Wild Waves, Peachy Clouds and Carn Brea

It’s still windy and we went to see the waves at Portreath. We were not disappointed!

Look carefully and you will just see Carn Brea Castle and the Bassett Monument. Photo taken from moving car

St Michael’s Mount, Rainbow and Tonight’s Murmuration

Our walk was from Marazion towards Penzance today with the aim of being back by Marazion Marsh to witness the murmuration at dusk this evening. The clouds were beautiful, a rainbow appeared in part and disappeared almost as quickly and then the Starlings started arriving in small murmurations building to thousands upon thousands. It is hard to capture the magic, the thrill for you but here is a short video to give you a flavour.

Day 5 of Golden Wedding Week

A sunshine forecast so a day at the beach was in order – at our family favourite, Chapel Porth. Dam building, Pooh sticks, Croque Monsieurs (fabulous!) from the Beach cafe, ice-creams all round  and a good time was had by all.  The Grandbaby twins were a hit in the supermarket on the way home! Today’s gallery follows.

Early Evening on Chapel Porth Beach

Sunny but windy and cool this evening so not many people on the beach. Those who were there were having fun – running away from waves, splashing in pools, building sand castles, watching seagulls and admiring the most amazing clouds. On the way home there was a splash of rainbow in the sky. Click on any photo for a better view.

3DM, A Present and St Ives

A little packet arrived when I was out yesterday and, somehow, by the time I had finished my meeting last night, it was overlooked. Today, what delight! I opened it up and there is the new cd by Three Daft Monkeys and we love it already!

We love the short train ride from Lelant Saltings to St Ives and that was our trip today. We love the art galleries and today, in the Porthminster Gallery, fell in love with a very special piece by Margaret Lovell. We left the gallery and then, at the same moment, turned to each other to say, “We could buy it together for our Golden Wedding present!” And so we did!  We have bought it through Own Art, a brilliant scheme where you pay off the cost over ten months with no interest. I’m not sure we can wait until August to unwrap it but as soon as we do I will show you our very beautiful piece of sculpture.

Enjoy our gallery of our afternoon in St Ives. Click on any photo for a better view.

Mothers’ Day, Treats and Love

Our lovely kids were all in touch today with cards, calls, chocolates and photographs and an extra rather special gift:   Refuge_parcels_-_mother_s_parcel. Do click on the link to see the important work being done for women less fortunate than those in my family.

It has been another beautiful day so we popped down to Chapel Porth before the crowds! Join our walk at low tide on an almost empty beach.

I send my love to all my lovely readers, be you Mothers or not. I hope you have all had a good day.
