Cornish Cream, Storm Drive and A Wish Tree

1    Our lovely neighbour went shopping after our visit last evening and left a very welcome present of Cornish Cream on our door knocker for D&A to take home to Barcelona.

2   As expected, huge storms hit Cornwall overnight and today causing a signal failure that meant no trains were leaving this morning so we drove D&A up to Exeter in the vilest weather – thunder, lightning, hailstones and driving rain – and then a beautiful double rainbow, hard to catch through the windows of a moving car!
