Carn Brea, Puppy and A Rainbow

28 Mar

For our last walk this morning we went up to Carn Brea, a favourite of the children as the boulders are such fun to  clamber over. It always intrigues me how the castle, once a Chapel built in 1379,  was constructed using the huge boulders as part of the supporting wall.

A very lively and lovely puppy caught their attention for a while.


It has been a day of sunshine and showers and then this beautiful double rainbow caught quickly from the kitchen window.

    Rainbow …. last time I saw a rainbow we had two and I didn’t have the camera handy. About 3 months ago. Rainbow gives me a good feeling of endlessness.

      Oh, I am! I treasure every moment and know how lucky we are – to have been born in a safe place, to have had a kind and loving up-bringing, to have met the right man, to have had his support through some very tricky times that we have come through together, to love and be loved – yes, I am grateful……
      All the best to you and yours 🙂

      Yes, aren’t we lucky? 🙂 By the way, I made your delicious recipe while the children were here. J told me that he doesn’t like meat balls so I asked about home-made sausages and he wasn’t sure about them. He told me though that he loves burgers so I just re-shaped your Longanista mix into burgers and he loved them!! His Mum now has the recipe to make at home. Thanks again. 🙂

        Wow, you’re welcome! My son loves the burger style too. I am glad to know they like it.

    It must have been windy up there…We had it windy in London. And up on Carn Brae I remember it always terribly windy, but great!

      It was! I was concerned that J would be blown off the boulder at one point! 🙂 By the way, I am working on a project about the ‘residents’ of St Euny Churchyard and wonder if you have any stories you could share? I know you were married there……. All the best to you, Sally 🙂

        Sally, I don’t have any stories but I always loved the romantic church and churchyard, with lovely backdrop of the country side. My youngest son was also christened there. it must be rather interesting do do a project and finding out about people and families.

          It is fascinating. Our event will be in May 2017 and there are lots of stories to be found and written up before then! 🙂

    What an amazing castle and a gorgeous reainbow! I hope those boulders never move. 😕

      They have been there since time began! The building has been on top of them since 1379 so I think they are solid enough. I hope so too! 🙂
