What A Difference A Day Makes

We seem to have developed a rather nice addiction to walking the coast...

Yesterday turned into a 3 hour trek...

With lots of mud...

Looking back at our hamlet on the right.

First there was one...

Then there were many...

We were heading to the next cove along from ours...

And although it was a beautiful Saturday morning...

There was no one else around...

First glimpse of Vault Beach...

Just cows...

And sheep for company...

Lamledra House & Woodland is ahead...

We always take a bag with us to pick up rubbish, so we must be beach heroes too!

Vault is at the bottom of quite a steep path...

But is well worth the effort...

On arrival there was one woman on her way off the beach.
Can you spot her red hat?

We spent an hour there & had the whole beach to ourselves...

And it was really quite warm sitting in the sun...

A lovely clean beach - the sign must be working!

It felt like we were on a desert island...

Midday sun...

Such a lovely day.
Unlike today, which is wet & cold - time to get the fire in & watch a film...

Happy not so Sun-Day!

Wow what a stunner of a walk. My lab Harry would have been in seventh heaven down on that beech. I see you have many gorse bushes along the way, have you ever tried gorse wine I its quite good.

Thanks Captain Shagrat! We've made tea with the petals, but never made wine - although we do have a recipe & the equipment... That sounds like a good idea!

Thank you Kath, Mel & Catherine!

The weather's so miserable now - it's hard to believe that it was so nice on Saturday...

You know, I can't remember what the weather was like here on Saturday. It was all a bit of a blur, but we did think the countryside was nice as we drove to Mum and Dad's so I guess it was nice. I made soup and bread in the morning to feed my brother-in-law (and the rest of us) for lunch as he came down to visit his mum. Then hubby and I drove down to help my mum with her shopping because she's having trouble walking again.

Thank you for a lovely walk. I walked by the sea today aswell.
Love from Mum

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...
