Tuesday

 Glorious morning
Fisheries Protection vessel St Piran passing the two tankers 
Scillonian III about to pass Marine Discoveries Shearwater II 
Mount's Bay looking wonderful & we decided that we really ought to make the best of this super weather so off we went to Porthgwarra 
The walk up the lane with lots of assorted Butterflies - Painted Lady 
A very tatty Red Admiral 
Speckled Wood 
Up to the top of the lane and out onto the heathland 
Just a few patches of colourful Heather 
Wonderful sky today 
Wolf Rock Lighthouse 
Longships Lighthouse 
The spot where we always turn - my favourite view 
The reason why we turn here ! 


Looking over the tops of the cliffs to Land's End  
Rather a good view of The Isles of Scilly - with Round Island Lighthouse to the right 
Not very good shots, but great to see all these Seals hauled out 
Wondered if these were pups as they are pale and small 
Looking over to the NCI Station on the top of Gwennap Head 

The alternative route to Gwennap Head - not for me ! 
Another tatty Red Admiral 
Struggles to see what this one was - a really sad Peacock Butterfly 
Lovely Painted Lady 
Looking down Porthgwarra Cove 
Wooster meets Fritz the Pointer ! 
The sand colouring the water 

Gannets on their way home 
I'd forgotten just how steep the walk is to the top 
We'd already walked up this part ! 
The Seals from the top of Gwennap Head 
Super view from up there 
After all that walking - 12,000 steps and lots of ups and downs this had to be done 
After almost being taken out on a narrow lane by a massive speeding potato lorry we eventually got to the Penzance Bypass
The setting sun 

We're all tired - knee seems OK and we hope to be able to get out again tomorrow

Monday

 Amazingly calm morning, with the two tankers pointing in different directions on the calm sea
Some dark clouds as Jim walked Wooster 

Scillonian III setting off on a much calmer trip today 

That's better ! 
I went to the window to get ready for a photo of Scillonian III abd saw an unusual bird in the Cedar Tree 
It flew onto the pine tree and I realised it was a Green Woodpecker 

Had to take these through the window as trying to open one would have frightened it away 
Jim went down to mow the lawn and I noticed Wooster was very interested in something over the wall 
It was neighbour Rosie exploring the hedgerow 
Afternoon walkies and it was still calm and mainly sunny 


With all the dull weather I have missed the sun setting  behind the Church as it's now well past that and heading for Mousehole
