Mince Pies, Sunbeam and Wheal Coates Walk

26 Dec

1   I taught my Senegalese daughter-in-law how to make mince pies this morning. They turned out beautifully!

2     Just as we were baking, a low winter sunbeam caught this painting by Sasha Harding. Serendipity!

3    We had sunshine  most of today before the expected return of the storms so we all had a walk up to Wheal Coates.  Many, many people had the same idea and A was delighted that everyone we met said Hello or Merry Christmas and one lovely walker offered to take a photo of us all. What special kindness to recognise our desire without a word being spoken!
