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. 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.
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?
