Mothers’ Day, Treats and Love

Our lovely kids were all in touch today with cards, calls, chocolates and photographs and an extra rather special gift:   Refuge_parcels_-_mother_s_parcel. Do click on the link to see the important work being done for women less fortunate than those in my family.

It has been another beautiful day so we popped down to Chapel Porth before the crowds! Join our walk at low tide on an almost empty beach.

I send my love to all my lovely readers, be you Mothers or not. I hope you have all had a good day.

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.

Spice Mixture, Chapel Porth and A Seed Head

We are having Christmas lunch on Sunday so I have been preparing the brining mixture for the turkey – gloriously coloured and scented fruit, spices and vegetables. Late afternoon took us to Chapelporth where the waves were huge and the tide racing in at a speed that I have never seen before. It was an utterly exhilarating walk along the beach with the roar of the breakers and then up the cliff walk to Wheal Coates. There was some gorse in flower but the best things were the seed heads lit by the fading sun.  Click on any photo for the caption and to see it in its full glory!

Walk on the Beach

What a glorious Autumn afternoon, just the time for a gentle walk on the beach at low tide having had to miss singing this morning.




The very old engine house, Wheal Coates with a vapour trail behind.


This pool seems golden with the reflection of the cliffs in the water.


What a delightful find.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Local

We are very lucky in having this beach as our local – Chapel Porth on Cornwall’s North Coast. It takes us about twelve minutes to get there and today it was just perfect for a long walk at low tide. We both feel at home here. It’s just the best place to straighten out any kinks!  For others in this week’s challenge see this link https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/local/

Back Home, The Garden and The Sea

Somewhat spaced from the 22 hours travelling and and 8 hour time difference, we have enjoyed a quiet day, checking out the garden, catching up over tea with our lovely neighbour and an evening stroll to one of our favourite haunts. Click on any photo for captions and enlargements and if you missed any of our amazing road trip in Arizona to The Grand Canyon and Sedona, please feel free to look around!
