Small Copper, Tin and Copper Mine and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

1   Mr S spotted a beautiful little butterfly on the trellis early this morning.  It’s a Small Copper.

2   We loved doing the first of our walks from Sue Jackson’s  book “Discover Cornwall”  this morning! So good to have the author on the end of the phone when we got ‘lost’ – entirely our fault! The view from the top is amazing, all the way across Cornwall from one coast to the other!    Photos from the walk follow –

3   Friends lent us the dvd of ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed it this evening – a delightful mix of laughter and tears.
