What A Difference A Day Makes

We seem to have developed a rather nice addiction to walking the coast...

Yesterday turned into a 3 hour trek...

With lots of mud...

Looking back at our hamlet on the right.

First there was one...

Then there were many...

We were heading to the next cove along from ours...

And although it was a beautiful Saturday morning...

There was no one else around...

First glimpse of Vault Beach...

Just cows...

And sheep for company...

Lamledra House & Woodland is ahead...

We always take a bag with us to pick up rubbish, so we must be beach heroes too!

Vault is at the bottom of quite a steep path...

But is well worth the effort...

On arrival there was one woman on her way off the beach.
Can you spot her red hat?

We spent an hour there & had the whole beach to ourselves...

And it was really quite warm sitting in the sun...

A lovely clean beach - the sign must be working!

It felt like we were on a desert island...

Midday sun...

Such a lovely day.
Unlike today, which is wet & cold - time to get the fire in & watch a film...

Happy not so Sun-Day!

Wow what a stunner of a walk. My lab Harry would have been in seventh heaven down on that beech. I see you have many gorse bushes along the way, have you ever tried gorse wine I its quite good.

Thanks Captain Shagrat! We've made tea with the petals, but never made wine - although we do have a recipe & the equipment... That sounds like a good idea!

I can see why that beach looks so beautiful and clean with good people like you walking around on it helping to pick up garbage! What a wonderful day you had.

Thank you Kath, Mel & Catherine!

The weather's so miserable now - it's hard to believe that it was so nice on Saturday...

You know, I can't remember what the weather was like here on Saturday. It was all a bit of a blur, but we did think the countryside was nice as we drove to Mum and Dad's so I guess it was nice. I made soup and bread in the morning to feed my brother-in-law (and the rest of us) for lunch as he came down to visit his mum. Then hubby and I drove down to help my mum with her shopping because she's having trouble walking again.
Mum said…
Thank you for a lovely walk. I walked by the sea today aswell.
Love from Mum

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 …

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.

Love Kay and Sime xx
