Bufo Bufo, Fair Swaps and A Walk

Our walk each morning around part of the Great Flat Lode sees us dodging stray brambles (I take my pruners most days) rampant Bracken encroaching onto the paths and various brown items. This one turned out to be most benign, a Common Toad whose scientific name is the delightful Bufo Bufo.

We visited some very dear friends this afternoon and took a big bouquet of flowers from our garden. At the end of a lovely afternoon, we left with much produce from their garden.

Early Morning, A Walk and Pondlife

We have so enjoyed our night away and this silver sea was our view this morning as we drew the curtains.

The walk through the gardens is beautiful and at the bottom of the gardens is the beach. We turned right along the South West coastal path and had an excellent stomp with beautiful views.

We spent the afternoon sitting by the hotel pond reading and trying to take photos of the dragonflies. I just managed by using sport mode on my camera.
