Snail, Lighthouse and Furriness

A very windy walk this afternoon but still, of course, beauty to be found.

We have just arrived home from a fabulous gig – Ralph McTell at the Hall for Cornwall, memories of the old days at a folk club when we were very young and just as good as ever!

Tulips, Eggs and Crashing Waves

The tulips that I was given over a week ago are fading but still lovely.

We had scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning as I blew the eggs for my Easter treat for the Grandchildren, two of whom arrive tomorrow evening. Here I am filling the shells with chocolate the way my Dad did for us. I will let you know how they are received on Saturday morning.

It was full tide at Godrevy and the waves were crashing magnificently, almost obscuring the lighthouse at one point.

Felted Godrevy

My beautiful and very talented friend, N, made this delightful felted picture of one of our favourite places, Godrevy.

It is where I would rather be today whereas I am nearby in St Michael’s Hospital having my hip replacement done. In four days I should be home and becoming increasingly mobile!

Christmas Day, Godrevy and A Goose (and ISS Again, with Photo!)

Just us this Christmas for the first time since we were married!  After Birthday Breakfast – not mine but in honour of Daughter No 2 – we went off to Godrevy.  For lunch we had Smoked Salmon and Prawn Stack, one of my recipes. We thought we really should do it ourselves as 1,788 people have looked at the recipe in December and it comes at the top of a Google search! It was delicious, of course!  Now the goose is just out and resting so there won’t be another chance to post tonight – So, Happy Days to you all, my lovely readers.

Pied Wagtail, Seals and A Robin

All today’s beautiful things come from our walk around Godrevy this morning, at first in bright sunshine and then in grey clould, hence the difference in the colour of the water!  Join us on our walk and click on any photo for more detail. It was the first time we had seen seals frolicking in the waters before the island is reached. The usual crowd were on their beach on the far side.

Allotment Produce, Sunset and Seagulls

1   Our lovely neighbour has brought round some of her beautiful produce from their allotment. We swapped it all for some Strawberry Freezer Jam! There’s Rhubarb for Different-every-time Pudding, Beetroot for Chocolate Beetroot Cake, an enormous courgette for delicious Courgette Soup and two small courgettes for Lemony Courgettes tonight along with the Curly Kale for supper. Thank you!

Garden, Truro Museum and Godrevy Beach

The garden delights me every day.

J loves all things Egyptian so we took him and T to the Royal Cornwall Museum to their fabulous exhibition of early cultures. Many years ago it was the same mummy, now in an updated exhibition, that gave me my love of all things Egyptian. He spent a happy time investigating the mummy, putting the organs into the canopic jars and re-wrapping the mummy (all models for those of my readers of a sensitive disposition!)
