A Gift, New Glass and Waves

To my delight a small parcel arrived this morning. I knew what was going to be inside as one of my Dear Readers had very kindly offered to send me some sea-glass and here it was! The colours are so delicate – whites, greens, some blues and a precious bit of red and another of turquoise. The darker colours are shades of green when held up to the light.

I set to straightaway to make a new piece of my stained glass project adding the sea glass as well as up-cycling some jewellery that I had found in a charity shop. It needs some refining but here it is. Huge thanks to Judith and her thoughtful generosity.

It’s a full moon tonight and high tide was about 5pm so we went to see the waves at Portreath, always at their best at full moon. They were magnificent!

Waves and Goodbyes

The last day with most of the family here and we went to see wild waves at Portreath, spent some time drawing, packed up the Birthday Crown and began to clear up a bit after the best four days ever with the family together for my birthday bash!  Click on any photo for more detail.

Sea Spray, Swimmers and Shelter

Another glorious afternoon, warm and very windy and the sea at Gyllyngvase was rougher than we have ever seen it with waves crashing against the sea wall and glinting in the sunshine.

There were lots of swimmers in the water and not all wearing wet-suits.

I love this shelter along Cliff Road in Falmouth. Click to see the detail of the anchor cut-outs on the shutters and the delightful weather vane.

Wild Waves, De-Stress and Comic Relief Baking

1   Portreath in wild winds today. My photos don’t do the force of the wind or the wildness of the waves proper justice so I’ve posted a couple of photos of the same place from a sunny day last July. They might show you the contrast and help you imagine the gusts that almost blew us over, the salt in our mouths and the spray with which we were doused!

2  I learned this today from a comment on Penny’s blog   “The quieting reflex: Take a deep breath in, and when you exhale, smile! This not only relieves stress, but if you are feeling negative yourself, it makes it disappear!” I tried it and it works.

3   I’m baking in good time to make funds for Comic Relief on 15th March. These Double Chocolate Mini Muffins with Red Noses are to sell to The Suitcases at singing tomorrow.

PS Is there someone out there who can tell me how I stamp my name onto a photo to mark it as mine?  I’ve been made aware today that Google just help themselves to any image we post on our blogs (See Teepee’s post here) and I would like my photos at least to be identified as mine!
