Creekside

On Tuesday we went off to explore the creeks between Truro & Falmouth.
Starting at Miss Peapods in Penryn, which is where Sal & Ryan live...

And they joined us for brekkie...

We all decided to have the veggie fry-up...

And this was the view from where we ate!

Then the two of us went off to Mylor...

With all it's posh yachts!

We had a walk along the beach...

Which was lovely & quiet...

Last time we visited here - we saw Roger Taylor from Queen.
He was walking around with a bottle of champagne...

Then we called at Restronguet - where we followed the river...

And came across some houseboats... 

It's been another dream of ours to live on a boat...

This one's recently travelled to France!

We were also hoping to visit one of Cornwall's famous pubs - The Pandora Inn... 

But it recently had a fire & looks to be taking a while to rebuild...

Such a shame...

The jetty is still intact - though there's no access.
It's lovely sitting at a table on there - look forward to it re-opening at Christmas!

A hot & hazy day...
We're having fantastic weather again!

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...
