Tandem, Weather Vane and Decoupage

On our way back from town, we came upon two young neighbours trying out the family tandem for the first time and what an enjoyable time they were having.

Having fun

Walking around Newlyn before going to see Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman at the Newlyn Filmhouse, we spotted a lovely weathervane.

In the cafe upstairs, before the film, we were both taken by the decoupage on the tables.

The film, by the way, is stunning,  offering an unflinching, true-life examination of race relations in 1970s America that is just as frighteningly relevant in today’s tumultuous world.

Walking and Singing Together

Dylan Thomas once said of Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) that it was the prettiest village in England and it was here that we started our walk today with singers from two Cornish choirs, Levow an Bys and Dawn Chorus, in aid of Freedom from Torture.  Join us all on this chilly walk as we make our way through Mousehole into Newlyn and thence to Penzance stopping at various points along the way to sing. What a splendid afternoon. Thank you P for inviting us along.  Click on any photo for detail and the caption which will tell you what we sang at each point. Sorry I don’t have any recordings for you. Stopping to take photos was quite tricky in the midst of fifty walkers!

Newlyn Art Gallery, Heron and St Michael’s Mount

Other bloggers often ask, ‘What are you grateful for?’  Every day I am so grateful that we were able to come back to Cornwall, to enjoy the sea and the countryside. Today we went to Newlyn to the Art Gallery and for a walk along the front in bright Autumn sunshine. There was a bowl that I loved and a painting but almost the best thing was seeing the sky as we went up in the lift – magic!

As we walked along Mr S spotted a Heron in the sea.

From the path and the gardens we could see St Michael’s Mount in the distance.
