Cape Crusade

Another day out yesterday...
This time to Cape Cornwall, which is near to Land's End - but quieter!

The small town of St Just was just getting over Lafrowda Festival.

The courtyard of the junk shop.

We loved this place - Yasmin's Deli...

Where we had a delicious Homity Pie & a Spicy Lentil Roll...
Served with stuffed olives, garlic & vine leaves, salad & chutney.

We then sampled a couple of cakes - Carrot (on left) &  Banana & Choc Chip!

Sime enjoyed a Suki Tea - their red berry was really good!

The coast around Cape Cornwall...

Quite a bleak place...

Further north is a place called Pendeen...


With beautiful rugged coastline...

Crashing waves...

And an unspoilt little beach...

Pendeen Lighthouse.

We sneaked into the grounds to take this...

It's a lovely drive from St Just to St Ives...
Crossing moorland with the remains of old tin mines...

The lane is quite narrow, so it was a surprise to see a tourist bus!

As we get closer to St Ives...
 You can see the golden sands of the long beach at Hayle!

We'll take you to St Ives another time, but for now...

Here's a taster of our newly painted living room...

Hopefully, it won't be too long before we have the big unveiling!

Hope you're all having a good week!

Kay & Sime xx

Your post brought back happy memories of holidays in Cornwall. We've walked the coastal path around Pendeen and Cape Cornwall and visited the lighthouse. One of our most memorable walks was from Cape Cornwall to Sennen - a fair trek but with spectacular views.

We've also ridden that open top tourist bus on many occasions, often with the wind whipping our hair and once in mist so thick we couldn't see further than the sides of the road. Summer in Cornwall, eh? I love it.

However this year we're delaying our visit until Christmas, when I'm looking forward to seeing St Ives in quite a different light.
Thanks for that Gai, it really is lovely down there... We love Cornwall in the Winter - though I think lots of folks are starting to realise just how good it is & there does seem to be an increase in holidaymakers around Christmas time.

I bet you'll have a great holiday!

I thought the post title was Caped Crusaders and I was looking forward to see the two of you dressed as Batman and Robin going on another adventure. Good thing I am going to the eye doctor next month.
Mel, if Sime had his way - we would be!

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 ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
