We’ve been a bit busy recently but after several days of dreary, rainy weather, a little bit of blue sky encouraged us to venture out today. Mr RR suggested walking backwards around The Lizard! On noticing my incredibly dubious expression and hearing my cry of dismay…..after all I’m not very good at staying upright walking forwards, heaven knows what the outcome would be if I walked backwards…..he hastens to clarify. Instead of starting from Lizard Point and walking towards Church Cove as we usually do, we should go the other way and walk from Church Cove back towards The Lizard. Continue reading →
We’ve been to Trebah…..lots of other people were there too, it being August and all that. We had a walk down to the beach, a cup of tea, and then a walk back up to the cafe for lunch and then another walk before sitting down and enjoying the views for a while.
Yesterday we went back to Predannack and across walked to Kynance Cove which has become a favourite circular walk for us. After torrential rain all day on Thursday, it was pretty wet! But despite grey clouds it didn’t rain on us during the walk. Continue reading →
After a sluggish start I suddenly found some get up and go and announced a local ramble to Loe Pool. Mr RR remembered being told about a path to some woods on the far side of the pool where, at dusk, badgers can be seen. Despite it being 9.30 in the morning we decided to hunt out said woods, so that if we felt so inclined we could go back and spot badgers at nightfall one day! Continue reading →
We took a trip to Mousehole today, to see an exhibition at the Little Picture Gallery which is host to the British Association of Naive Artists. Mr RR has a couple of pictures there so we went along and saw them in place and met Judy Joel, who is the Director and Secretary and generally overseas everything. The exhibition runs until the 15th August so you still have time to get yourself there and have wee look. Then it moves off to Maker Heights in Torpoint from 21st August to 4th September (www.britishnaives.co.uk/exhibitions.html). Continue reading →
I’m a wee bit weary after this one. This was one long ramble. It was warm as well. And we had to fight our way through overgrown paths swiping at nettles and brambles with big sticks. Well…..to be honest, Mr RR swiped and swung with a big stick, I just wandered along behind clutching a twig and sighing dramatically.
