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

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. The food didn't disappoint (see photos). 


Good portions of quality nosh prepared with love and a flair for presentation. Rival cafes, take note: This is how it's done. 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 i…

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

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?
