Portmellon

Tonight's sunset after a lovely hot day...

And this morning... With Sime's latest quirky addition...
No, not Rose's hat... His Euphonium plant pot!
It's been hanging on the wall in what we call "The Jam Room" (musical jam rather than the sweet stuff) for years & now it is above the woodburner!

Night, night.

WHO LIVES IN A HOUSE LIKE THIS.......?

Oh, I just had a funny thought-what about your house appearing on Through The Keyhole!

Sime has a habit of collecting musical instruments... The Euphonium was free as it doesn't work, but he just can't help himself. Using it as a plant pot was one of his better ideas!

We are a family of hat wearers, especially Rose & Sime... Rose left a collection of her hats behind when she left home last year & Sime seems to be making good use of them!

We were just thinking how unusual our house must look to folks... Hahaha! I don't think anyone would know what to make of our decoration - it's just a mish-mash of weirdness!

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 …

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...
