Houseboats, Clock Tower and A Grove

1    Today the wind was still and the water on the river was like a mirror reflecting the houseboats beautifully.

2    This delightful Clock Tower in Grampound dates back to 1894.  We see it every time we drive through and today I managed to get a photo.  I love the blue sky behind with the threatening dark cloud hovering nearby. That cloud threw hailstones on us a little later on!

3     I met my couple for  the run-through for their Humanist Wedding Ceremony on Saturday. The Grove where the ceremony will take place is so beautiful and lined with fallen petals looking quite magical. The whole grove is surrounded by moss and fern covered rocks with glorious rhododendron and azalea plants overhanging the whole. There is a trickle fountain coming through the rocks and it will be the most romantic of settings for a wedding.
