Rewilding Our Life - Day 5


Today our challenge was to dip our feet into a naturally occurring body of water...
As we live on the coast, we chose a beach... Little did we know yesterday - that we'd be doing this again today!
Unfortunately, the weather is a lot murkier...
 It has remained foggy throughout the day - such a contrast from our time on Hemmick Beach!

Bebe was with us today - she now does 5 days (Mon - Fri) at daycare & is with us at weekends. We do try our best to get her interested in being out in the fresh air, but she just detests it most of the time... We told her that we wanted to walk along Carne Beach & gave her the choice to either come with us or stay in the car (where she could watch us), but amazingly, she chose the beach!


Bebe was already regretting joining us...

Carne beach opens out at low tide, when it is then possible to walk along the shoreline to Pendower beach.


The sea is absolutely freezing!

Only Sime managed to stay still!

Once we got used to the temperature - we actually enjoyed it & were reluctant to stop!

Brrrr, looks like your weather was the same as ours today.
It's still good to get outdoors, though I think I would have kept my wellies on. Brave people :)

what a magical place you live in. Strangely enough I was dipping my feet in the white spring today.

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 …
