 Back to damp and wet conditions today, I managed a quick walk when it was almost dry 
 Merlin  from RNAS Culdrose
Sadly after this it just rained or we had mizzle, so no afternoon walkies
As I was out on the balcony checking if it was raining I spotted this 
Assume it was some kind of exercise or  test for the boat 

In he went 

As you can see the sea has got very disturbed today 

Off they went bouncing over the waves

Thursday a a trip to Liskeard via Cardinham Woods

 As forecast the rain had finished and it was quite a bright and warmer morning
Wooster still not feeling like looking right over his wall 
The Belladonna Lillies had survived the heavy rain 

Some nice clean waves this morning 
We stopped off at Cardinham Woods near Bodmin to give the dogs a run. Rather cold there so even Jim put his jacket on 
The dogs enjoy this woodland walk
Had a lovely visit to see sister Pat and her husband - so good to see Pat now able to walk around the house without need of crutches - just needs to keep up the physio to get ready for a holiday in October
Never managed to get a photo of Wooster drinking before 
It's a case of "do you drink much?" 
"No, I spill most of it"
Nice to see so much lush greenery  
Jim managing to collect Tilly, who tends to move too fast when going downhill and plays deaf when you call her ! 
We then met this handsome 7 month old Pointer - 
not sure that Wooster was too impressed 
Such a handsome boy 
We were sad to hear that they never let him run free - always on a long lead - Oh dear !  
We got home after a pitstop at the Services near Victoria and I went for my swim and sadly missed the sunset
Jim got this on his camera 
and I took this when I got back upstairs

Through the mist the lovely Bessie Ellen crossing the bay and now at anchor up The Helford River. 
It rained all day sometimes heavier and sometimes just drizzle, so the  dogs  didn't get a walk until late afternoon
Damp and nasty 

Meanwhile as I was about to take the wheelie bin up the road I found this grasshopper on the blind. No idea how long it had been in the garden room, but I managed to get it outside again

Morning walkies up the hill 
& back down again 
Meanwhile I popped into Penzance 

The Elizabeth N under repair in the dry dock 
Mali Rose - awaiting repair 
Also in the wet dock  the Hake boat PZ36 Ajax 
Never knew her previous name - Golden West 
A cheeky peek through the door 
Happy Return safe and sound 
After going home to deal with the Boiler Service guy (all passed OK)  I went up to Oamaru Barn as the TV was not going straight to Sky. Eventually found that the HDMI cable had been moved - should have thought of that first ! !
Nice view of The Mount today 
Cloud rising from the South this afternoon  
More cloud all round as I walked the dogs this afternoon
The air has been so clear today that I heard this SAR helicopter 4 or 5 minutes before I could see it 

Strange mixture of clouds 

Jim had been mulching the field as it has really been growing recently - he was joined by Wooster who loves running up and down with him
Looking good 
Wooster's lovely green feet 
Nice sunset again 

Through the kitchen window
