The South West Coast Path Circular Walk From Home

We're having such beautiful weather here at the moment, so we're making the most of it!
Last week we decided to do one of our favourite local walks...
Taking the lane past our hamlet...
And the footpath down towards Caerhays...
There had been a thick sea mist all morning, which started to lift.
1 mile from home...
Tim Burton's film crew were starting to take over the beach.
After feasting on fruit & handfuls of nuts on the beach, the mist cleared & we got on our way...
We joined the coast path to head home...
Looking back down on Porthluney Beach.
A mysterious standing.stone.. Neither of us remember seeing it before!
Taking in the view...






These steps through the woodland are never-ending... 
Out the other end...
Down more steps...
This little chap ran across the path - we do see lizards a lot in our garden too.
We think the only way to get to Lambsowden Cove is by boat...
As it really is quite a long way down!

Happy Bebe

For the very first time, our visit with Bebe was an absolute joy! It was so nice to be with her & wonderful to see her so positive at long last. Is it thanks to the drugs? Or is she finally settling? Probably drug related, but at least she wasn't tormented by all her anxieties...

We took in some family photos & also printed off information explaining why she's there & where we are, etc to help calm her down at night, as the staff were telling us last weekend that they continue to have problems with her in the night. We've also promised Bebe that we'd write down everything about the kids, she likes to know how old they are & what they're all doing & always asks us several times each visit, so we'll get that done for next time.

Her new improved mood is hopefully here to stay, she's even been reading a newspaper each day, which is something she found difficult to do before - she didn't have the interest or the ability to sit for long.

Nearby Film Set - A Walk From Our House

There's always lots of filming going on around here, but a few weeks ago we noticed a film crew base in a field near here, with security manning the gates even in the middle of the night (we were returning from one of Sime's late gigs). We were told that it's a Tim Burton film as he'd visited a local Indian restaurant & we were intrigued. After bumping into some neighbours in the week who told us to have a walk along the coast path, we decided to go along to investigate with Hugo today.



The film is based on a children's book, set on a fictional Welsh island & is starring Samuel L Jackson, Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp & Eva Green.
Although there were only security guys around today.

On the coast path.
Looking down on the village.

This whole set has been built on the village car park - Hard to believe that this isn't a real building...
Nor this one...

These too are part of the set...
Sime tapped the grave stones & they are plastic...

Garden Musings and The Power Of Juice

Last weekend we needed to catch up on some sleep, too many late nights took their toll & we were grateful to not be caring for Bebe - relishing the opportunity to lie in bed until the afternoon for 3 days on the trot... Such a treat!
We've enjoyed sharing our home with 2 lots of friends (something we had to put on hold while Bebe was here), so it's been really lovely.  We've also had some exceptionally tough work days, but continue to be supported by our fresh juices. We just have one for lunch & love the natural lift it gives us, yesterday - we cleaned the big holiday home we look after non-stop for over 7 hours. Admittedly, we were knackered at the end, but we did the work of 4 people on our usual breakfast of super food porridge, then green juice followed by a banana for lunch. We'd taken extra food to eat too, as we knew it was going to be a hard day, but we didn't have time for anything else. After a good night's sleep, we have felt rejuvenated to…
