Rewilding Our Life - Days 20 to 23

Sunday's weather was pretty awful here...
It rained on & off throughout the day, so we enjoyed a quiet time at home by the woodburner. It was also our last day of freedom for a while, so it was nice to just chill out.
The rain stopped by 8pm, so as Bebe wasn't here - we enjoyed a walk down towards the beach.

This is the view from the first stile, which is just 5 minutes from our door...

And this is from the second stile, just further down the lane.
We stood & watched the sea for a while...

And headed back up the lane when the rain started again.
We didn't see anyone else - which was nice!

Monday was the first time in 3 weeks that we were unable to do any rewilding, we had a serious problem at work which took time to sort & the aftermath continued throughout our evening, on top of this - Bebe returned home from respite, so it was chaotic!

We made up for it on Tuesday...
The sun came out in the afternoon & we were able to play on Hemmick Beach.

Sime made a rock sculpture...

And I made a fire pit.

A lovely time...

Yesterday, we visited Porthluney Beach - which is the next cove on from Hemmick.

Another lovely day, though a bit windy.
This beach took quite a bashing during the winter storms.

Though the sleepers are mostly still standing...

Behind the beach is Caerhays Castle, which you may be able to just about see...
The Castle has been used in a few TV productions, as it is a stunning location.

We had a tough day at work again yesterday, so it was lovely to just sit & watch the sea again for half an hour... Notice how Sime's face is getting hairy?

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 …

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 …
