Breakfast, Butterfly and Arrival

A delicious last breakfast in Lisbon, more street art on the way to the airport and Terminal Two at Heathrow looking rather smart.

Sightseeing in Lisbon

What a lot of walking and what a lot of lovely things to see. Join us on our stomp!

Pavement designs of city emblem.


A superb example of Manueline  architecture.


Discombobulating design that makes one feel that the earth is moving, reminiscent of the earthquake.

Children on a school trip.

Colourful market produce in Mercado de Ribeiro.

After the funicular ride.

Making the best of a hole in the wall!

Fatima’s hands.

A fabulous shop full of things I could buy! All I bought was a scarf but that might change if we return tomorrow…..

I love the detail in the cloth  of this young newspaper boy.



Lamps on three corners.

Pasteis de natal which we had at the end of the afternoon in a small cafe near our hotel.

Another Day in Porto

A bus ride, a long walk along the coast, a tram ride, a tasty lunch and to and fro on the ferry – a busy day again.


Speciality Portuguese dessert, Pao de Lo, very special indeed.

Street art on our way to Croft’s for Port tasting.

Exeter, Lunch and The Copse

A late decision to go shopping in Exeter proved to be a very good one. After a couple of hours, (and a new camera for me!) we met our eldest for lunch, a real treat as we haven’t seen her since the Golden Wedding events. Driving home, everyone in Cornwall recognises the Copse that says, “You are nearly home!” Do join me in the gallery to enjoy the beautiful things I spotted while on walkabout.

October Garden, Sheep and Lunch

Our garden is still full of colour. The Begonia given to us by J&M some months ago is thriving.Click on any photo to get the full glory.

There are sheep in the field behind us!

Lunch – simple,  beautiful – and delicious.

Delicious

A Wedding -The Cake, Singing and The View

The Suitcase Singers, with whom I sing every week in Penryn, were invited to sing at a wonderful Wedding today. Our singing was all a surprise for the Bride! It was a fabulous occasion and greatly appreciated which was lovely.

Their Wedding Cake was a wonder to behold – a cake made of cheese!

Cheese cake for the wedding

Waiting to sing for the Bride. Thanks to Anne for the photo.

The rain fell but it marred nothing. The view is still lovely even in Cornish rain.

Reflections, Lunch and Truro Treats

I started and ended the day singing with friends and what more could one ask for? Firstly we were in Penryn for our weekly rehearsal. The tide was in and the water very still with just an occasional breeze rippling the water.

The Penryn River this morning.

Because we had a gig in Truro this evening, the lovely Mr Smith and I headed straight to the city and had a lovely lunch followed by a happy and relaxed afternoon shopping.

Lunch in the cake at Uneeka

Half way down the stairs in Uneeka where we had a delicious lunch

Beautiful windows in Uneeka

This feather floated down in front of me and landed on the pavement at my feet.

Shoes I fell in love with today. They didn’t have my size. I may have to go back and order them……

The evening ended with us all singing two of Claire’s song for the Hall for Cornwall and then to the Ale House for a very successful Shout.
