Portreath, Still Life and Roast Chicken

12 Sep

Our walk today, 600 yards (!) took us alongside the harbour at Portreath. The boats were bobbing about even in the inner harbour and the swell of the water fine to watch as it raced along the harbour wall. This is a working harbour with lots of fishing boats.

The setting sunlight caught this lovely still life, ‘Striped Jug and Pears’ by Ben Jones, a Cornish artist, giving it an added dimension this evening.

Daughter No 1 leaves us tomorrow after a week of sharing the caring and taking over the cooking. Tonight’s dinner was a beautifully roasted chicken with lots of vegetables and a scrumptious gravy. It has been lovely to have her here for so long.

    I missed not having a daughter…the closeness of cooking, sewing, doing things together…how lovely!
