Chapel Porth – Surfer, Dog and Waves

Yet another glorious February day and we went off to Chapel Porth where the car park was very full. We watched a surfer limbering up, a dog playing with a ball in the waves and the waves, the waves!

I was so pleased to catch this one of the unknown surfer jumping out of the water as part of his warm-up exercises then off into the surf.

This little dog had a brilliant time chasing and fetching the ball. I love this photo, just one foot on the floor and the reflection so clear.

The waves are always mesmerising – the sound, the feel of the spray, the running up-beach to escape the encroaching tide  and the power.

Housel Bay Day 3, Colours of Kynance and Lichen

Our third day and we had a walk around Kynance Cove before heading for home. Kynance has always been a family favourite and today the colours were as lovely as ever even though the sunshine of the last few days had disappeared. We liked the lichen patterns too.  This is the view from our room this morning.

The sea is always turquoise here.

The Serpentine is very beautiful in this Cove.

These three days have been just wonderful – totally challenging and I ache all over the place – but just think – two years ago I couldn’t even have contemplated these Cornish coast path walks. Two new hips and two years on and I can do it! I can do some really challenging walks and survive!

Housel Bay Holiday

We are having three nights away on a 3 for 2 deal for the lovely Mr S’s birthday. We are only 40 minutes from home in a hotel overlooking the sea and with the coastal path moments away. Today we did a circular walk of a couple of hours on the path around The Lizard. Our room is lovely, we have watched boats go by, seen the sunset and the lighthouse light become brighter and now it’s time for dinner!



I think this house along the path may well feel the spray!

The view from our room!The Lizard Lighthouse from our room. Let’s hope for another glorious day tomorrow.

Daffodils, Symbiosis and Celandine

I went on another search around St Euny graveyard today. Daffodils are beginning to bloom.

I love the oak tree at the start of the lane. Just look at the ferns and the moss growing on the leafless branches and today we have a beautiful blue sky with scudding fluffy clouds.

Celandines are so pretty with the bronze outside and the golden yellow inside.

The 2nd Cornwall Ukulele Festival was nearby today and I went over to see some of my friends performing.It was enormous fun, everyone having such a good time but photos of people singing are often not the best so here I show a guitar under construction, being made by Martin Douglas.

As I left Heartlands the sun was creating sparkles on the lake.

Bus, Edgeworthia Chrysantha and Cornish Hedges

In Chacewater today we were behind another of our new Tinner buses with charming slogans on the back. Here’s another if you missed it. I’m trying to get them all.

We discovered a new plant in the Pengelly Garden Centre at Hewas Water  today, lots of long stems each with a flower at the end. Isn’t it pretty? We didn’t get one but we did buy a dozen Snowdrops in the green to add to our collection.

We had lunch outside at The Duchy Nursery on their terrace with a long view over to Restormel Castle and some delightful wiggly hedges that amused me. I zoomed in to show you the detail.
