Balmy November Day

Oh it's been a lovely day; I walked from Perranuthnoe on the coast path towards Marazion, and lay on a beach in the hot sun, yes HOT, and the sound of the gently lapping waves sent me into a daydreamy sleep. 

Sparkling, glistening, shimmering ocean

St. Michael's Mount was beautifully lit by the sun and looked very fairytale indeed.

Later on at dusk, the tide had gone out far enough to walk over to this magical isle

Looking back at Marazion from The Mount, a car crosses the causeway.

Then home to light the wood burner and get the place all cosy!

A risotto bubbling away for tea - king prawns with courgette, onion, red pepper and samphire

Such a comfort food for these colder, darker nights.

I am busy preparing for a Christmas Fair which will take place next week at The Cowslip Workshops in Launceston, on the 16th, 17th and 18th November. I will be selling lots of my hand made decorations:

 alongside some stitched textile pieces and a selection of antique items. I do hope some of you will be able to make it. In Portscatho on the 18th November is also our annual 'Homespun Fair', which sadly I will not be able to attend because of the clashing dates. Patsy will be opening 'The Sea Garden' on the day; I know that Gertie will be filling the shop with lots of new Christmas goodies!

Thank you all so much for your continuing support, and I do so appreciate your comments every one; I'm sorry I haven't been 'getting out there' in the blogging community so much lately....... I feel a little Christmas giveaway is in order soon.....so watch this space!


  1. How lovely to be able to do that walk and be on the beach, we've walked that way many a time.
    I am so looking forward to going back to Cornwall again. The wood burning stove looks very cosy, along with a nourishing meal. Good luck with your Christmas fair.
