Blue Skies...

We had some sunshine over the weekend...

Which we got a glimpse of between jobs...
Portmellon

Mevagissey





On Sunday we even managed a picnic at Pendower...

Which is on The Roseland...





The roundhouses at Veryan...

A favourite place... 
The owners are lovely people & they've missed Sime's silly comments in their visitor's book - as we haven't visited for 2 years... But he made up for it by writing lots!!!

There is a little trail around the pond...

We rather like this part of the trail... 

The teapot walk...


It was nice going back...

And even nicer to have some sun!

Hope you're all having a good week.
We've heard there's a heatwave on it's way, but we'll not hold our breath...

Seeing Scarlet & family again tomorrow - they are bravely getting the full Smith clan treatment...

Wonder if they know what they are letting themselves in for?

It all looks gorgeous, I love the round houses. Do they have crosses on the top to stop witches landing on the roofs? (I'm sure I read that somewhere).
The Smiths said…
Hahaha... Thank you!

Just wished it would stay a bit longer!

There are 5 of them altogether. They were built by Reverend Trist for his daughters & we've been told the reason for them being round, was so the devil couldn't hide in any corners! The crosses are probably for extra protection...

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.

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...
