Chapel Porth – Surfer, Dog and Waves

Yet another glorious February day and we went off to Chapel Porth where the car park was very full. We watched a surfer limbering up, a dog playing with a ball in the waves and the waves, the waves!

I was so pleased to catch this one of the unknown surfer jumping out of the water as part of his warm-up exercises then off into the surf.

This little dog had a brilliant time chasing and fetching the ball. I love this photo, just one foot on the floor and the reflection so clear.

The waves are always mesmerising – the sound, the feel of the spray, the running up-beach to escape the encroaching tide  and the power.

Housel Bay Day 3, Colours of Kynance and Lichen

Our third day and we had a walk around Kynance Cove before heading for home. Kynance has always been a family favourite and today the colours were as lovely as ever even though the sunshine of the last few days had disappeared. We liked the lichen patterns too.  This is the view from our room this morning.

The Serpentine is very beautiful in this Cove.

These three days have been just wonderful – totally challenging and I ache all over the place – but just think – two years ago I couldn’t even have contemplated these Cornish coast path walks. Two new hips and two years on and I can do it! I can do some really challenging walks and survive!

Mount’s Bay, St Michael’s Mount and Twin Seats

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 distancedscn9260 dscn9265

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!

 

Spice Mixture, Chapel Porth and A Seed Head

We are having Christmas lunch on Sunday so I have been preparing the brining mixture for the turkey – gloriously coloured and scented fruit, spices and vegetables. Late afternoon took us to Chapelporth where the waves were huge and the tide racing in at a speed that I have never seen before. It was an utterly exhilarating walk along the beach with the roar of the breakers and then up the cliff walk to Wheal Coates. There was some gorse in flower but the best things were the seed heads lit by the fading sun.  Click on any photo for the caption and to see it in its full glory!

Peace, Tree Festival and A Wild Sea

What a delightful evening of words and music, a shared meal and friendship at The Mylor Mix last night with an emphasis on working for Peace in whatever way we can.

We were in Falmouth for a good friend’s birthday lunch today with wild winds and seas and discovered in the gardens of the Princess Pavilions, the trees all ready for the Christmas Tree festival later this evening.The labels tell you which community group made the decorations, all on the theme of Cinderella.
