Rewilding Our Life - Day 8

We worked all day yesterday, so we thought it would be nice to take Bebe for a stroll when we picked her up, but no, she refused & got quite angry when we tried to persuade her, so our 30 minutes of rewilding was spent in the garden.

Lupe's always there...




Fleaby joined us too.

Sime managed to zoom in on the moon.

Tired, but happy to be outside in the sunshine.

Our activity was to spend time outside at night, look at the night sky, think about everything that's out there & just how small we are - something we do a lot. When you have chaps like Sime & Hugo around there are always these kind of conversations going on...  

We ventured out around 10pm.

Of course, Lupe followed us out...

The sky was clear...

And the moon was beautiful!

These are the only photos that came unfortunately, but it was great sitting out there looking up. We can always see Orion's Belt & The Plough on a clear night, but we also saw a tiny red Mars.
The hamlet was very quiet (although the hostel & campsite are busy), so we were able to hear the sea & the local owl hooting.
A few weeks ago, we spent a weekend in a wooden lodge on The Lizard & it had a hot tub, we spent hours in there & really enjoyed sky watching... On the last night we saw satellites tracking across the sky & shooting stars too... Wonderful stuff!

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?

Top Of The World

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…
