Rewilding Our Life - Day 19

It's the first time in years that we've had 2 days off over a holiday weekend & we really hadn't given much thought on just how many folks there would be out & about... 
Our original plan was to go to Cardinham Woods, but on arriving to a full car park & a heaving picnic area - we turned round & carried on.

Eventually, we found Deerpark Forest near Looe...
There wasn't anyone else around - amazing, considering the amount of folks we'd seen elsewhere.

We couldn't believe that we managed to eat our picnic without folks walking by...
Thousands of people are holidaying in Cornwall this weekend & not one of them or any locals came along to disturb us, it was bliss.

We took the 3 mile trail.

We had periods of chatting & spent time in silence - enjoying the sounds & the warmth of the sun.


We climbed high above the trees...

And saw piles of chopped down trees.

Such a beautiful day...

We were in the forest for over 3 hours & by the end of our walk we had only seen 2 other people, 1 dog & 1 robin... We heard lots of birds, but didn't see any deer.

We took a detour home, as it was a lovely evening...
Colliford Lake - where we enjoyed skinny-dipping on our 25th wedding anniversary!!!

Roughtor & Brown Willy... 
We'll take you with us to these highest points in Cornwall one day soon.

The sun setting over Bodmin Moor...

Such a happy, fabulous day!

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.
