Windy walk almost ended with us being blown off the ridge to Ram Head Chapel.
Sometimes you just have to watch it where you can.
The campers packed up just in time. A Force 9 (aka Strong Gale) hit overnight.
By the morning we had a foam filled bay and white caps still visible out to the horizon.
Decent grub in the Cross Keys Kingsand & Cawsand .
Sub in the murk.
Frigate, I think. HMS Monmouth possibly.
I think someone found a fishing net.
It was a *long* drag home.
Clive & Jane had a copy of Albert Waugh’s “ Sundials: Their Theory and Construction ”. A fascinating read. H spied a wonderful portable sundial which we promptly put through its paces on the front deck.
To-do: build a sundial for the garden.
The second-best bath view in the world. The first is obviously the pacific from La Push (although there’s no published pictures of that one ;-))
First job at the hut, scout the cliff path to the beach. Steep, slippy and in places ‘hairy’ too. Time to beach: boys 10 mins; adults 17.5 mins; Ewok 30 seconds.
“I see no ships”.
Except the dive boats above HMS Scylla .
A very proper walk. And good aerobic training going back up.
Bowling was a tad tricky on the stony wicket but we did discover an awesome fielder in the family. Ewok.
Another in the occasional series .
Breakfast (fried!) at Ducky’s, Chapple’s or Kenno’s cafes on Beer Beach
(I canna remember which captain).
No, it has absolutely nothing to do with ‘ bad hair day ’.
Last year May in the garden came early. This year lots of rain meant it’s arrived late.
Past May in the Gardens: 2011 , 2010 , 2009 , 2008 , 2007 , 2006 , 2005 .
…and for a while I *really* thought I’d found a solution.
More chicks . This time in a proper bird box. There’s new bird life everywhere this year: garage, holly tree, rosemary bush. bird house, bird box, loft, ivy, hedge…
Chelsea Green and Red Mini. no slap-backs.

Padstow. A special place for a special wedding between two special people.
You can even view c r o s s o a k with it.
We have new neighbours. Here’s one of them.
