Cat, Phone Box and Chips

On today’s walk, I was just taking a photo of a flower when this very lovely furry cat joined us and posed beautifully..

Later round the walk, we came around the Village Library in Carn Brea Village.

Regular readers may have spotted my delight when I harvested our Sweet Potatoes, all wriggly and not very many – but….. They make splendid Sweet Potato Chips!

Just one of our allotment sweet potatoes made all these chips.

 

Colours Along our Walk

So many colours in small pops along the Flat Lode Trail this afternoon, all delightful to see.

Cottage, Cygnets and Meeting the Artist

We met our friends for breakfast at The Heron on the side of the Malpas River and had a delicious breakfast with delightful company. Across the water is this lovely white cottage with its own stone steps down to the beach.

Walking away, we spotted two swan families on the water with six cygnets between them.

Afterwards we went into Truro to the museum to collect the print of Tony Foster’s Lockdown diary 1 which I fell in love with when we first saw it a couple of weeks ago. I showed you Lockdown Diary 2 in a post that day. You can see it here. You’ll be able to see the print when it has been framed.
I was excited about collecting the print and even more so when the staff said that Tony Foster was in the gallery and that I should go and meet him. What a lovely, friendly man! He was so easy to chat to, about his paintings, about the Grand Canyon, about the danger our beautiful and fragile planet is in, about lockdown and his delightful record of those strange days.  He was gracious enough to let me get a photo for this blog. He is standing by Lockdown Diary 1, a copy of which will be on our wall before too long.

At the back of the catalogue are the following words.

Ice-Cream, Seed Pod and A Caterpillar

We were really delighted to find that Sallie’s Ice-creams were still selling at Godrevy this afternoon. After a brisk and chilly walk in the wind, we treated ourselves. It’s never too cold for ice-cream.

The seed pods against the seascape were asking to be caught on the camera.

A furry caterpillar shared our walk, possibly a White Ermine Moth caterpillar.

Walk, Fungi and Spookiness

We managed a walk today just before the heavens opened so we avoided a drenching. We found a number of fungi, a caterpillar, various small flowers including a violet (for my cousin) and the spookiest sound coming out of Hind’s Shaft at Wheal Uny.

Autumn Colour, Pumpkins and Leaves

The trees in the car park are losing their leaves, those that are left are all shades of Autumn colour..

The greengrocers had various beautiful pumpkins and squash on sale.

The trees in town have lost their leaves, lying in little pops of colour on the grey stone.

Singing, The River and Yachts

There are moments when we are singing in the Zed Shed in Penryn and looking out over the river, that life just feels so very good! I love  the mass of masts and all the wriggly reflections.
