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

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 …

For two weeks due to the need for time off...
We're staying on this farm...
In a beautiful part of Wales...
See you soon!
