From Home to Hume (and back again)

Tuesday 24th November 2015

Hello

On Tuesday we took a walk around Hume accompanied by Ms RR –  just returned from Denver (the one in Colorado) and suffering from jetlag! Well, she will go skipping off all over the place!  Fresh air and exercise were called for; luckily the recent iciness had passed and it was a dry, if slightly gloomy, day. Continue reading

The Trelissick Man and The Men of the Trees

Sunday, 13th September 2015

Hello

Firstly – welcome to new readers!

Mr RR and I took a trip to Trelissick for a look at the gardens, and found the hydrangeas, which are not really my favourite plants, looking lovely, especially the amazing Hydrangea peniculata ‘Burgundy Lace’ which is blooming in the round border outside of the house.  If I was going to buy a hydrangea, this would definitely be the one!

Battle for the skies…

Friday, 15th May 2015 

Hello

We went back to Predannack today and walked along the cliffs to Kynance Cove, returning across Lower Predannack Downs.  Last month when we did this walk we were enveloped in thick fog.  Today, we enjoyed bright sunshine for most of the time and could see for miles out to sea and across the heathland.

A Curfew of Curlews!

Good Afternoon

Sometimes it’s good to repeat a walk – hopefully you’ll remember the route so you don’t have your nose stuck in a book or be scouring a map most of the time.  The weather will be different, flowers will have bloomed, birds flown in – it’s altogether more relaxing.

Today we went back to Flushing and walked along the river.  It was warm and sunny and delightfully peaceful. Continue reading

A quick ramble around Perranuthnoe

Wednesday, 6th May 2015 (Day 3, week 18)

Aiming for 1000 miles in a year (and getting a bit behind!!)

Total so far: 334.6 miles (7.5 miles this week)

Hello

This is a walk we did last Wednesday – I’ve been a bit slow in getting it written up! Fierce winds kept us from high cliffs, so for a quick walk we popped down to Perranuthnoe and scurried around our favourite route. For a short walk, we saw a surprising amount of birdlife.

Return to Gillan Harbour..

Sunday, 3rd May 2015 (Day 7, week 17)

Aiming to walk 1000 miles in a year

Total so far: 327.1 miles (10.8 this week)


Hello

It’s been a struggle to get out this week, a couple of days at work seems to have left me tired and lethargic.  I know that a walk would make me feel better but the weather has been uninspiring and it seems easier to stay at home and sew!

Having decided against a planned walk yesterday after waking up to a steady downpour, today we ventured out anyway in thick fog and heavy drizzle, and we’re glad we did.  The rain and fog faded away as we neared our starting point and the sun even managed to struggle through the clouds for part of the way.
