I love September sun and today, in bright but gentle sunshine, we walked along the beach from Porthtowan to Chapelporth and back and we hardly met anyone. Enjoy the gallery and click on any photo for more detail.

What a glorious day! Here are a few photos to give a flavour of the happiest ceremony ever!.
I’m to be the Celebrant at my first wedding in two years. We had the rehearsal on the beach today and afterwards, the lovely Mr S and I walked along the sand at a very low tide.It was sunny and quiet and wonderful! The visitors have almost all gone.
Sorry, can’t post tonight, too caught up in the game at Wimbledon!
P.S. 6th July
So sorry that Emma Raducanu had to withdraw with illness.I’m not usually a tennis fan but I find her inspirational and send her all the very best for her future
It was such a lovely morning we went to Chapelporth at 8.30 at low tide with the intention of walking along the beach to under the cliffs where Wheal Coates looks over the sea. However the low tide wasn’t low at all! We couldn’t go around the first rock and as soon as the tide turned, it raced inshore. There is a facebook page called Preposterous Parking in Cornwall which often shows cars caught by the tide!
Just the best day! We woke to sunshine, had a traditional birthday breakfast of croissants and after opening my presents and taking calls from our children, we went for a walk at Chapelporth. We took sandwiches with us and had hot chocolates from the cafe (its last day open as too many visitors from higher tier areas.) Just look at that sea!
We arrived home to find a card and some glorious camellia blossoms from old friends on the doorstep. They are a more vibrant pink than the photo shows and are flowering in many gardens around us already brightening up the winter.
This afternoon we walked to the allotment and had tea and cake with our lovely neighbour, her sister and another allotmenteer, coming home in a sprinkling of snow which settled briefly on our baby Christmas tree and finding Dear Friends who had called by to drop off my cards. We are so lucky to have so many lovely people in our lives.
Today, our eldest daughter has come to spend the day with us, the first time since lockdown – and what a day we’ve had. She arrived in her best car, an Audi A8,in glorious red to celebrate our day together.
M, like me, has a passion for making and story telling – it runs in the family. She has made some lovely 3D pieces for us and this evening has made a new button for our loo. It was lost some years ago and today, M has 3D printed us a new part. She brought her 3D printer down especially to do this job and it has been fascinating to watch the whole process.
Above is the prototype starting to be printed and the final piece is below.
A brilliant trade happened today! One of our choir friends runs the lovely cafe at Chapelporth, renowned for its Hedgehog ice creams, Croque Monsieur and homemade Flapjacks. She and her staff, who have just been allowed to re-open, were in need of some masks so several of her friends have made some. R came this morning to collect the three I have made and brought us some of her delicious Flapjacks.
We found a very small green and yellow spider on the Peony today, busy spinning a web.
