A Family, Monkeys, A Special Meal and A Recipe

13 Jun

On our walk today, we were overtaken by a young family that we know, all out on their bikes, the littles one being towed. They were off to do the whole Great Flat Lode. We walk just a small section. It isn’t flat, by the way. This section is quite a steep hill.

In between showers, we have managed to plant up the Monkey planter and it looks lovely against the newly painted wall, which is cream rather than white but looks white in the photo. A local artist, Jeremy Beswick, made this precious basket for me many years ago.

We are ‘going out’ for dinner again tonight, collecting a Confit Duck meal from The Royal Oak in Perranwell. Here is this week’s menu.

I have put the recipe for Strawberry Freezer Jam on my recipe pages today.  It’s very easy and totally scrumptious.

      It is delightful, through different landscapes – woodland, heathland, beside fields and along lanes and with views of the sea and of the wonderful engine houses that tell of Cornwall’s tin and copper mining history. 🙂
