Millet, Picnic and Sunset

The Millet plant is growing so quickly and changing every day.

We took our supper in the picnic basket to watch the sun go down at Godrevy. There were people jumping from the rocks.

The sunset was glorious.

Thatch, The Lighthouse and Ice-cream

We took our books down to Godrevy this afternoon, to read on the cliffs while  listening to the sea and in the warmth of the late afternoon sun. On the way is a lovely thatched cottage.

Ice-creams are very hard to resist – especially these.

So we didn’t!

Rainbow Colours, Edward Thomas and Leftover Snow

I’ve been sorting through my fabric stash for stuff that I can put into the sewing box for LiveWire 3. I think the felt will be the best for her, both bright and easy to sew.

As I am writing this post, an Edward Thomas poem has been read on the news with a comment that the thaw is now happening over most of the UK. About time for some further North, where there have even been airdrops of essential foodstuffs in Cumbria, to villages cut off for 5 days.

Thaw by Edward Thomas

Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
The speculating rooks at their nests cawed

And saw from elm-tops, delicate as flower of grass,
What we below could not see, Winter pass.

Delightful isn’t it, the thought that the rooks are observing the coming of Spring which we, as yet, can’t always see.

Here is another shot of Godrevy taken a couple of days ago when the last shreds of snow were still to thaw.

What a Difference a Day Makes!

After four freezing snow and wind-filled days, first there was rain to melt most of the snow and then glorious and truly warm sunshine so off we went for a walk along the coast at Godrevy. It was a gloriously peaceful walk given the past four rather fraught days.

Seal – look at his whiskers!

We met a beautiful dog who was having a wonderful time dashing about but who stopped and posed for us when asked by his owner!

St Ives and Tonight’s Show

To whet your appetite, one photo of St Ives. I am pretty tired after tonight’s show. I’ll add photos tomorrow.

Thrift, Blue Seas and Zig Zag Way

A friend told me that the Sea Thrift at Godrevy is very lovely this year so as we were in that direction for an appointment we called by and it was just stunningly beautiful! Join us in this gallery as we walk on the cliff tops there and at Hell’s Mouth ending up driving towards Portreath. This post is especially for my lovely friend, N, who is away from home just now.

Tonight we have been to St Euny Church which was the venue for Zig Zag Way, a play about Cornish miners in Mexico. It was brilliant!DSCN1587

The sky as we came out of the Church was just gorgeous.DSCN1596

Tulips, Eggs and Crashing Waves

The tulips that I was given over a week ago are fading but still lovely.

We had scrambled eggs for breakfast this morning as I blew the eggs for my Easter treat for the Grandchildren, two of whom arrive tomorrow evening. Here I am filling the shells with chocolate the way my Dad did for us. I will let you know how they are received on Saturday morning.

It was full tide at Godrevy and the waves were crashing magnificently, almost obscuring the lighthouse at one point.
