The Lizard

Here are some of the photos from our trip to The Lizard on Tuesday. 
The most southerly tip of mainland Britain... 
St Winwaloe Church is on the beach near Gunwalloe.

Weather beaten grave stones.

An interesting graveyard addition!

Inside the tiny church.

The roof.

The overgrown, but interesting graves...

The Norwegian crew whose boat sank off the Cornish coast during the storms of Christmas 1915!

A German pilot who was killed in action in 1941.

One of the beaches in Church Cove...

And the other one!

The picturesque village of Gunwalloe. 

And a very nice Cornish Cream Tea!

We've had beautiful weather again today - perhaps we're finally going to have a proper Summer?

That'd be nice - we may even dig the tents out & have a few days camping!!!


Bye for now,

Kay & Sime xx

What an interesting place. Your treat looks yummy. We had rain all day, but it is supposed to be nice all week. Hope you get to use your tents.

Wow, the lizard looks beautiful! Look at those blue skies too! We're having hot weather as well - 34 degrees yesterday! phew!

Lovely photos Kay! I have a friend who lives at Cadgwith, but its years since we visited.
One of the things I was looking forward to, moving to Somerset, was its closer proximity to Cornwall.
Cant wait for our holiday in Port Isaac!
Yes I agree, we have waited a long time for summer. The festival is over, so need for any more rain LOL
Spotted girls in Sainsburies this morning, with sunburned legs, but only half way down their calves, to where their wellies were LOL

Mel - We're hoping to go camping on The Lizard, it's really lovely!

Sooz - We had a thunder storm today & it's not hot like yesterday!

Kath - Cadgwith is lovely! I bet it's a relief when the festival is over - the roads are probably thinning out now, saw some photos of the flooding there...

Nic - Have you booked your honeymoon yet? If not, think about Cornwall - there are lots of romantic places to stay!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
