It was gusting at around 50mph as I walked round Maen-dhu Point
Big beach, but hardly a soul down there
Lots of boats down in the harbour now
Spotted these three this afternoon - rather wild conditions out there
East wind as you can see
Lovely Mahonia in full flower
I walked the dogs over the top to Trenow this afternoon
All the fields are being prepared for the next crop - more Cauliflowers I assume !
Dogs sticking to the path like good dogs !
The Rheas watched us walk past, sadly they haven't got a little house any more

Collision with Andrea DoriaOn the night of July 25, 1956, at 11:10 pm, in heavy fog in the North Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Nantucket, the Stockholm and the Andrea Doria of the Italian Line collided in what was to become one of history's most notorious maritime disasters.
This is a photo of her after the colision.
Five crewmembers on the Stockholm were killed instantly and several more were trapped in the wrecked bow. Despite its having sunk about 3 ft (0.9 m), the crippled Stockholm helped in the rescue and ended up carrying 327 passengers and 245 crewmembers from the Andrea Doria, in addition to her own passengers and crew. After Andrea Doria sank, Stockholm sailed to New York City under her own power and arrived on July 27. The crushed bow portion was repaired at a cost of US$1 million three months later.
