Dodging The Rain


Spring is supposedly here, though not sure it has truly arrived in this area of Cornwall and it seems like everyone who lives outside of Portmellon is experiencing warmer, drier weather than we are.
 Our hibernating season has been a long one this winter, so even though it still has been quite chilly and wet - we thought it was about time we just got out there...

We met up with a friend for coffee on Sunday morning in Mevagissey and are happy to report that the newish cafe on the harbour, She Sells has very nice coffee and vegan smoothies.

It's been months since we walked round Meva, so afterwards we had a walk to the end...

Heading back up the hill...


Caerhays Castle beach - Porthluney - just before sunset...



Dusk on the Fal Estuary.
Canada Goose watching at Ruan Quay...


The Fal is quite high at the moment.



Swans further down the estuary...



We love taking what we call the back road from Truro, through the woodlands and out on to the marshland around the Fal. It is always peaceful and more often than not we have the place to ourselves. We were able to sit quietly and just listen to all the birds - Wonderful! :-)

Hope you are all enjoying some time outside.

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 …
