Cornwall 2018

Cornwall was fabulous, as usual! On our way down, we decided to drive across Dartmoor. There was a sheep sat right in the middle of the road. Cars were carefully driving around her, she wasn’t bothered in the slightest and carried on chewing while watching them go past. But it didn’t occur to anyone to get out of their car and move her along a bit. A job for us then! We parked up and walked over slowly, as we got close she stood up and ambled away. People are careful around the animals, and the animals are used to traffic so she probably would’ve been fine but I secretly like to think we saved her 😀

We stayed at Tinners Cottage It was lovely and we’ll definitely book it again. We had to block the steps to the higher part of the garden though, Scampi went up there and managed to get onto the garage roof 😀

Scampi was pretty good, he was much more sociable than on previous holidays. We ate ice cream at Callestick Farm  – and I mean we ate ice cream at the farm. Scampi was perfectly calm while we sat and ate, he knew we were going to give him the tubs to lick when we’d finished 😀 We walked near the animals and he met the pigs, he’s always liked pigs and says a polite hello through the fence. We walked along lots of beaches and spent quite a bit of time at Golitha Falls We still can’t walk around the shops with him without military precision planning, we have a quick look at the area then have conversations that start like this – “You take him over there for an amble while I pop into this shop, then we’ll swap so you can browse the all-important beer shop” then I scoop a handful of treats out of my pocket to give to Mr MB in case of a barky emergency, because he almost always forgets to fill his pockets before we go out 😀

Instead of packing up and heading straight home on our last day, we visited Golitha Falls again and went for a walk with friends and their two dogs. Luckily Scampi likes them, lol. When we got back to the car park, we dried the dogs off and had breakfast at Inkie’s Smokehouse We’d heard good things about this place, so I ordered a bacon sandwich, expecting a really nice bacon sandwich. It was amazing (yes, a bacon sandwich really can be amazing!) – thick sliced sourdough bread, lots of lovely smoked bacon and the bread was buttered, no nasty margarine in sight. It filled me up for the day, I didn’t eat again til 8pm. I’ll definitely visit again.

We’re home now and I can put my garden plan into action. There’s so much to sort and tidy, we also have to move a couple of raised beds to work on the fence and there’s a huge tree overhanging our garden, the owner refuses to do anything about it (well she says she will, then doesn’t) so we’re going to chop at it ourselves 😀

The veg patch has been checked, we’ve pulled up some beetroot and picked the last of the tomatoes and cucumbers.

I realised yesterday that I have a couple of comments on previous posts – I’m not ignoring anyone, I promise! I used to get notifications but I didn’t have any for these, I’ll check my settings to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Autumn

Autumn is my favourite season. It’s warm during the day and cool in the mornings and evenings. The trees look amazing. Walks are enjoyed much more and I arrive home still feeling fresh and full of energy, rather than drained and looking like I’ve spent an hour in a sauna, lol. And I go to Cornwall – this year we’re staying on the edge of Bodmin Moor, near Golitha Falls which is one of my favourite inland places.

I’ve packed some crochet supplies, I want some little gift bags for Christmas so I have red, green and white yarn to play with. I want some reading time too, I’m halfway though a book at the moment and I’d like to finish it while we’re away.

My fantasy of sitting outside little cafes next to the sea never quite works out, Scampi takes offence if people come too close, so while I hope we’ll be able to do this at least once, it probably won’t happen. We’ll take flasks to a quiet spot on the beach instead.

Look at that sweet face, surely he wouldn’t bark at people for no apparent reason, would he? 😀
