Monday - a visit from ex-hurricane Ophelia

A few hours after the wind arrived - a few photos through the window - before it gets blasted by salt spray


The rocks off Maen-dhu Point getting a bashing 


Morning dog walk - wind was getting worse and worse 
I said that The Greeb rocks needed a power wash 

Couldn't stay long out on the point and Wooster and Tilly were on their leads for safety so it was tricky

After I got home I went out onto the balcony - briefly ! Wild sea driving up Cudden Point, lifted by the wind
Noticed that the barbecue was at a cheeky angle despite being roped to the wall on two metal hooks 
We decided to take the dogs to the top end of Porthleven to see the waves and walk the dogs at the same time 
Just amazing looking beyond the entrance to Porthleven Harbour to Trewavas Head 
A huge splash onto the other side of Cudden Point 




That is the end of the old road that went all the way to Loe Bar - I think you can see how part of it came to be washed away 




Wooster enjoying a mad moment - Pointers and wild wind  ! !
The people staying in these holiday lets are either enjoying the spectacle or possibly a little scared 

Home again and Cudden Point was still covered in white water

Sunday - the day before Ophelia !

 It was supposed to be sunny today, but again just a little brightness
Bit misty looking over the bay 
Wooster is thrilled as he's found another ball 
A little blue sky 

If we'd known that this was going to be the best weather of the day, we'd have walked further - as it was around lunchtime the mizzle arrived and that was it for the day

Saturday

 Not the morning we were expecting - it was supposed to be sunny

Up at Oamaru and eventually it was all ready for our new visitors 
Now that the nights are drawing in I like to leave the lights on in case the visitors arrive after dark

I popped out to get a couple of bags of logs and suddenly there was blue sky
Amazing layers of clouds out the the West 


That was it - I went home for a very late lunch 
Afternoon walkies 
Looking up the hill to Trebarvah 
 Even though Tilly doesn't see well, or hear much she suddenly really tugged on her lead - she had spotted this cat on the shed roof

Lovely to meet this couple again with their two Basset Hounds - like us they have an old one and a young one. When we still had Charlie he loved to meet them as his best friend in Leics. was a Basset - Wooster had a great time

I know that this cliff isn't very high, but the message doesn't seem to be getting across 
Looking good down on the beach 
Thought I'd take possibly the last photo of the Yucca flower as I suspect the wind on Monday will might blow it away 
The sunset this evening 
Dropping into a striped cloud
