The Lizard

Here are some of the photos from our trip to The Lizard on Tuesday. 
The most southerly tip of mainland Britain... 
St Winwaloe Church is on the beach near Gunwalloe.

Weather beaten grave stones.

An interesting graveyard addition!

Inside the tiny church.

The roof.

The overgrown, but interesting graves...

The Norwegian crew whose boat sank off the Cornish coast during the storms of Christmas 1915!

A German pilot who was killed in action in 1941.

One of the beaches in Church Cove...

And the other one!

The picturesque village of Gunwalloe. 

And a very nice Cornish Cream Tea!

We've had beautiful weather again today - perhaps we're finally going to have a proper Summer?

That'd be nice - we may even dig the tents out & have a few days camping!!!


Bye for now,

Kay & Sime xx

What an interesting place. Your treat looks yummy. We had rain all day, but it is supposed to be nice all week. Hope you get to use your tents.
Wow, the lizard looks beautiful! Look at those blue skies too! We're having hot weather as well - 34 degrees yesterday! phew!

Lovely photos Kay! I have a friend who lives at Cadgwith, but its years since we visited.
One of the things I was looking forward to, moving to Somerset, was its closer proximity to Cornwall.
Cant wait for our holiday in Port Isaac!
Yes I agree, we have waited a long time for summer. The festival is over, so need for any more rain LOL
Spotted girls in Sainsburies this morning, with sunburned legs, but only half way down their calves, to where their wellies were LOL

Lovely photos :) I have always wanted to visit Cornwall and aim to do so one day!
Mel - We're hoping to go camping on The Lizard, it's really lovely!

Sooz - We had a thunder storm today & it's not hot like yesterday!

Kath - Cadgwith is lovely! I bet it's a relief when the festival is over - the roads are probably thinning out now, saw some photos of the flooding there...

Nic - Have you booked your honeymoon yet? If not, think about Cornwall - there are lots of romantic places to stay!

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx





Nettles

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...


Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…
