Saturday

 A trip to Falmouth to Trago to try to replace our dining room pendant light which has self destructed. Sadly we had to order it, so Christmas will be spent with a hole in the ceiling ! We went to take a look at the new cafe that they have put on the top floor - Certainly a cafe with a view. The amazing red and white vessel is Siem Daya a Multi Purpose Offshore Vessel which usually assists with windfarms I gather.  Behind it is the RFA Lyme Bay just arrived back from the Caribbean
 Plenty of tugs here in Falmouth - sadly not a big one that was needed in Mount's Bay today
 Amazing display of lampshades - this really unusual glass & chrome one was around £250.00 thought the lights were fluorescent - or possibly LEDs
 On the rooftop was this gull deterrent - the head moved around - looked like it worked fairly well.
 Getting ready for an outing in the training gig
 We drove out to the end of Loe Bar Road to try to get some shots of the container ship Samskip Express that had suffered from loss of power yesterday and has been dragging her anchor, getting closer & closer to shore. A tug did arrive from Falmouth last night, but the tow line broke & tug fouled its propeller.
 We must have just missed the arrival of the RNLI Penlee Lifeboat Ivan Ellen and the same tug who made valliant efforts to get the tow line attached - a second tug was despatched from Plymouth, but as we were leaving home this evening they were all moving over the bay and are South of Cudden Point - at least the wind has calmed down a bit and the lifeboat was released and returned to base
 The rain stopped as we approached Helston, so we walked the dogs along the lower Penrose Walk - they've been trying to improve drainage along here - not very successfully at this point

 Always plenty of dogs along here - this is a lovely gentle Ridgeback
 Wooster seemed to rather like her
 They were joined by these two cheeky Working Cockers
 They all had a great time
 Moss on the branches looking like sponges
 and the Ferns love them
 The dogs always know if we are going out without them - they never ever share a bed - yet there they were - look at the expression on Wooster's face !

Good food and good company - safe to say we enjoyed it. Thanks for organising it Andrea
