St Anthony Head

We live at the top of The Roseland - a forked peninsula jutting out into the sea.
It has lots of little creeks, where folks with lots of money live...


This is Place House in Place...

Next to Place House...

From Place you can take a foot passenger ferry to St Mawes...
Which one day we must do! 

Instead we parked up on St Anthony Head, ate our picnic & enjoyed a fantastic walk...

St Anthony's lighthouse was at the start of our walk...

Views from the South West Coast Path...

The sea looked gorgeous...

With unspoilt beaches... 

And exciting little bridges...

Looking back at the lighthouse...

It's hard to believe how hot it got - when it's so wet & miserable today...




St Mawes Castle over the other side...

We eventually went into a lovely, cool woodland...

Past the bee hives...

And into a church...

A church which no longer has a congregation...

Back into the heat...

Through the overgrown churchyard...

And a medieval tomb... 

We were doing a circular walk & the lane back up to the top was very exposed...

There were lots of these tubs in fields, but we have no idea what they were for...
Does anyone know?



Nearly back to the beginning...

At the car park there is a cafe & as we had ran out of water a while back, we were ready for a drink...
And of course, something to eat.
We looked at the menu, saw there was nothing really suitable - but asked if we could just have a bread roll each with some salad. They said no... They had run out of salad!
We won't be going back - that's for sure...

This little chap enjoyed eating off other tables...

And we got very burnt!

A brilliant day & now only a week until we get to have a few days off!

Have a wonderful weekend!

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.
