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.

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.

Love Kay and Sime xx


A Year Of Wonder

What an incredible year we have had...


We downsized to spend 12 months in a sweet little house with the most stunning views of the sea.

We were treated to an amazing holiday in Canada, thanks to our kind and beautiful friend Richard...




It was fantastic to spend time with Richard and his fabulous family...  We adore them all very much and will always be grateful to him for his incredible generosity!
We had lots of new work opportunities come our way, which have kept us extremely busy and have enabled us to continue living here - The price for a bit of luxury!
We now work in more stunning properties and we also spent the summer season at the youth hostel with a lovely team...



All the kidlets are happy living their alternative lives...  2 of them own a caravan, 2 of them live in that caravan, 2 of them gave up their flat to do a long term house sit and all of them have exciting plans ahead.





We have come to realise that for us, our sea view isn't worth the hard work and what we both …
