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...

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.

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!

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…
