Serendipity, Opportunity and King Edward Mine

29 Apr

1. An absolute downpour today, all night, all day but – serendipity indeed – a friend asked us for something from the shed so Mr S went out and caught the mini-flood in our yard just before it came through the air brick into the house. Beautiful timing!
2. Yesterday when we moved the Clematis a few pieces had to be cut to remove it from the trellis but that wasn’t a disaster but an opportunity to have some beautiful flowers indoors.

3. Through pouring rain, along roads running with rivers, through patches of floods, we arrived at King Edward’s Mine in Troon for their Open Day. With Pip conducting, The Inglehearts sang, first accompanying the delightful children from Troon Primary School and then accompanied by the rain drumming on the corrugated roof . We had a lovely sing and all felt better for it!

    Ah…the sound of rain on a corrugated roof…one of my favorite sounds in all this world…

      Thank you for liking my post
      It was a rather splendid accompaniment to our singing – and then we sang “You are my Sunshine” which brought smiles to lots of faces! 🙂

    Sounds a good day Sally! We went to car boot, then an auction and ended up at Polly Joke when it nearly stopped raining! Had lovely scamper along the beach, climbed rocks to find caves then had a drink at the Albion on the way home. A lovely day indeed.

      That sounds like a brilliant day. Polly Joke was one of our favourite beaches as a family many years ago. I love the picture of you scampering along the beach and climbing to find caves. Glad the Scillies trip was a good one too xx

    We were surprised by how many turned up in the rain but we don’t cancel many things for the rain in Cornwall – if we did not much would happen! 🙂

    True dedication my friend 🙂
    Singing does warm one up after a run in the rain 😉
