It is so good to come home! We have been in the big city for the last few days – so to come home to fresh air, peace and quiet and the beauty of Cornwall is quite something. We enjoyed our adventures but it is so good to come home. Please enjoy the gallery below giving you a taste of Godrevy and the sea.

I was in Hayle this morning and managed this time to find a parking spot to get the photo I’ve been trying to take for ever! There are half a dozen of these along the way.
I drove to Godrevy after my appointment in Hayle. It was a grey day but the beach still looked amazing.
What a lovely chirpy poem this is!
Spring (Again) – Michael Ryan
The birds were louder this morning,
raucous, oblivious, tweeting their teensy bird-brains out.
It scared me, until I remembered it’s Spring.
How do they know it? A stupid question.
Thank you, birdies. I had forgotten how promise feels.
Another gloriously bright and bitter Autumn day so a beach walk called.
The patterns in the sand always please me.
The rock formations are beautiful.
Our lovely friends who keep chickens keep us supplied with beautiful fresh eggs. These came with a feather!
Our walk today took us along the cliffs to Mutton Cove where seals hang out.
In the car park was a lovely old VW Beetle, much older than my fifteen year old beauty, and immaculately kept.
I’ve been sorting through my fabric stash for stuff that I can put into the sewing box for LiveWire 3. I think the felt will be the best for her, both bright and easy to sew.
As I am writing this post, an Edward Thomas poem has been read on the news with a comment that the thaw is now happening over most of the UK. About time for some further North, where there have even been airdrops of essential foodstuffs in Cumbria, to villages cut off for 5 days.
Thaw by Edward Thomas
Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed
And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flower of grass,
What we below could not see, Winter pass.
Delightful isn’t it, the thought that the rooks are observing the coming of Spring which we, as yet, can’t always see.
Here is another shot of Godrevy taken a couple of days ago when the last shreds of snow were still to thaw.
