The South West Coast Path Circular Walk From Home

We're having such beautiful weather here at the moment, so we're making the most of it! Last week we decided to do one of our favourite local walks... Taking the lane past our hamlet... And the footpath down towards Caerhays... There had been a thick sea mist all morning, which started to lift. 1 mile from home... Tim Burton's film crew were starting to take over the beach. After feasting on fruit & handfuls of nuts on the beach, the mist cleared & we got on our way... We joined the coast path to head home... Looking back down on Porthluney Beach. A mysterious standing.stone.. Neither of us remember seeing it before! Taking in the view... These steps through the woodland are never-ending...  Out the other end... Down more steps... This little chap ran across the path - we do see lizards a lot in our garden too. We think the only way to get to Lambsowden Cove is by boat...

Nearby Film Set - A Walk From Our House

There's always lots of filming going on around here, but a few weeks ago we noticed a film crew base in a field near here, with security manning the gates even in the middle of the night (we were returning from one of Sime's late gigs). We were told that it's a Tim Burton film as he'd visited a local Indian restaurant & we were intrigued. After bumping into some neighbours in the week who told us to have a walk along the coast path, we decided to go along to investigate with Hugo today. The film is based on a children's book, set on a fictional Welsh island & is starring Samuel L Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp & Eva Green. Although there were only security guys around today. On the coast path. Looking down on the village. This whole set has been built on the village car park - Hard to believe that this isn't a real building... Nor this one... These too are part of the set... Sime tapped

Daymer Bay

We took the day off yesterday & were thrilled to have chosen the right day for a day out... We used to visit this area lots with the kids, as Daymer was our nearest beach when we lived in North Cornwall. We really needed to be out in the sun & get away from home for a bit...   So we had a thoroughly enjoyable day! Kay & Sime xx
