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.  
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...
