On the way home we followed a pasty van, another with a sense of humour.

It was on this day in 2004 that my lovely Dad died and he has been in my mind and my heart more than usual today. The following cutting was found by my Mum many, many years ago and clearly made her think of her Father, my Grandfather, The Rev W R Richards, whom I knew for only a couple of years when we lived in the Vicarage in Cockerham, Lancashire with him and my Granny.
If only – my lovely Dad was a very wise man.
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!
Walking through Penryn, after a haircut this afternoon, I photographed Christmas wreaths, a couple of delightful shop windows and a most touching memorial to the eighteen people killed by a bomb in The Square, Penryn in 1941 – Eighteen Trees for Eighteen Lives. What a beautiful way to commemorate these lost lives. Click on any photo for detail and the caption.
Today I bought some beautiful ribbons – gold and red and green for a Christmas project which I will show you in a week or two.
One of our neighbours has put a star up on the front of their house and it reminded me of a beautifully simple poem by Aldo Kraas that I like.
For me at
by Aldo Kraas who was born on July 15 1964 in Sao Paulo Brazil and started to write poetry in 1996.
Now and then the sun crept out through the mist which lay in the valleys on our way to Trelissick and covered the water completely as we started our stroll. Join us on this beautiful walk and imagine the peace. Click on any photo for the caption and an enlargement.
This post is for S, whose birthday is today and for V whose birthday is tomorrow because both of them love this place and are both too far away.
