Rewilding Our Life - Days 20 to 23

Sunday's weather was pretty awful here...
It rained on & off throughout the day, so we enjoyed a quiet time at home by the woodburner. It was also our last day of freedom for a while, so it was nice to just chill out.
The rain stopped by 8pm, so as Bebe wasn't here - we enjoyed a walk down towards the beach.

This is the view from the first stile, which is just 5 minutes from our door...

And this is from the second stile, just further down the lane.
We stood & watched the sea for a while...

And headed back up the lane when the rain started again.
We didn't see anyone else - which was nice!

Monday was the first time in 3 weeks that we were unable to do any rewilding, we had a serious problem at work which took time to sort & the aftermath continued throughout our evening, on top of this - Bebe returned home from respite, so it was chaotic!

We made up for it on Tuesday...
The sun came out in the afternoon & we were able to play on Hemmick Beach.


Sime made a rock sculpture...





And I made a fire pit.


A lovely time...

Yesterday, we visited Porthluney Beach - which is the next cove on from Hemmick.

Another lovely day, though a bit windy.
This beach took quite a bashing during the winter storms.

Though the sleepers are mostly still standing...



Behind the beach is Caerhays Castle, which you may be able to just about see...
The Castle has been used in a few TV productions, as it is a stunning location.

We had a tough day at work again yesterday, so it was lovely to just sit & watch the sea again for half an hour... Notice how Sime's face is getting hairy?

You are in a lovely part of Cornwall so close to the coast. The views are wonderful.

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 …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

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?
