Polperro

Sime was playing at the Polperro Festival last night & at the last minute I decided to go along, as I haven't visited Polperro for years...

While the guys were setting up - I had a mooch about...























When I got back to the stage - the crowd were waiting eagerly for the band to kick in...




It was a great gig & all the festival goers didn't want them to stop!

I loved these two characters at the back of the stage...

Now off to the Mevagissey Feast Week & another gig for the band.

On our way home last night...

Bye for now.

What a beautiful place. Never been but it's going on the list. NOW!

The gig looks great fun. Always good to leave the audience wanting more!

I'm LOVING that house decorated with shells!

We've walked to Polperro from Looe on a couple of occasions. It's a lovely route with the reward of a delightful fishing village at the end.

Those photos have made me just a little bit excited about our very soon trip to Cornwall! Glad the gig went well.

Hi Kath, It's a holiday cottage & is a snip at £175 per night!

Hi Gai, We haven't done that walk, but it is quite a walk from the car park at the top... They used to have a horse & carriage to take folks down into the village, but now we think they use little electric buses to transport people up & down.

Hi Scarlet, There's so much to see & do - but the weather is still being weird... Just after I got to the stage on Saturday, it absolutely poured down for the rest of the night. Yesterday was beautiful again & today is cold & miserable!

Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi Kay and Sime

Polperro long time since I have been there but I have fond memories of when the step children were younger. Did you go in search of the Pisky? Glad you had a good couple of gigs and loved the art work. If I was closer I would come down and support you. I started collecting Enchantica in Polperro (wizard figurines dragons and the like) used to get expensive going on holiday.

If you would like to take part, please pop along to my blog at http://tarragonnthyme.blogspot.co.uk/ there is an award for you to collect, if you want to join in please do (not sure what to do please ask) equally if you decide not to take part I will understand.

Hope you have recovered from Polperro etc.

Take care and catch up soon

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.

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
