Visiting, Colour and Free Food

I had a delightful visit with a lovely choir friend this morning, treated to Lemon Drizzle Cake and coffee and special cookies to bring home. Suddenly J said, “There’s a heron in the garden!” and there it was, just 6′ away at first. He was eyeing up the fish in the pond but took to flight when I stepped out to get more pictures.  Here are the photos I managed to get of this elegant creature. Apparently the Heron signifies patience, just waiting and going with the flow – seems about right for these strange times.

Walking home I passed a lovely  tree, covered in gloriously glowing Autumnal colours.

A bit further on, along the lane, were some delicious Blackberries and I remembered to take the photo this time before I ate them all!

St Just to St Mawes, Blackberry Dessert and Driftwood

1   Over the King Harry Ferry to St Just and then a five mile walk along the coastal path to St Mawes, again showing Cornwall off to P.

The King Harry Ferry

KHF timetable. Love the detail – This side : The other side!

There had been a recent wedding in St Just Church

Wedding flowers on the side of every pew.

Inside St Just Church which was filled with the perfume of all the beautiful flowers



2   The best dessert in the world has to be blackberries warmed by the sun and straight from the hedgerows.

Warm blackberries

And while I was picking blackberries I spotted this spider very busily spinning her web.

3   On the small stretch of beach that you can walk along on this walk we found lots of fantastical driftwood and this delightful resting place!

and a bonus photo – just because I love the colours in the foreground and hope you will too!
