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...

Cornish herringbone wall.

A last look back before going into the cold dark shade...

A view of the next bay, our beach...

We walked down to Hemmick just as the sun was setting...

And the temperature dropped...

We'd been walking for over 4 hours & now had to climb the steep road home...

But first, we had get through the gushing river over the lane.
With our last ounce of energy, we decided to climb the wall & run through it!
We then continued the journey home, staggering & groaning uphill...

We made it, but haven't half suffered today - our legs, hips & backs are definitely feeling their age...

And just for Kath... The woolly hats are gone - for now anyway!

Night, night.

Oh, this is just my kind of special day out.

A Cornish coastal walk, just bliss!

Love the primrose too!

Thanks for posting the amazing photos. These are keeping me going until I can get back to Cornwall - hopefully this summer!

What a terrific walk you two had. You used to clean that huge house? In 3 hours? Oh my goodness girl, it makes me tired just thinking about it!
xo Catherine

hee hee!

I do love your walks and your photos. It's so beautiful in your home county, aren't we lucky not to live in the town?
I can just see you 2 running through that little stream, going "WEEEEEEE!"

Thanks Catherine, we loved it, but we were never satisfied as we could get everything done...

Thanks too Kath - don't know where that last spurt of energy came from!

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?
