The Seaside, Ice-cream and Gladioli

08 Sep

I have been to see the sea today! The sea at Chapel Porth was the quietest we have ever seen it. Usually it is full of surfers, today there were lots of swimmers enjoying the unusually flat sea. It was fabulous to get my lungs full of sea air.

It was just as pleasing to have a special ice-cream, a Foxy, which is Cornish ice-cream, topped with Cornish cream and then rolled in Flapjack crumbs! Can you imagine anything more delicious? Thank you, Rose.

The other day my lovely friend, A, brought some Gladioli that she hoped would open to be purple and white with green foliage. They are now open and very beautiful.

    The ocean can cure almost anything for me, if that doesn’t work there is always ice cream.

    That’s a new topping I have to try with the Grandkids … Except for ocean bathing there is nothing more healing than sea air …

    That cone of ice cream really looks tempting. And I love your photo on the Gladioli.
