A Piece Of Cornwall


Another day off, so we thought we would explore more of the Lizard...

And even though the weather forecast sounded bad...
It actually turned out to be hot again!

We decided to have a look at the Eastern side of the peninsula... 
So from Falmouth - we headed to St Keverne.

Where we found a roadside cottage selling all sorts...

Even old cart wheels for £40!

Then it was on to Coverack...

With it's quaint little harbour.

And this lovely old place...

Named after a famous lifeboat guy who was based there...

And now it's a quirky little takeaway...

With outside seats to enjoy the view.

A fascinating place. 

These were a group of folks going out to do some wind surfing.

Then it was back on the road again, passing nearby Goonhilly Earth Station, which BT closed down last year!

The Lizard has lots of thatched cottages.

This is the lane down to Cadgwith Cove.

A little place where time has stood still...

Apart from getting wired to modern technology!

A really pretty place.

Then we arrived at the very bottom of the Lizard & The Lizard Lighthouse.
You can holiday in the cottages around it!

This is the view just down from the lighthouse...

And this is the most southerly beach on mainland Britain...

The National Trust are responsible for all of this area.

There are a few of these shacks just on the path down to the beach.
This one is The Serpentine Works.

On the cliff edge!

The disused lifeboat station...

Baby birds in a hut next to it...

And a close up view!

The beach.

A seagull enjoying the view!

On our journey North again & we found this on a map...

The remains of a windmill!

It's just in a field, so there's no info...

But it's very picture worthy!

Next to the windmill is a small airfield & in the distance there's a hovering helicopter. 

It's a beautiful spot.
We love getting off the beaten track & have promised ourselves a picnic & walk around this area soon!


Bye for now,
Kay & Sime xx

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 …

Being Grateful

We made a pact a few years ago that we would only leave Meadowcroft if we found somewhere really special to live. One of the most important things featured on both of our lists was to have stunning views, so when we found our French house - the view just blew us away!
We are still waiting for the sale to go through and so far, it's been nine months since our offer was accepted... The notaire discovered a slight glitch in that the terrace was actually owned by a neighbour. It was then agreed that the present owner of the house was to purchase the terrace and shortly before the sale went through the neighbour unexpectedly died... His estate is now being transferred to his brother, who is more than happy to sell the terrace and we have been asked if we would like to continue to wait. 
We are not in any rush and know that our little house will be worth waiting for...   Maybe the exchange rate will be more favourable by the time we go through the sale and in the meantime - we are maki…

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate...


But we know...
And this is one thing which makes living here difficult.
How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?  It just doesn't make sense.
