Penryn, Preparations and First Night

Singing this morning with The Suitcases overlooking The Penryn River was, as always, beautiful.

First night went brilliantly. Here are some photos from the preparation but then it was all on, singing our songs four times as each group of visitors, 30 mins apart, went on this glorious story walk around St Euny Graveyard. Click on any photo for more detail.

Calm, Cushion and Ballet Rambert

I love the Penryn River in all its moods and love that I sing every week with the river in view.

We can all adjust our sails!

We have been to see Ballet Rambert tonight – three wonderful dances but Ghost Dances is the best ever. We first saw the dance sometime in the 1980s and loved it then. It is a most powerful piece that didn’t disappoint tonight. If you ever get the chance to see it, please do.

From the programme.

Stillness, Water Cooler and Magnolia Gardens

The Penryn River was so still this morning – utterly beautiful.

After singing we all stopped in at The Muddy Beach cafe. This is the water cooler.

On my way home, I stopped off at Burncoose Nursery to have a walk around their beautiful grounds. It was stunning! Every corner turned revealed another breath taking sight. Please join me on my walk.Click on any photo for the caption and detail.

Sailor’s Barometer, Parking and A Maori Proverb

Last night we could see that a storm was on its way as the water in the Sailor’s Barometer was rising. We heard the winds in the night and there has been a hoolie blowing all day. This afternoon, the water in the Barometer had risen to the top and overflowed and we have Met Office weather warnings out for storms on Friday and Saturday so who knows what it will show tomorrow!

The tide was full in as I went to park on Exchequer Quay for singing this morning and the only space left was right at the front facing the river. I took this photo from inside my little VW Beetle. It felt almost too close for comfort!

A Blogger friend posted this Maori proverb today. I find it a little more light in the darkness. Thanks Lou Ann and KSBETH.

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”  ~  Maori proverb

Let us all turn to face the sun, together and in strength.

 

Front Doors, Shop Windows and A Memorial

Walking through Penryn, after a haircut this afternoon, I photographed Christmas wreaths, a couple of delightful shop windows and a most touching memorial to the eighteen people killed by a bomb in The Square, Penryn in 1941 – Eighteen Trees for Eighteen Lives. What a beautiful way to commemorate these lost lives. Click on any photo for detail and the caption.

Angel, Reflection and Sunshine

Just outside the window in the Zed Shed on Jubilee Wharf where we sing on Thursdays was this delightful and rather mad angel.

Along the way, off Freeman’s Wharf, I saw this watery reflection.

It has been a rather grey day and I thought sunshine would be good for us all.be-someones-sunshine

Penryn River, Crows and Sunset at Mounts Bay

Here is a gallery of a beautiful day. Click on any photo for the caption and detail.

After six weeks of trying to get our sickly iMac made better and six weeks of posting via the iPad, we have invested in a new computer for Christmas and birthday presents…….  Now I can post again properly! Hooray.
