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!

Such lovely pictures. I went with my family to Looe. Big Mistake, too many people, beach completely full. Walked round for a while then headed home. Looe so much better in the Winter. Will try Deerpark next time.

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 …

Just A Quickie

We got back in the early hours of yesterday, worked & we're working again until Wednesday. When we'll have a day off to be volunteers at Hugo's home education group... 
We had a very productive time in Stoke, got lots sorted again around Bebe & had great fun with her during a meal out... We also saw Grandad Gerry & Nana Footstep (Sime's Dad & Step-Mum), which is always lovely!
I had a tooth out - the tooth I had filled a couple of months ago...  Apparently, the filling had been put directly on to the nerve of the tooth, so no wonder I'd been suffering (my jaw has had a dull ache for a while & my tooth was very sensitive to cold drinks & food). The filling hadn't set underneath, so this dentist said he wasn't surprised that I'd had a metallic taste in my mouth. The guy was lovely, he was very patient with my stupid behaviour & Sime was with me throughout holding my trembling hand!
We had a bit of free time too - saw a film & on …
