Shadows, Raindrops and Blue Sky

Going down the lane towards St Euny Church for our walk today, the low sun shadows were beautiful.

I love raindrops highlighted by the sun.


Although it was very cold and the wind bitter, there was a wonderfully blue sky and when caught in sunbeams, a lovely feeling of apricity.

Walk Around the Back

After another wild and very wet night, the sun shone by about midday and we went for a walk up along the Great Flat Lode trail that is right behind our house. It’s a good stomp for finding beautiful things!

Great Flat Lode, Porthtowan Beach and Dinner

This morning we walked around the back up to Wheal Uny (where the Heligan Giant used to live!), came home for lunch and a play and then went off to Porthtowan for a last family outing to the beach as half the family leave tomorrow after Birthday Breakfast.  Click on any photo in the gallery for more detail.

Dinner last night, a fabulous Chicken and Mushroom Lasagne, was cooked by M, our eldest daughter, tonight’s, Barbequed Chicken, is being cooked by our son-in-law, L and tomorrow’s is being cooked by D&A, a Senegalese dish for my birthday dinner. Aren’t they all just lovely?!

St Uny Engine House, The Heligan Giant and The Mud Maid

We have had the most beautiful day today! First we had a walk along the Flat Lode Trail to find a tin mine for Jake and this afternoon we went off to The Lost Gardens of Heligan to find the Giant and the Mud Maid.

I’m going to tell it through photos – enjoy! Click on the first one and then click the arrows on the right to get the whole story.

And now they’ve gone home and the house feels very quiet and empty!
