Rewilding Our Life - Day 19

It's the first time in years that we've had 2 days off over a holiday weekend & we really hadn't given much thought on just how many folks there would be out & about... 
Our original plan was to go to Cardinham Woods, but on arriving to a full car park & a heaving picnic area - we turned round & carried on.

Eventually, we found Deerpark Forest near Looe...
There wasn't anyone else around - amazing, considering the amount of folks we'd seen elsewhere.

We couldn't believe that we managed to eat our picnic without folks walking by...
Thousands of people are holidaying in Cornwall this weekend & not one of them or any locals came along to disturb us, it was bliss.

We took the 3 mile trail.

We had periods of chatting & spent time in silence - enjoying the sounds & the warmth of the sun.


We climbed high above the trees...

And saw piles of chopped down trees.

Such a beautiful day...

We were in the forest for over 3 hours & by the end of our walk we had only seen 2 other people, 1 dog & 1 robin... We heard lots of birds, but didn't see any deer.

We took a detour home, as it was a lovely evening...
Colliford Lake - where we enjoyed skinny-dipping on our 25th wedding anniversary!!!

Roughtor & Brown Willy... 
We'll take you with us to these highest points in Cornwall one day soon.

The sun setting over Bodmin Moor...

Such a happy, fabulous day!

Such lovely pictures. I went with my family to Looe. Big Mistake, too many people, beach completely full. Walked round for a while then headed home. Looe so much better in the Winter. Will try Deerpark next time.

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...
