Dawn, French Apple Tarts and A Wild Sea

02 Nov

1   I was up early this morning and caught the touch a of a dawn sky.

2  Cooking up a storm for tonight and having some sweet pastry leftover, I made some delicious little French Apple Tarts.

3   We went off to the sea this afternoon in a howling gale (but I needed the sea!) and found the car park as busy as a summer afternoon. Everyone had come to see the full tide in a wild on shore wind. The waves were HUGE and I feared for the little dog hunting rabbits on the edge of the cliff – he was okay!

    I can almost smell those apple tarts from here and that salty Cornish sea air… I miss it!

    Pure joy, Sally. And oh I do love the ocean. I’m missing it – in Perth Daniel & me were regulars at the beach. Just to see a photo like this and oh, I can almost smell it.

    Wonderful seas – so enjoyable when the storm is bounded by the coast, and not doing any damage!!!

    The sea at your back door almost…how neat is that!… looks a little dangerous but, oh… so beautiful and powerful…
    the French Apple Tarts look so yummy… the crust especially!

    The colours of the dawn sky are beautiful.

    Is that apricot jam in the tarts? Reminds me that it is almost time to start mince pies…
    Love the wild seas, more, more – although I am sure RNLI is not hoping for more!

      It’s thick apple puree in the bottom with a couple of apple slices on top glazed with lemon marmalade – delicious! 🙂
