Food, Glorious Food

After last night's massive meal - we decided to have a late breakfast & being us, we chose something a little untraditional...

Nothing like spicy spaghetti...

Or Pesto penne to kick start the day!

Followed by my final French coffee.

It was a short drive to Dunkerque & after an accidental tour of the city centre - we boarded the ferry for our 2 hour sail back to the UK...

Where we had a few games of Uno.

The sun shone & the sea was calm.

And there was more pasta for us to sample...

Hugo was ready for his...

But Sime was slowing down.

And well yeh...

Spending the night near Dover & then tomorrow we're homeward bound!

Our month away has flown & although we're looking forward to seeing everyone, I still feel sad to leave France...
 I'm also peed off that I've left my latest book, with only 3 pages left to read & our shampoo bar (complete with tin) at the hotel in Bourges! Had to use hotel shampoo this morning which has caused my hair to be full of static & I keep getting shocks off things!

Anyway, back to work on Thursday - yippee!!!

I probably would appreciate the pictures of the delicious food more if I wasn't recovering from the flu. I like the new hairdo!!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
