This Morning

After what seems like weeks of wind & rain...
I woke this morning to birdsong & sunshine!

So I threw open the window to take this...

Then quickly got dressed & dashed outside...

I hadn't realised how noisy the wind had been until it became peaceful again.
Being outside early just made me feel like taking a walk...

Sime has been feeling a bit grotty over the last couple of days, so I left him in the land of nod...

And took off to the beach... 

It's been a while since I've been further than this...

But I really wanted to go all the way today...


This water comes off the hillside & joins the sea.
The beach is on the right...

It's like a river at the moment...

Our lovely beach...

The water is so noisy you can barely hear what I'm wittering on about!

The walk back up the winding lane...

Nearly home & the sun started to come over the hill...

A beautiful start to the day...

So glad I did it & am feeling rejuvenated!

Thanks Guys - just reminded me even more why I am totally in love with Cornwall - the peace and quiet - I was there with you. A brief sojourn after a stressful few days at work. Its just the sort of thing I do go rambling early on when I am down there or just sitting watching the dawn come up.

One day - you may have company.

Take care

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…

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.
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?
