Mevagissey Harbour

Monday's weather was really dull, but we fancied getting out in the fresh air.
Last week, we saw a grey seal just outside the harbour, but the photos & video didn't come out very well.
We thought we may see him again, but he was nowhere to be seen...














We love this time of year - when we get places to ourselves...

Yesterday, we had a full day out in the sunshine...
On Perranporth Beach...

And ended the day at Truro's City Of Lights...
Lantern Parade & switch on of the Christmas lights.

More to follow soon...


Bye for now,

Oh I know 2 dogs who would have loved that beach!

Some of your photos are like picture postcards.

Is that a ponytail I spy on Sime? Never noticed it before if it is.

The days do look grey - but wonderful photos. And a lighthouse too BLISS!
Love Leanne

Beautiful pictures and how lucky you are to live there. One day I'd love to visit, maybe I'll see you there. Maa

A full day in the sun sounds perfect! We finally got sun here & enjoyed it a lot today.

You live in such a lovely area. How exciting that you saw a seal! I would have been bursting!

Hello - we're being rubbish at keeping up...

Jane - yes, it's great outside of holiday season!

Kath - that beach is 3 miles long, your doggies would love it!

Leanne - Sime's had his ponytail for about 15 years. His hair used to be down to his bum, but then he shaved it all off!

Sue - Cornwall is beautiful, especially out of season!

Catherine - That doorway is in a cafe in Truro, we thought it was a bit like our dining room... But tidier!

Molly - It was incredible to see the seal, we had no idea there would any near to where we live...

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...
