Cake, Buoy and A Singing Trip

I made a vegan Chocolate, Date and Coffee cake for our shared supper on board for The Suitcases boat trip from Falmouth to Mylor to sing and then along the River past all the lovely creeks and inlets.    Our singing went down well with our audiences.  Click on any photo for the caption and a bigger view.

Water, Trees and A Feather

It has been a glorious day and we walked the Woodland Walk at Trelissick. Before we left I planted the blue tulips, at least 8″ deep as instructed. I’ll let you see them in the Spring but will not wish the days away until then. As my very wise Mum used to say, ” Live one day at a time and don’t ever wish a day done before its time.”  Click on any photo in the gallery for more detail and the caption.

Visit, Walk and Dessert

Our eldest daughter has been down for the day for her birthday which is tomorrow and happily this year it has coincided with Mother’s Day. We spent the afternoon on a lovely long walk out of Trelissick along the river through the woods and back up again.  Join us on our peaceful stroll. Please click on any photo for detail.

We had a delicious Birthday dinner of Chicken Adobo followed by Chocolate Torte.IMG_9374

A Day Out – St Anthony Head

We have had a beautiful day out, going across the King Harry Ferry to The Roseland and on to St Anthony Head where we had a short walk and basked in the sunshine. Click on any photo for detail and the caption.

What a lovely day out for  our 48th Wedding Anniversary which is next week when I may not be up to celebrating! Tonight we are going out for a special dinner too. Happy days!

Delicious Desserts, Pub Lunch and King Harry Ferry

Last night was our lovely friend, N’s, birthday party and what an array of delicious desserts were on offer. The curries, lasagne and salads were scrumptious too!

Our Best Beloveds are with us, my brother and SIL, from Atlanta USA and we are visiting lovely places and eating out more than usual. Today we went over the King Harry Ferry to meet them for lunch at a lovely old pub, The Roseland Inn in Philleigh.

Coming home through the lanes and driving down to the ferry, I thought you might like to come with us – especially for Shelagh and Calvin.

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.

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.

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

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!

Potager Garden, Cornflower and Three Choirs on a Ferry

1  We went to the beautiful Potager Garden, Constantine, to meet a friend, to play and to have lunch. We wandered all over the place exploring, noting landmarks so that we could find our way back and hunting dragons. It’s a magical place for children (and their adults!)

Lunch was absolutely delicious, as always. Lots of the food is grown right there in the gardens. All the food is cooked freshly on the premises and is a treat for the eyes as well as for the taste buds!

3  This evening I’ve been to sing with the Three Choirs on a Ferry. All three of Claire Ingleheart’s choirs, about 100 of us, sang first in the courtyard in Trelissick Gardens and then we all, including our audience of about 200, walked down the hill to the King Harry Ferry where the choirs went on board, the audience on the slip way and we sang for an hour and were much appreciated by the friendly crowd which included KJ and Lucy, which was really lovely for me. Just as we finished we were all delighted to hear the beautiful sound of a pair of owls hooting to each other.

Mevagissey Fisherman, Screen and Singing Again

1   These delightful little fishermen, less than 2″ tall, were brought home for me by my Dad when I was about seven years old, when he first discovered the beauty of Cornwall and the decision was made to move the family here a.s.a.p.

Mevagissey Fishermen

2  This is the screen in our utility room, used to hide the washing machine etc so that we can call it our sun-room! I’m beginning to decorate it with plant labels, bay leaves and stuff so it is becoming beautiful!

Live life, love food

3   Singing with Claire and the Inglehearts was lovely, of course. It’s good to have her back after her 7 week spell in London. Tonight our last song was “Keep You In Peace” sung especially for the three choir members who have died in the last two months. It was quite hard to sing as we all had loved ones in our minds as well as our choir friends  – but we did it and it was beautiful.
