Join us on our day out – to St Ives on the train, one of the best rides ever along the Cornish coast, in St Ives, to Mounts Bay and thence to Chysauster Ancient Village, home for a break and on up to Carn Brea and home for a relaxed and happy dinner with delicious fresh Runner Beans from the garden.

Still sorting! Today I found some stamps dated from 1980, one of which brought a wry smile – the one on the right with the words, “America’s Light Fueled by Truth and Reason.”
We went to Marazion Bay again today to find a few stones for our fountain. It was cold, wet and windy and the wind-surfers were have an exhilarating time.
We’ve harvested a few Broad Beans for supper tonight.
We went early to the car boot sale this morning in the hope of finding baby walkers for our Grandbaby twins who will be visiting very soon. (Imagine the growing excitement!) We didn’t find walkers but we did find two activity mats which look like fun though now that M is rolling he may not stay on his very long!
After the very busy car boot sale, we went on to Marazion – cool but always beautiful.
Here in Britain, if one makes a coffee cake, it will have coffee in it (like the very delicious Coffee and Pecan Cake) but we learned when visiting America, that there, a coffee cake is one that goes well with a cup of coffee! Today I felt like baking and found numerous recipes – the one I finally made is an amalgam and it tastes as good as it looks! I’ll post the recipe this week.
Such a lovely bright day today so off we went to Mount’s Bay where the wind was blowing a hoolie and it was very cold but it was also very beautiful! There were others walking on the beach, a windsurfer having fun on the water and a freight ship in the distance
The Mount was looking particularly lovely in the sunshine.
The local supermarket is all geared up for the visit in August of our Grandbaby twins!
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!
We went to Marazion to see the murmuration at sunset tonight but no starlings came by. That was disappointing but the shot I got of Penzance lights reflected in the water in Mount’s Bay pleased me greatly.
The clouds on the horizon were prettily peachy.
The lights were being switched on in the Castle on the Mount.
