Tandem, Weather Vane and Decoupage

25 Aug

On our way back from town, we came upon two young neighbours trying out the family tandem for the first time and what an enjoyable time they were having.

Having fun

Walking around Newlyn before going to see Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman at the Newlyn Filmhouse, we spotted a lovely weathervane.

In the cafe upstairs, before the film, we were both taken by the decoupage on the tables.


The film, by the way, is stunning,  offering an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as frighteningly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.

    I agree- I’d say a bit ironic than comedic and upsetting knowing that it was real

      I’m in total agreement. The end scenes re Charlottesville were particularly shocking as the BBC didn’t show anything of the real violence and underplayed the shocking reality.

      I heard it spoken of as a comedy and there were some funny moments but gritty tension filled drama describes it better for me. 🙂
