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,

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 …

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.



We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.


The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.



The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.


We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

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…
