Day 158 – Summer, What Summer..?

Fair to say we did not expect to light a fire at home during June! It’s been pretty cool the last few days and seriously wet, so sitting in front of the fire this afternoon with coffee and hot chocolate seemed a great idea…

Day 132 – Defying Gravity…

Tonight’s outing was to the Minack Theatre near Land’s End. An amazing venue, carved out of the side of a cliff and hosting everything from music concerts to Shakespeare, it was conceived and largely built by Rowena Cade and her gardener from 1930 onwards. The performance tonight was by ‘Gravity’ – a rock/indie band based locally. Even though the day had been warm, it was far from warm when the sun went down! A magical experience nevertheless…

Day 71 – What A Difference…

… a day makes. Yesterday was chilly, but with blue skies and bright sunshine, very much a spring day. Today however is even colder, the sky is dull grey, and it’s raining pretty hard just now. Those hardy souls venturing out are all carrying umbrellas. Feels more like November than March!

Day 36 – Tennis anyone…?

The hardy folks around here play tennis outdoors all year round. With three all weather courts, they even play through the winter, just as long as the playing surface isn’t too icy. This morning it was just 3.5°C, but the ladies were out there practicing as usual…

Day 28 – Don’t Be Fooled…

After the really miserable weather yesterday, today has been beautiful and sunny (but cold), culminating in this colourful sunset… However, the forecast is not promising – sleet and snow are expected over the next two days, and with travel disruption expected, my plans for the rest of the week look to be in jeopardy.
