waiting for a sunny day

It seems like weeks since we had a sunny day and no wind. The rain has been interminable. But yesterday I was awoken abruptly by yet another scam Amazon Prime phone call, but delighted to see a blue sky at last. We decided that it was time to have a beach walk, so we headed…

Cornwall in Colours

I don’t often go to the beach during the summer, but my youngest son and family paid us a visit in early July and we met up at Godrevy for lunch and a wander on the beach. It was a beautiful day with barely a whisper of a cloud in sight. Later on in the…
