St Anthony Head

We live at the top of The Roseland - a forked peninsula jutting out into the sea.
It has lots of little creeks, where folks with lots of money live...


This is Place House in Place...

Next to Place House...

From Place you can take a foot passenger ferry to St Mawes...
Which one day we must do! 

Instead we parked up on St Anthony Head, ate our picnic & enjoyed a fantastic walk...

St Anthony's lighthouse was at the start of our walk...

Views from the South West Coast Path...

The sea looked gorgeous...

With unspoilt beaches... 

And exciting little bridges...

Looking back at the lighthouse...

It's hard to believe how hot it got - when it's so wet & miserable today...




St Mawes Castle over the other side...

We eventually went into a lovely, cool woodland...

Past the bee hives...

And into a church...

A church which no longer has a congregation...

Back into the heat...

Through the overgrown churchyard...

And a medieval tomb... 

We were doing a circular walk & the lane back up to the top was very exposed...

There were lots of these tubs in fields, but we have no idea what they were for...
Does anyone know?



Nearly back to the beginning...

At the car park there is a cafe & as we had ran out of water a while back, we were ready for a drink...
And of course, something to eat.
We looked at the menu, saw there was nothing really suitable - but asked if we could just have a bread roll each with some salad. They said no... They had run out of salad!
We won't be going back - that's for sure...

This little chap enjoyed eating off other tables...

And we got very burnt!

A brilliant day & now only a week until we get to have a few days off!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It all looks so wonderful and that sea is so BLUE!

I was thinking about the tubs. When we lived near a big estate, they had grain in containers like that for the game birds to peck at. Once they got released from the rearing pens, they would still get supplementary feed.

That was a disappointment about the pub food. I must say I am having a lot of trouble finding something suitable when eating out. I shall be going to a barn dance with fish and chip supper next weekend, I will be taking my own picnic LOL
Looks a beautiful walk. As a lover of lighthouses I enjoyed seing this too!

Nettles

Our garden yesterday. Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower. ~ Edward Thomas ~ Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem! Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine... Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food. Nettles are ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

Taking The Plunge

Life is set to change again for us. We have had a great time entertaining many B&B guests, but now have decided to stop & concentrate on the things that are far more important. Firstly, ourselves... Sharing our home with many strangers is quite exhausting & Sime in particular has worn himself out giving his all, something neither of us had really noticed until we stopped. Secondly, Bebe (Sime's mum) is going to be moving in with us... Her dementia is progressing, though the conditions she was continuing to live in were obviously not helping. We feel she has been let down by the social care support team, her carers seemed to be excellent on the surface, but in reality - she has been badly neglected. On our last visit, we found her flat in a terrible state. The cleaner had disappeared, her hairdresser had stopped going in & some of the carers didn't even bother to feed her! On top of all this, she has been phoning the police about her hot water &am
