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.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Atop

His leap into the air, prior to entering the water, put this surfer atop the waves.

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 sea is always turquoise here.

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!
