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!

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.

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 …
