First day of the Bank Holiday weekend dawns bright and shiny, so of to the beach we head...only to find a mist lurking on the horizon. It drifted in and out for much of the day, mostly making its ephemeral way up the river which runs through Falmouth from the coast, but not really affecting those of us playing on the beach as it hovered just far enough away. We spent the time skimming stones...
Watching the young gulls negotiate the breeze
Being chased by waves
We spent most of the day in glorious sun before the mist finally wound in across the shore making it a little chilly to stay.
We came home full of sea air and tired, but rested. A quick scan of the garden in the quiet of the early eve reveals the aquilegia are opening their purple bonnets, the colour picked up by the bluebells scattered along the hedge wall and suiting my calm mood.
Such pretty flowers aren't they?
As are the lilac gathered in this jug, possibly the last for this year as the huge abundance of flowers are just beginning to go over after filling the house and garden with that sensual perfume for almost a month now.
Lemony does her best impression of a stork
All is peaceful and I think I will light the campfire and quietly sit with a glass of wine , watching the flames as the day drifts away into dusk - my favourite of times - and let my mind also drift quietly over the day that has been.
Hoping for more of the same tomorrow...how about you?
Bye for now x
