A lovely time was had by all playing in the waves and the sand in Portreath.
The Chilli went down a storm this evening when all thirteen of us were together and so did the Summer pudding.
There will be thirteen for dinner tomorrow so we are having to break out the Family Silver! It is from my Mum and Dad’s wedding present canteen (1939) and was a bit tarnished. The three LiveWires took on the polishing to make it all shiny and smart.
LiveWire No 3 didn’t want to go to the beach this afternoon being tired from yesterday’s journey so she read her science magazine and discovered a fun sounding experiment, making bouncy balls. It was a sticky process and here are her lovely little hands.
She coloured one mix pink and the other blue.
I’ve spent this very wet day cooking up a storm! I’ve made a vat of Chilli for the family gathering of thirteen whom we are feeding tomorrow, an enormous Summer pudding for the same and two Blackberry and Apple Crumbles with blackberries collected this afternoon by LiveWire No 4 and her Mum who were the first of the family to arrive.
The show was amazing! Yskynna, the aerial dance company and the singers combined to tell the story of a Cornish Bal maiden and the audience loved it. Click on any photo in the gallery for a closer look.
At the weekend, Extinction Rebellion put 200 flags on boats in Falmouth harbour to draw attention to the climate emergency and I hoped our boat was one of them. We went to have a look this evening and we have a flag!
