1 From our bedroom this morning, we could see that the sea on the North coast was very rough, white horses all along the horizon so we went down to Chapelporth to feel the wildness of the ocean and the wind, the roar of the waves crashing onto the rock and tried to take photos while being buffeted by the very fierce gusts.
2 On the way home I saw a beautiful creature running across a drive. I identified it when we arrived home and it was a stoat. No chance of a photo but I found this one on a BBC site.
3 I posted some Sally-Boots to a young friend who had her baby girl four weeks early a few days ago. Happily, she’s doing well. As I was packing them up, I realised where the colour scheme had come from – the orchids that were part of Mr S’s birthday present.
