Dawn, Cornwall Diversity Festival and Supper

Dawn was gorgeous!  I love this time of year when we can see beautiful dawns without getting up too early!

Dawn this morning

We spent a very happy couple of hours at the Cornwall Diversity Food Festival, meeting lots of new people and trying lots of different and very delicious dishes.Cornwall Diversity Food Festival – 18.11.17, Truro

Afterwards we took A to Trelissick where the view just took her breath away, much to our delight.

Supper was a Yottam Ottolenghi recipe for Roasted Cauliflower Cheese and it was scrumptious.

Peace, Golden Rose and Champagne!

The low winter sunshine comes straight through our back windows and first thing in the morning the shadow of PEACE on the blind was the first thing I saw.

We noticed a lone golden rose blooming near the arch this morning.

As I write my very good friend, A, is on the train coming to visit. We have the champagne ready to celebrate being together for the first time in eight years!

Pasty, House Name and Sunset and A P.S.

I spotted this ‘pasty’ in the car park after singing this morning.

The driver was sitting in the van and was amused to see me taking a photo.

We went to Porthtowan for a cliff walk and supper at The Blue Bar tonight as I wanted to see the sunset. I loved one of the house names up the side of the path.

Haha

The waves were good and splashy against the rocks and the sunset was gorgeous. Click on a photo see the detail.

P.S. As I was writing this, a message came in on Facebook which made me very happy. Apparently it is World Teachers’ Day and one of my ex pupils has named me for the help I gave her. It is lovely to be remembered so.
