Life through the lens...

By ValC


Another garden.
We had to book this one last week, and checking the weather, thought today would be a good day to visit.
However as always the forecast changed, and after all the fabulous weather we have been having, today said “ Rain”.
Fortunately they were wrong, and it was still 20C and hazy sunshine.
Not too busy when we arrived, and a well organised system with the paths clearly marked, so everyone went the correct way round. No need to bother about distancing as we only met about half a dozen people.

Peaceful as ever. Just the birds singing, and the waves crashing against the shingle when we were down on the beach.
The hydrangeas are the stars of the garden at the moment, even if just passed their best.
This is always my favourite view.

First extra of the fascinating rock / cliff formations.
Second extra, more photos of the garden.

Some Blippers may be interested to know Donald Healey, the racing driver and car designer bought the house in 1961. He used the outbuildings to build prototypes of Rolls Royce engines and running chassis for Jenson - Healey.

On D. day 1944 , 7000 soldiers of the 29th US Infantry Division embarked from Polgwidden Cove at the bottom of the garden.
Hard to imagine today.

Bought a couple of pasties for lunch, and now back at the bungalow having a rest.

Carol has just brought us a cream tea. Home made scones ( 4 large ones) jam and Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream.
After that I don’t think we will want any more food today!
