Opened the curtains to a double decker boat 
Walked the dogs up the hill 
Ah that's better - Hamburg Star to the left and LPG tanker Navigator Star that had arrived overnight 
 Nice clear light this morning

Down the hill to home 
Up at Trebarvah to mow the lawns & clean the windows at Oamaru Barn  - the grass is now looking really dry - only the weeds are green
A day of sunshine and some huge clouds 
Camera is back from the repairers - light was better earlier
Afternoon walkies 
Wind had really got up now 
Easterly ! 
Think these are Curlews - but I could be wrong- lots of them around 
Wonder what they're planning down on the old Chicken run - thought they'd been told to stop the developing of leisure areas

White caps and splashes 
Yep ! more of them 
Huge dark cloud and suddenly it was rather chilly 
Amazing how the water changes - dead calm for days then... 

Got up this morning to find that the Wood Pigeon that had hit the window had become Mr & Mrs Crow's breakfast - Luckily Wooster and Tilly were not bothered by the dead body ! Sad to see it's mate waiting on the wall for it to return.

Rather a cool and grey day 
Waiting for the tide to drop off the causeway 
Hamburg Star back in the bay 
The White Dove has a friend 
Ascot 470 - RAF Airbus A400M Atlas - practise circuits at RNAS Culdrose
Could hear Whimbrels, but hadn't seen them until they all flew off 
Then I could see why 
Wooster popped up in the shot 
Weird - never saw a Seal shaped head, but assume that's what it was 
Nearly trod on this Oil Beetle 

A few spotlights of sun  this afternoon 

Wonderful clear view of Wolf Rock Lighthouse 
Bladder Campion are everywhere 
How on earth they manage to grow on this spoil heap I'll never know  
Nice point from Wooster 
Happy Bunnies behind the gate

 Not a bad morning, with a few more clouds around

Unusual looking container ship Atlantic Sea 
Scillonian III on a late start and sticking out of the quay - due to the low tide 
Many thanks to The National Trust Mount's Bay for strimming back their footpaths around Trenow

Not seen one of these for a long while - you can see that the fields have been seeded 
 Last photo of Jim for a few days as he's off up-country for a few days tomorrow - hope he remembers how to drive on a motorway !

Yet another happy singing Wren 
Tiny little Japanese Azalea - need to remove those Three Cornered Leeks 
These Watsonias are enjoying the weather 
Always check the label - thought he was buying a purple one and I didn't think to check either !
Super Clematis flower  
Always think these are rather too funereal for a garden but they were here when we came and they do well ! 
The Libertia Grandiflora are looking good 
Just had to try to get a shot of the Sail Training ship Lord Nelson passing the bay - used the alp Centre to focus !
