 As I opened the curtains I spotted HMS Argyle a type 23 "Duke" class Frigate
 A little more cloud this morning

 Hannah is visiting Oamaru Barn again and really wanted to meet Maisie - and for once Maisie wanted to meet her - she didn't back off
 and allowed Hannah to gently stroke her - somethin she only allows her "special friends" to do
 So pleased for them both !
and a goodbye kiss - Maisie has made so much progress
Mass exodus from Penzance
Off went HMS Argyle making for Plymouth
James Roberts out pulling pots on Bonnie Grace
Cruise Ship Queen Victoria heading to Southampton
Not as many in the water today

Lovely old Austin

There had been dark clouds out to the West all day and they were even darker as we walked the dogs this afternoon
Southern Hawker was very kind and landed in front of me

Just dark clouds - no rain

Hauling nets in front with Relief Lifeboat 16-13 Victor Freeman on her way to Newlyn
Sun dropping behind the very dark clouds

 Another fine morning

Lots of cloud out to the West

More Sloes as I walked up the hill
Sadly rather small - but 15 metre mini square rigger Marjorie
Santiana looking good as always
Possibly a nice looking Cornish Shrimper

Plenty of happy people on the beach
 Sun behind some thin cloud

 So good to have another fine morning

I set off for Penzance as I was booked in for an eye test to get new reading glasses at last !

Little Turnstone - Always bits of Pastie left behind by the Herring Gulls  who tend to badger the people sitting along the edge of the harbour
The rather distinctive orange Zulu being transformed by Mr Thiel
Thought I'd get a shot of these pink Pampas grasses - they were not correctly labelled in the pot and far too tall for our site - every year they get blown over very quickly
We walked down to the beach ramp to take a few shots
Looking good 
Some hard work gone into that channel
A few more clouds again but it was still warm

Some nice mackerel sky appearing
Think that this is the Scenic Tours helicopter
Distant shot of a lugger crossing the bay

The lugger Grayhound setting out in the evening glow
Well in some ways it's good to see the setting sun
But it also means we're heading for Autumn and Winter
