Sunshine, Lanterns & Lights

How time flies...
It's almost a week since we were here...

Perranporth Beach...
The Watering Hole is the UK's only bar properly on a beach & The Dolphins Fly have played there!
Perranporth is on the north coast of Cornwall & 25 miles away from where we live.
We had dropped Hugo off at the home ed group & fancied spending the day enjoying the sun.
When I heard that Perranporth beach is 3 miles long... I thought we should check it out!





We had the most perfect time & the beach is amazing...
Though we both agreed that neither of us would like it when it gets busy!

Then it was on to Truro...

This cafe has changed name so often that I can't remember it's name now...
It used to be veggie & now sells meat & fish! :(

But they did make a very nice vegan sweet potato, pumpkin & coconut soup.

Sal & Ryan met up with us, as did our friend Jane - she had been supervising the home ed group & the teens had all gone off together to watch the parade.

Very suddenly the crowd just grew...

It was such a mild, dry evening - it seemed like the whole population of Cornwall had headed to Truro!

The lanterns were amazing...

And the Christmas lights were switched on! 

A steel band played...

And the pretty lights twinkled!

                                          
Sime's video...

While at Perranporth, we saw something we've never seen before being used by several people on the beach.
We thought we'd find some in the town & we were right!
No doubt, you all know what it is & it's probably just us - we don't get out enough...

I think Emperor's new clothes springs to mind, but does anyone know what they are called?

Night, night.

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


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 …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
