Rewilding Our Life - Day 5

Today our challenge was to dip our feet into a naturally occurring body of water...
As we live on the coast, we chose a beach... Little did we know yesterday - that we'd be doing this again today!
Unfortunately, the weather is a lot murkier...
 It has remained foggy throughout the day - such a contrast from our time on Hemmick Beach!

Bebe was with us today - she now does 5 days (Mon - Fri) at daycare & is with us at weekends. We do try our best to get her interested in being out in the fresh air, but she just detests it most of the time... We told her that we wanted to walk along Carne Beach & gave her the choice to either come with us or stay in the car (where she could watch us), but amazingly, she chose the beach!

Bebe was already regretting joining us...

Carne beach opens out at low tide, when it is then possible to walk along the shoreline to Pendower beach.

The sea is absolutely freezing!

Only Sime managed to stay still!

Once we got used to the temperature - we actually enjoyed it & were reluctant to stop!

Brrrr, looks like your weather was the same as ours today.
It's still good to get outdoors, though I think I would have kept my wellies on. Brave people :)

what a magical place you live in. Strangely enough I was dipping my feet in the white spring today.

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?
