A Birthday, St Piran’s Parade and Chapel Porth

07 Mar

Daughter No 1 is with us for her birthday which is lovely. We have had a splendid day enjoying first the Redruth St Piran’s parade,

then a trip to Chapel Porth for a walk up to Wheal Coates and lunch at the Beach Cafe (their Croque Monsieurs are truly scrumptious!) The wind was so wild with gusts of 30-40mph that I abandoned the cliff top walk and left the other two to it! They did return! One of her siblings and family had rung to sing Happy Birthday just as they reached Wheal Coates.

They did come back over the hill

Then we  called in at Kresen Kernow to show M the wonderful new/old building

and have just finished our Birthday dinner of Confit Duck with Blackberry sauce followed by Chocolate Torte. Another sibling and family rang while we were cooking dinner. Happiness all round!
