Gladioli, Beach Walk and An Engine House

22 Sep

1   Last night, the friends who came to dinner brought us some beautiful Gladioli in purple, white and green as they know what these colours mean to me. Thank you P&A!

2  It’s officially the first day of Autumn today and in temperatures of 22C, we walked from Porthtowan along the beach at low tide  to Chapelporth.   Surfers surfed, children played, dogs paddled, girls rode by on their horses and people, like us, walked the length of the beach in the Autumn sunshine. I love the sound of the waves breaking on the beach. It’s a sound I grew up with and  I relish every moment I can be by the sea and listen to the soughing of the waves onto the beach………

3    Seeing Towanroath Shaft Pumping Engine House at Wheal Coates from the beach shows just how much on the edge of the cliff the mine was. I posted two photos of the engine house from the top of the cliffs here if you missed them. One is mine of sunset at the engine house and the other, by Tim Martindale, is of the Milky Way behind the engine house and is just awesome!

We are getting very excited about our New England in the Fall holiday!

    Love the horse on the beach. I used to love riding along beaches. The smell of the salt and the horse and the breeze oh MY.
