Littlest Live-Wire and her Mum were the only ones in the toddler pool and had a lovely time.

Those of you who follow my blog will know that I went to a Cabaret Party last night. It was held in a fabulous independent bookshop in Falmouth called Bookmark and it is there that I took this selfie in the fish-eye mirror above the door. A Bookshop is just the best place for a party!

1 The family spent the morning at The Maritime Museum and we met them for lunch at The Gylly Cafe where it was, sadly, much too cold to go onto the beach.
2 Looking over the docks from Castle Drive was, as always, fascinating. We spotted the Dutch Brig, Mercedes with its tall masts in the distance. The photo of the ship in full sail is by David Barnicoat on 30th March.
3 Despite the bitter winds the Tete a Tete miniature daffodils just keep on flowering!
1 The Cornish daffodils I bought the other day have opened and look just beautiful in the sunshine.
2 I had a special request from KJ for a new scarf for J as the one I made before Christmas has gone missing. I used up the wool that I made his sister’s Cat Hat and Cowl from and knitted all last night and this afternoon and got it to the post just in time!
3 We went to the Maritime Museum for a fabulous talk this evening given by Roz Savage about her exploits rowing solo across the oceans. Falmouth Harbour was looking particularly beautiful in the just-dark of the evening.
P.S. I was challenged by Yvonne to use all the favourite words I was given the other day to write a post containing all the words. I can manage a paragraph!
Heffalump was very happy that he had finally reached the attic uttering, ” Fabbydabbydozy” as he entered the enormous well-lit space and started exploring. He was happily fishing around in the ubiquitous clutter, when he found himself suddenly defenestrated. Somewhat discombobulated and out of breath, he looked around to assess the sorry situation. Serendipity! He had landed, rather fragrantly, in the honeysuckle and shaken but unharmed, declared,”Alleluia! Now, how to achieve anabasis?”
1 After a super singing session, I met Mr S and P and we went to Falmouth, quite delightful in the sunshine.
2 Near Gylly Beach are these amazing flowers! I have never seen anything like them and don’t know what they are. Does anyone?
3 The Art Gallery in Falmouth is free and houses one of my favourite paintings –
The gallery hosts lots of workshops for children and families. The resulting paintings are professionally framed and hung which absolutely delights me – respect for all art whoever has created it.
A couple of bonus photos today of our beautiful Choir-babies:
1 We spent the morning in the Maritime Museum in Falmouth and Jake had a lovely time. (Click on any photo for an enlargement.)
2 We drove up to Lanhydrock to have a run around before KJ and the children went on their way. It had been raining hard and the mud was glorious! These were the last goodbyes! We’ve had some members of the family here for just over three weeks and now they’ve all gone. We’re babysitting in London in only 10 days so it’s not too long before we see this branch of the family again.
3 It amused me at the end of the day to see all the umbrellas drying in the Lanhydrock National Trust reception office.
1 The sun has shone on us today. We took the twenty minute ferry ride from Falmouth to St Mawes and the fourteen of us had lunch together on the terrace at The Rising Sun, looking out to the sea.
2 There were beautiful Agapanthus in abundance in St Mawes.
3 On the way home we had a family pilgrimage to Gwennap Churchyard to see the gravestone that inspired Dad to write his first novel, Jeremy Visick.
No photos today as one of the children fell asleep in the study as soon as we got home and is still there, expected to sleep all night! I’ll add them tomorrow.
