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!

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.  
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!

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...
