Hayle, Penzance, Tremenheere and Marazion

A quick visit to Hayle today and a look in the market in the Old Foundry Chapel (the wool shop has gone!), coffee in a small shop with a lovely glass ornament display, on to Penzance to show A as many of its treasures as we could fit in and thence to Tremenheere Sculpture Park to see the Restless Temple and for the first time today, we were delighted to have a fierce wind. Do click on the link/https://restlesstemple.co.uk/. My video of the Temple being restless was too wobbly as I was being blown about!  You can see below the fabulous view of St Michel’s Mount (for you, Liz) through another sculpture.  From there we went to Marazion in the hope of seeing the Murmuration again. We were not disappointed but again my video isn’t worth showing so please click on this link to see the murmuration we experienced a couple of weeks ago. The whole thing is spine-tingling to watch. The ooohs and aaahs tonight from the spectators were like those one hears at a fireworks show.

St Ives, Tremenheere Gardens and St Euny

What a delightful day out this as been with our friend whom we have not seen for about 30 years! It is so lovely how the years just drop away as if they have not been! Please enjoy our gallery of our trip to St Ives and then our visit to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Please click on any photo for detail and the caption.

I came home to find that Anna Oliver of Fresca Marketing in Redruth had sent me the programme that she is designing for Until the Day Break and it is fabulous! I can’t show you yet but I will show you as the show starts on 18th May.

2    We had a family outing to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens this afternoon and the children loved exploring the jungly garden. The adults loved the sculptures and we all enjoyed delicious cakes at the end of our hot, hard walk.

3    It’s World Humanitarian Day and SG, a good friend, has said her word for today is Ubuntu.  Archbishop Desmond Tutu explained ubuntu like this –  he says that you cannot exist as a human being in isolation, as we are all interconnected:
“We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity.”   Or, as SG says, “I am because you are.” Thank you for this, S.

Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Gulval, Cornwall

What a magical garden we have discovered today. Just come with us through the jungle and feel the peace and pleasure we had walking through this haven. We spent three hours wandering around this amazingly beautiful  garden and being delighted by something new around every corner be it the beautiful and exotic planting or the astonishing sculptures by internationally renowned artists.
