Who says it always rains on a Bank Holiday !

 Scillonian III leaving Mount's Bay on a glorious blue sky and blue sea day
 Who goes there !
 We decided to try the walk over the cattle field again
 Up the hill to Trebarvah we went
 The wall at Oamaru Barn is looking lovely
 The cattle were just making their way through to the next field, so we just walked around them - giving them a wide berth
 There's always one !
 Looks like a field of Onions
Still haven't found one with a bee inside the flower
 The Early Purple Orchids that we saw a few weeks ago were well past their best
 But here - specially for Kathy in St Austell are lots more that we found - these were right on top of the wall, almost hidden by other plants
 I decided to carefully check the other side of the wall and there they were - huge number of them
 Still looking lovely and fresh
 Stunning sight - just a pity that there was so much else growing around them

 Super spot when you arrive back at the coast

 What was left of the beach was getting crowded

 Looking East to Cudden Point

 There was quite a breeze up on the hill, but today it was welcome as it was so warm
 Penzance yacht Windtalker
 Having fun in the eddys
 Seal lounging on some submerged rocks

 Think that this must be a Whitethroat - never seen one before
 It was singing beautifully
 Strange how the Daisies are only growing on the footpath
 Lots of huge patches of Germander Speedwell
 So pretty when you look at it closely

 Skybus sight seeing flights have been turning over the village
 We stopped off for coffee and cake at The Cabin
 We then popped down to look at what was left of the beach
 Really stunning day
 Jim feeding his "baby"
 Still glorious when it was time for afternoon walkies
 Lovely light this afternoon

 Still busy down on the beach


  1. Superb photos! Your garden is looking lovely. Cornwall at it's best today! Thank you Sue.

    1. Garden looks better in the photos than in reality - not sure why !Weather this holiday week has been great - nice to see happy faces ! Sue

  2. Beautiful flowers and scenery.....and weather ! We had the heating on all day ! brr ! A night of thunder and lightning and torrential rain...still raining...think i'll return to Cornwall !(via your lovely photo's ! thank you Sue.macca.(just looked at the Minack webcam....what a difference four hundred and fifty miles make !!!!!

    1. We have been so lucky - after missing the heat wave a few weeks ago ! Must have been our turn. Fine again today - then possibly not as good.
      Saw a message from friends that are in Lincolnshire in their caravan and had a terrible thunder storm. Hope it soon clears away and you get some sun. Sue

  3. So glad that you had a sunny Bank Holiday. Our Federal holiday yesterday, Memorial Day, was grey and overcast, as it has been since we got off the plane on Saturday evening, and the same today. However, I can't complain as it helps the garden to survive the heat to come. I really enjoy seeing your flowers and birds because it keeps me up to date with the seasons in Cornwall. Thanks for posting!

    1. Pleased you got home safely - the fine weather has been great, but like you I think I would struggle to cope with it all the time. Good to see the visitors with happy faces - even if there are rather too many of them Sue

  4. It's the first thing I do when I get in from work be it 3pm or 10.30pm is view your blog. Your photos really brighten my day. Reminders of places we have been many times and also places not visited yet. Roll on August when we have our holiday. Anne.

    1. Too many people here at the moment to venture out too far, so I'm afraid the photos will be mainly of our usual walkies - and I'm busy getting ready for our holiday to The Isles of Scilly. Here's hoping you get the kind of weather we've had this week when you come down on holiday, Sue
