Sun, Sea & Dolphin Music


We're getting into the swing of things again - working hard & getting organised. 
It's such a great feeling & I love it when it all goes like clockwork!
Today, we were up & out early, 4 properties to prepare for this weekend's arrivals...
 Last night's business meeting* paid off & so everything was completed with time to spare! 
We even had time to visit our favourite cafe in Mevagissey for a cuppa, which has just re-opened after the floods in November & enjoyed soaking up the sun for a short while in the grounds of one house - so it's been a good day!

*In other words - sitting at our dining table, drinking herbal tea, eating home-made chocolate brownies, me making suggestions for our day ahead & taking notes, while Sime just agrees to everything & doodles.


The weather is wonderful, blue skies & so warm, though I suppose it's scary & not normal for this time of year - but still very welcome. We seem to have bypassed spring & gone straight into Summer, which probably means it will all be over by June & then will get cold & wet again...

We're working again in the morning, then tomorrow night - Sime has his first gig with The Dolphins Fly. He's learnt 22 original songs in 5 rehearsals & played along with their CDs whenever he's had a chance, so he's ready (though he doesn't think so). 


Hugo & I are going along tomorrow too & I'm really looking forward to it, as for the first time in nearly 25 years - I actually like the music he'll be playing! 
The gig is near to where we used to live in North Cornwall, so we're going early, taking a picnic & will be checking out our old haunts - hopefully, we'll have nice weather again...


Hope you all have a good weekend!

Hello Kay, I thought I'd come over and meet you all properly. How wonderful to live on the Cornish coast. We spent a lot of time down there over the years, St Ives, Launceston, Mawgan Porth, Tintagel and Liskeard, so we know what a varied and beautiful place it is. Enjoy the gig, it sounds fab!

Hi Kath - We love Cornwall too, living on the coast for us is great out of season. Our beach gets too busy in the Summer, but is just perfect in the Winter...

Pattypan, the weather's been great here - in fact yesterday we got a bit burnt in the garden!

The gig was great, but our internet won't let us upload photos at the moment, but will post them soon...

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 …

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…

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

What do you have planned?
