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!

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 …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
