The sun came back!
Finally, the sun arrived back in Cornwall, albeit on and off for some of the time. So what have we been up to this weekend? First up was a trip into Falmouth for some sewing bits and bobs to complete an order. This is the view fromt he other end of town to the one I showed before and is called Custom's House Quay. The headland opposite is covered with a blaze of bright yellow gorse at times and the smell if you should walk there is at such times is one of pure coconut buns. From here it is but a short walk to the beach and so we took the children down for a play in the bright, breezy waves for an hour or two and met up with friends for a chat. Oops, forgot to check the skyline and now it looks a little like a Batman shot!
We also popped up to our allotment where the peas were looking wonderful alongside spinach, runner beans twining around their canes and oh, so much all busily growing away. I sowed some more parsnips - bit late, but we'll see - and more carrots. So exciting to see it all and mouth watering when I think of the lovely meals we shall be having.
Sunday consisted of another trip to the beach in the morning followed by a gorgeous afternoon tea of Davey's scones, jam and Cornish clotted cream with Dave's sister, her children and his Mum. Lucy and I picked a trugfull of flowers to put all over the house, including this lovely Ballerina rose which looks particularly pretty with the lime green alchemilla
The weekend rounded off with yet another trip to the beach - so peaceful as the late afternoon sunlight warmed us as we watched the oystercatchers wheel and dive, their gentle song drifting on the breeze.
