Weekly Photo Challenge – Extra

I was taking a photo of the boats in the Penryn River, Cornwall and saw the woman in her wellies. It wasn’t until later that I noticed the dog almost swimming out of the picture – a much valued ‘extra’.

Washing, Walking and Murdoch Day

1   It pleases me greatly to see baby clothes on the washing line and these are very beautiful baby clothes!

2   We walked through the park to town today for Murdoch Day, the day when Redruth celebrates one of its famous sons, William Murdoch. Grandbaby B loved marching off feeling independent but safely held on the reins on her backpack.

Off I go!

3   William Murdoch invented gas lighting and used it first in his own house here in Redruth.  Murdock also made important improvements in the steam engine. He was the first to devise an oscillating engine, of which he made a model about 1784.  You can read more about him here. Our little town was buzzing on this beautiful sunny day as the parade went by, stalls were doing great business and the music was keeping everyone entertained. Two of the musicians have stopped here to take a look.
