Dodging The Rain


Spring is supposedly here, though not sure it has truly arrived in this area of Cornwall and it seems like everyone who lives outside of Portmellon is experiencing warmer, drier weather than we are.
 Our hibernating season has been a long one this winter, so even though it still has been quite chilly and wet - we thought it was about time we just got out there...

We met up with a friend for coffee on Sunday morning in Mevagissey and are happy to report that the newish cafe on the harbour, She Sells has very nice coffee and vegan smoothies.

It's been months since we walked round Meva, so afterwards we had a walk to the end...

Heading back up the hill...


Caerhays Castle beach - Porthluney - just before sunset...



Dusk on the Fal Estuary.
Canada Goose watching at Ruan Quay...


The Fal is quite high at the moment.



Swans further down the estuary...



We love taking what we call the back road from Truro, through the woodlands and out on to the marshland around the Fal. It is always peaceful and more often than not we have the place to ourselves. We were able to sit quietly and just listen to all the birds - Wonderful! :-)

Hope you are all enjoying some time outside.

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!

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?

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...
