The ocean

Standard
Monday 16th May 

The ocean gently laps the shore
Sparkling turquoise waves roll in
And yet, beyond the horizon
A squally storm creates a din

Some things are masterfully hidden
Beneath the surface, life's in a spin
Don't be fooled by the calmness
For composure is wearing thin

Love you both so much
Beloved sons

We love you

Standard
Sunday 15th May 

We love you
Unconditionally
Ties are bound
Orchestral symphony
Soul to soul
Shining brilliantly
Touching hearts
With authenticity

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

Mesmerising scene

Standard
Saturday 14th May 

Mesmerising scene
Forever changing
The deep blue ocean
Power wide-ranging

Yet peaceful and calm
Waves never ending
Transforming shapes
Those colours blending

Relaxing movement
Spiritual lending
Just drawn to the sounds
Spume flies ascending

Love you both so much
Beloved sons

Looking West
Porthmeor Beach this afternoon
Towards the Island
Having fun in the waves
Smeaton’s Pier
One of the Jumbo’s returning from a sail in the bay

The opening day

Standard
Friday 13th May 

The opening day
And it's in full sway
Sitting and observing
All kinds of food serving
Festival of delights
Sharing delicious bites

Love you both so much

Sitting on the terrace at the Pedn Olva Hotel
Great views of Porthminster Beach
First day of the Food and Drink Festival
A few swimmers enjoying the waves
Many stalls offering tasters of local food and drink

An afternoon stroll

Standard
Wednesday 11th May 

An afternoon stroll
To Porthminster Beach
Beautiful blue skies
Are all within reach
And stopping awhile
A coffee for each
Just watching the boats
Above, seagulls screech

Love you both so much
Precious sons

The harbour, with the Chapel on the Island in the background
The James Stevens No 10 lifeboat
A narrow view looking down to Crab Rock
Porthminster Beach
Lovely blue skies
Turquoise seas
Getting ready for the Food and Drink Festival this weekend
A Barbecue Bar
A view through the trees, across Pedn Olva, to the harbour
Sitting in an elevated position at the Pedn Olva Hotel
Across the harbour from the Malakoff
Smeaton’s Pier
Sunshine and blue skies

Sea and beach collide

Standard
Tuesday 10th May 

Worries in the sand
Written at low tide
Are soon washed away
Incoming waves, glide
Disappearing thoughts
Sea and beach collide

Love you both so much

Porthmeor West
Fun in the waves
The tide is coming in
The Island
Pretty blues
Surf school
At the slipway on the harbour
A wider view, with some blue sky overhead

And

Standard
Sunday 8th May 

And
It will take
As
Long to make
The
Pain to shake
To
Mend the break
Keeps
Me awake
Try
To soothe the ache

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

Rocky blues
Not too windy on Porthmeor Beach this afternoon
West Porthmeor
Quite a few enjoying the sunshine after a misty start
A sunny corner of the harbour
Low tide
Seagulls everywhere
