Such treasures to be found on the almost empty beach today as you will see in the gallery. Click on any photo for detail and caption.
A sunshine forecast so a day at the beach was in order – at our family favourite, Chapel Porth. Dam building, Pooh sticks, Croque Monsieurs (fabulous!) from the Beach cafe, ice-creams all round and a good time was had by all. The Grandbaby twins were a hit in the supermarket on the way home! Today’s gallery follows.
Sunny but windy and cool this evening so not many people on the beach. Those who were there were having fun – running away from waves, splashing in pools, building sand castles, watching seagulls and admiring the most amazing clouds. On the way home there was a splash of rainbow in the sky. Click on any photo for a better view.
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.
His leap into the air, prior to entering the water, put this surfer atop the 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.
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!
