The sun shone bright and I was off! A day escaping the confines of the sewing room which, love it though I do, can be too much of a good thing when you spend an endless amount of hours in it as I do. My dear friend Looby Lou, sweet baby Ellenor and I got into the car and headed for the coast - Porthleven to be precise - where the cliffs were covered in bright yellow gorse, the breeze heavily scented with the delicious smell of coconut buns.
The sea glistened and sparkled with hues of jade and turquoise.
We strolled along the sands and I managed to get soaked as I took my eyes off
the waves for a moment!
Baby Nell sang and chatted in equal measures.
Porthleven's pretty harbour provides a safe (ish) haven when stormy seas thrash about.
A myriad boats lay waiting for high tide.
The beach we walked along is the other side of this church. This is one of several churches in Cornwall that lie either very close to or actually on the sands.
It seems odd today to think how very hot the sun was, no coats or jackets were needed and even the breeze was warm.
Bye for now x
