Trebarwith Strand

We had the pleasure of meeting a blog friend & her family yesterday...
We suggested we met up at Trebarwith Strand, a tiny seaside hamlet close to Tintagel.

It rained heavily the whole time & the stream flowing into the sea was in spate...

And more like white rapids!

We had found this place on t'internet & thought it sounded nice.
We spent 3 hours chatting non-stop & the food was ok, but I was disappointed that they say on their website that the bread is home made, but it didn't seem it to us...

Being the greedy guts of the group - Sime & I had cashew nut & celery soup to start, then we had nut burgers - which were quite tasty (but the cheap white rolls were awful)!
The cafe owner was a bit loud & abrupt, he also made a little joke about us staying for so long...
Anyway, we were so busy chatting that we forgot to photograph the food, but nevermind...

It could have been better, so we're not going to give them a plug!

So who did we meet?

J, KL & Scarlet...  

Scarlet was everything we imagined - lovely, friendly, warm & northern! 
(We miss hearing northern accents down here, so that was a real treat)

Although Scarlet's blog is more about living frugally & renovating her home on a budget - which looks great!
I feel we have connected because of our poor treatment from the NHS... We also discovered that we both decided to research our (different) conditions, become experts & have made or are beginning to make changes to our lives - for the better!

Scarlet & J share a real bond...
They are very warm & gentle with each other & their daughter, KL
(who, by the way - is gorgeous)!

We are very happy to have met them all (though 3 hours just wasn't enough) & hope we get to see them again soon.

We have more guests arriving this evening from The Netherlands, so the birthday boy is pottering about!

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Lucky you meeting Scarlet and family! Glad you had a wonderful time. Isn't it funny how it feels as though you have known blog friends for ever?

You've made me a little teary - in a good way. We had a fab time too and we hope to see you again next week- 3 hours just wasn't long enough!

Sorry! Enjoy your last night... Hope it's dry for the big pack up in the morning - think you'll love Mullion & at least you'll be dry!

See you next week.

K&S :)

How lovely to meet up with blog friends. I would love to have a big party where we could all get together and meet in person, wouldn't that be fun (and exhausting- imagine all the chatter!).

How fun to meet up with blog friends! It makes the world a little smaller of a place doesn't it? Wonderful!
Wishing you and your sweetie a lovely week Kay!

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...
