 Breezy morning
 Up on top of the spoil heap

 I went into Penzance for a load of shopping

The beautiful big lugger Grayhound on the end of Lighthouse pier

 The new goods vessel for Scilly, Mali Rose has lost her hopper that was used to deliver grain to the fish farms
 Karen of Ladram just about to go through the gaps to land her catch for Wednesdays market
 Think this must have been Pilgrim of Brixham on her way west to Scilly
 Light not good for this side of The Mount today
 Jubilee Pool looking lovely today
My favourite colour Canna Lillies just opposite Jubilee Pool
 The computer repair shop that failed to sort out the PC has turned into a super Indoor Market in Causewayhead with lots of varied goods - including this wonderful bread from Kelp Bakery
 A bit of wind on the water today
Boys were still going on the tractors as we set off on our afternoon walkies

Really going for it ! Getting the fields ready for yet more planting tomorrow

Penlee Inshore Lifeboat 'Paul Alexander' launched at 18:09 this evening - Falmouth Coastguard received reports of a kayaker who had capsized and was in difficulties near Cudden Point.
Penlee ILB proceeded at full speed across the bay to find the casualty had climbed onto the rocks. Once it was established they were ok the crew recovered the drifting kayak and returned it to Prussia Cove.
Penzance Coastguard Rescue team were also tasked - they met the casualty as he walked along the coast path and ensured that no medical treatment was required. The team then helped recover his kayak from the lifeboat.
The kayaker had capsized, but due to the strong wind, the kayak was drifting quicker than the person could swim. Thankfully he was dressed appropriately and was wearing a lifejacket. He managed to swim ashore, but this 'shout' could have had a very different outcome had a lifejacket not been worn.
Penlee Inshore returned to station at 19:15, was washed down, refueled and ready for the next service.
Crew - Ben Keogh (helm), Paul Boulton and Tom Matson.
Weather WNW 20knts, 1m swell.

 Nice colours as the sun went into some high cloud

Nice moon as well
