Another Lunch, Bouquet and Bias

I met the lovely Mr S for lunch again today. He is working on the boat on Freeman’s Wharf, getting her ready for launch later this month. We met at The Muddy Beach Cafe in Penryn and had a delightful lunch of an excellent Tomato and Roast Pepper Soup with Cheesy Toast and Onion Marmalade!

My lunch

There was a wedding in the cafe yesterday and the place was looking lovely, full of jugs of Spring blooms and bright yellow paper baubles hanging from the ceiling.

The blackboard in the porch always amuses me and today I managed to get a photo.

Playing, Drinking and Eating

Oh, these family days are fun! Today was spent very happily with Daughter No 3 and her LiveWire with all manner of imaginative games and dinner tonight was with my kid brother and SiL at a local hostelry where the food is excellent and the atmosphere friendly and welcoming.

Playing jump up and down the steps

Good wine

Pavlova to share!

Travelling to Visit the LiveWires

We love the long train journey to London. After the hoohah of getting ready, the moment we step on the train we begin our adventure which starts with three days in London with family……..  Click on any photo for the captions and a bigger view.

We left Cornwall in 10C and arrived  in London to 25C! Stepping off the air-conditioned train was like stepping off a plane in Greece!    Last night we had no WiFi hence the late post.

Bandstand, Lunch Out and Fascicularia Bicolour

We decided lunch out would be good today after a month spent mostly indoors. We set off for the Princess Pavilion restaurant in the Gyllyngdune Gardens and though the bandstand was beautiful, the menu didn’t tickle our taste buds so we went on down to The Gylly Cafe.

That was a very good decision as I had one of the best lunches ever! I had their Mixed Seafood Platter which consisted of Crab claws, Scallops, Tiger prawns and Brill with a deliciously dressed salad. It was one of those meals that you just don’t want to finish and it did take a long time to eat being messily scrumptious.

Coming away, the brilliant red and blue Fascicularia Biclour in Queen Mary Gardens are in flower. They are like something from another world.

Brunch, Paper Flowers and Post Box

We love having brunch in Caffe Concerto before we spend the day in The Royal Academy. Today I had Eggs Benedict – delicious!

This is the rose that was on our table.


In the Burlington Arcade there were hanging bouquets of beautiful paper flowers.


Along the street I noticed a very interesting plaque on a post box.


Given yesterday’s post – I smiled at a dozen strangers today and eleven smiled back. Three stopped for brief cheerful conversations. I was very happy with that!

Friends, Dessert and A Cornish Lane

1   What good advice this is and today we have taken it!

Spend your days with those who love you

2   We all had lunch in Porthleven and this was our dessert, Chocolate Brownie with Cherries and Pistachio Ice-cream. It was utterly delicious as was the rest of the meal.
