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.  
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.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For 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...
