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!

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.

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...
