Walking In Wales


We decided to walk to a community cafe which was just up the road taking the scenic route... 

Across some marshland...

And over the river...

But first we played 'Pooh Sticks'! 

Llyn Dinas

Hugo found a rope swing...

And Sime found an abandoned glove & frying pan...

We joined the road for the last bit of the walk...

Past the strange little bunk houses...

And we arrived at the cafe...
Which was closed!!!

So we set off around the other side of the lake...
Little did we know how long it would take & we were hungry too!

It certainly was beautiful...
(But we went over 8 of those stiles)!

But hunger was causing us to flag...

Nearly at the end...

Looking back...

The last hour felt like we were getting nowhere...

But we finally reached the end...

Just before it got too dark...

4 hours longer than we'd expected...


But we still had time for smiles...
Just about!!!

Catherine - It's a bit odd, perhaps they left in in rush!

Kath - Thank you!

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 …

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?

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…
