Staying nicely out off the NW wind, we walked from Trelissick around the creeks, catching wonderful views of the estuary through the trees. After an afternoon nap in the gardens, we moved South to The Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth, where we watched the world go by from the terrace overlooking the harbour. An afternoon reading books and paddling on Gyllie Beach built up an appetite ahead of supper and the World Cup Final.

28 Years

We celebrated 28 years of marriage at The Flying Fish restaurant, overlooking the South Cornwall coastline. The setting, service and food were absolutely superb, suitably befitting such a milestone in our relationship. Set in an elevated position, above sub tropical gardens, we felt blessed with the location and each other's company, as we savoured a wonderful five course meal over three hours.

Rachel and Jonathan Maxted

We shared a fabulous day with friends, celebrating Rachel's wedding at Trinity and reception at Puckrup Hall. The early rain stopped as she arrived at church, the rest of the day was warm and bright with a perfect evening to follow. Excellent company, speeches, dinner, live band .... and table decorations.

Claire started her birthday with presents, then salmon on scrambled ducks eggs and after a relaxing morning, moved on to The Star Bistro for posh lunch. We took in the views before a relaxing afternoon, supper cooked by Hannah and then a relaxing evening. Quite relaxing!

Up The Hill

A Father's Day at Prescott Speed Hill Climb was enjoyed, surrounded by family, the noise of restored engines and the smell of oily exhausts. Fun to watch and this is what it looks like from the cars.
Whilst not strictly Bugatti owners, we did avail ourselves of the facilities accorded to discerning patrons like ourselves. We basically blended right in.... right up to getting into our Suzuki Alto for the trip home.

Not Really Lost

Not being quite sure where you are is not necessarily the same as being lost: Tim and I set off on our road bikes for Tewkesbury and then headed West towards Ledbury. Spying a small road South signposted to Redmarley we risked being geographically embarrassed as we ventured into the unknown. We passed through Pendock and other sleepy villages before stopping at Maismore for snacks, overlooking the fast flowing, muddy River Severn. It was then a simple quick blast home on more familiar roads.
With a nice warm evening in prospect, undeterred by the fact that I have recently demolished the barbeque, we sizzled sausages on the chimenea for supper and I stupidly taught Tim 'Pass The Pig', which he then kept winning.
