A breath of fresh air!

Hello again. It's raining here at the moment, so I thought that I'd take the opportunity to have a little chat. We had a lovely day yesterday, out and about on the North Cornwall coast. Although it wasn't particularly sunny, more importantly, it didn't rain! We started off visiting Boscastle. It's hard to imagine that in 2004, the village was devastated by a flash flood. All the damage has been repaired, and the harbour is as lovely as before.

We then called in at Tintagel, reputed to be the birthplace of King Arthur, before ending the day at Port Isaac. Port Isaac is a really lovely fishing village, with winding lanes leading down to the working harbour. It's where TV's Doc Martin was filmed, and is also the home of the SeaShanty singers, Fisherman's Friends. We're hoping to return there on Friday evening to hear them singing. I also had my (first!) cream tea in Port Isaac, and it was deeeeeeeeelicious! Going, going, scone!

Cream tea!

I finished my pink girly socks, and they almost match. There was a join in the yarn, and I had to wind on to get to the correct colour section. Still, nobody's going to be looking that closely at my feet!

At the Old Post Office in Tintagel, there was a basket of locally made ceramic buttons. I couldn't resist! I just need to find a perfect project for each of them now!

We are off to The Eden Project today, and maybe we'll call in at Padstow later. The rain is moving east, so it should be clear mid morning. And the sun is due to shine, shine shine for the rest of the week. Yippee!

Sounds like you are having a great time, despite the lack of sunshine so far. I love those buttons! RosX
