Webs, A Planter and Marrows

We were greeted by a thick fog this morning and it hardly lifted all day. The result was beautiful droplets on plants and webs in the early morning.

I went singing at the Porthtowan Eco Park this morning. The session is called ‘Sing for your heart, sing for your soul’, led by Claire Ingleheart, and it is as uplifting as it sounds. I love looking round the site after singing and found this delightful planter made from an old tyre.

The crop of marrows was very impressive!

What a crop!

We met with friends in the afternoon at The Blue Bar in Porthtowan and spent a delightful couple of hours catching up, not having seen each other since our South Africa holiday in May.  The sea was barely discernible through the fog so no photos of the sea today.

Road Trip Day 9 – Ouray and The Montrose Museum

Wednesday12th September 2018

Today we drove to Montrose for a two night stay so that we can explore The Great Sand Dunes and then The Black Canyon of the Gunnison, more about them tomorrow. It was a short drive to Montrose so we had some time to explore the delightful little town of Ouray before we left.

I love these Family Rules found in the dining room at Black Bear Manor

After an uneventful drive to Montrose, we spent a cool couple of hours in the eclectic little Historical Museum in Montrose, an absolute delight.
For those of you who have followed for a while, you may remember all the work I did for Until the Day Break in 2016, when I researched Mary Angove Gill who travelled to America on her own to join her fiancé who had left Cornwall to work in Colorado silver mines. They were married in Arapahoe and their son Foster was born in 1897.  It was so touching to be in mining country where Mary and her family lived, to see old photos and artefacts that brought her life even closer. If you put Until the Day Break into the search on this page, you will get all the links to our fabulous production or you could click this link to get just one.
