Altruism, Walk and Moth

01 Aug

Another month has gone by already! Here is the Happiness Calendar for August.

Our walk this morning along the coastal path at St Agnes Head was remarkably busy! Okay, it’s August in Cornwall! Our drive there was the hairiest it’s ever been down the little country lanes as we encountered caravans, trailers, a silver bullet caravan and RVs, none of them very willing to pull over and not one of them waving to say thanks for us backing up and tucking in. I’m thinking they aren’t all rude but maybe scared of the situation and concentrating hard. Out of season it is extremely rare that drivers don’t wave to each other after manoeuvring in the lanes.

The views through the mist towards St Ives were glorious, of course, and the buzzy red daytime moths, Cinnabars,  are quite charming.

    I guess even more people have holidays in hte country so Cornwall is THE destination. Surely it in September it will be calmer again. I am always a bit worried driving on those little lanes.

      The RNLI said there were 12,000 people on Perranporth Beach earlier this week! Only 4,000 live there! The lanes are tricky. There are a couple that I prefer B to drive! 🙂

    This sounds like the situation that made us nervous about driving in Cornwall! Next time, we’ll come out of season. On the other hand, the views make the driving worth the trouble.

    The roads are busy, one reason I stay at home in August. And yes, not many drivers are giving the wave.
