub...

And this is where they make their beer (across from the pub).

After 2 days of fresh air & walks...
The old man was tired!

It's been nice not working...
Think we should do it more often!!!

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 …
