Thursday

 Up at Trebarvah it was looking like "Tractors at Dawn" for the David Browns
 Stunning morning and the massive Spring Tide beach was looking wonderful as Jim walked the dogs

 Looked like it was going to be a busy day - but we had a mower that needed mending !
 Off we all went to St Just, where Olivers Fordsen Tractor was waiting to be repaired
 Sadly the engine blew at the St Buryan Show
 and he needs it for his wedding in a couple of weeks  Oh heck !
 We then drove onwards to Pendeen Watch, which wasn't as busy as we were expecting
 Wonderful views along the coast with the blue sea and white water
 The ruins of the old Levant Mine - I think !
 Geevor is the largest preserved mine site in the country it is a visitor attraction run by the Trevithick Trust recognising the history of tin mining in Cornwall
 Another of the many old Tim Mine buildings in this area
 Very loose edges of the cliff here as we  walked  down and then along the footpath above the beautiful Portheras Cove
 The path was lined with these super Royal Ferns
 I'm told that this is Purple Loostrife - really pretty
 We then walked down to the  little fishing cove just along the rocks from the main beach
 It seems to have gained a lot of sand since we were last here. We sat above the beach and had a cup of tea and enjoyed the warm sunshine
The stunning Portheras Beach
Walking back to the car, we realised we could just about see The Isles of Scilly

What a treat from you this morning....love that piece of coast..tea garden looks lovely have seen it when we have hurtled round on the open top bus ! ! thought they had discontinued the service handy a few years ago when we came by train. Coming by car this year and breaking the journey ( orders from those who must be obeyed ! ) googled the tea garden they say 'phone to check for October opening....something else to add to the itinerary ! thanks Sue.macca

    1. Think Rosemergy Tea Garden is possibly doubtful in October as they don't have much room inside - hope you're lucky and we get a wonderful October !
      We had really intended to walk on the Moors (Men an Tol etc) but realised at St Just that the NW wind was just too cold, so went to Pendeen Watch instead - really pleased that we did. Sadly it looks like today is the last of the really good ones for now. Supposed to be a "blue moon" tonight - will keep watching, but might get more cloud tonight grrr ! Sue
