Walking The Walk

This morning we dropped Hugo off at BF Adventure, where he had a full day of outdoor activities along with other members of the CAT Group...
 The weather has been beautiful yet again, so we've all a great day!

We visited Miss Peapods for breakfast...

Which is situated in Jubilee Wharf on the Fal Estuary, an eco-development in Penryn.

The views are stunning...

And the food is fabulous!

Their veggie brekkie was one of the best we've had!

Sime thought we should sample a cake too, so we shared this wholesome chocolate cake...

And it was very yummy!

One of Sime's arty shots on the harbour near the cafe...

We decided to have a look at the creeks on the Helford Passage & thought this was interesting...

There were lots of fields of daffodils, not sure why they haven't been picked...

Then we came across this place: Potager Garden
It doesn't open until April & has a veggie cafe, but they invited us in to have a look around...

And we wished we were living there!

Freerange chickens with lots of space...

And a Woodland with lots more daffs...
Nice folks, nice place - look forward to visiting again when they officially open!

We then went to a place called Mawnan, where we hoped to find a beach.
Instead, we found a church...

Surrounded by woodland in a very quiet spot...

Looks like it's a popular place!

We could hear the sea, so took a walk in the woods to see if we could find it!

The footpath joined part of the South West Coast Path.
And again the views were stunning!

We didn't make it to the beach, as we couldn't find the path down!

But we did find a bench & Sime became his usual unearthly self!

And I had concerns...

About who's going to eat the last cookie...

And of course, we shared it - so smiles all round!

Today has reminded us of how much we love Cornwall & there are so many hidden gems here.
A long distance walk is definitely on the cards for a future holiday, no more big road trips.
 It's time to walk our talk!

Back to work tomorrow...

You life in the most beautiful place in the world. I really look forward to seeing the pictures you take of all the wonderful places you live near.

You certainly live in a place with stunning views, but you also bother to be aware of your surroundings. So many people are deaf and blind to the world around them.

It really made my day yesterday to see a flock of waxwings. It was their singing that made me look up and notice them. No else realised they were there. Their curiosity wasn't even aroused by a mad woman staring up into the trees. They probably didn't notice me, either. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera on me, although they were fairly high up so it might not have done any good if I had.

Looks like you had a lovely day :) I especially like the sound of Miss Peapods cafe, it looks so sweet!

Thank you all.

It wasn't really until we moved to Cornwall, that we were aware of the changing seasons. Being surrounded by nature & living in a very quiet hamlet, means that we just see so much more!

Top Of The World

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. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. 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 i…

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 …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
