Circo Kernow Students 2011



We've been blown away by Hugo & Co...

                                           
They've been studying circus performance skills for only 1 or 2 sessions over 10 weeks...
And we've picked out a selection of the best photos...
         
The group are mainly aged between 14 & 18...
And they also learned how to put up the big top & prepare for a show.


They each tried all the activities & discovered what they prefer to do...

We've known some of the kids for a while, so it was great to see what they have achieved...

Even those we didn't know still managed to amaze us...

The group have also learnt Makulele...

And Capoeira...

Which was fun to watch...



Hugo's chosen skill was mime...


                                          
We were surprised by his confidence & of course we had no idea what to expect...

                                        
But we have been very impressed!

With all of them...

Rowan is 14...

And these 2 were wonderful...

Jake is climbing down the rope...

Just stunning...

Amazing...

And brilliant!

Emma was also the girl on the silk rope...

                                           
The Hula Hoop girls wowed us all!

Then the finale...

And taking a bow...

You can see the group performing in the middle of Truro, where they appeared as statues to advertise their show. 

Enjoy!

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.
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?

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...
