So good

Friday 12th August 

So good seeing Luke
For dinner last night
Today spent wandering
Bathed in bright sunlight
Marina boats and yachts
Such a splendid sight

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
Luke and I
Lagos marina
Plenty of watercraft
Garden display
Morning coffee in the shade

Leaving Faro

Thursday 11th August 

On a train to Lagos
Leaving Faro behind
Finally seeing Luke
It's him we're off to find

Love you both so much
My darling sons
Early morning
Another coffee before catching the train
Pool and marina views
That’ll do


Wednesday 10th August 

We landed late last night
An uneventful flight
Faro is a delight
The sun is shining bright

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
Leaving Newquay
Over the Cornish Coast
Forest fires East of Lisbon
Morning coffee
Finding shade
Remains of a Moorish Wall in the old city
Storks build massive nests atop buildings
Bell Tower of a medieval church; Igreja de Santa Maria
The Arco da Vila
A cold beer in a rooftop bar
Views looking forward to the Marina
The Marina
Rooftop pool
Looking West
A splendid mosaic cobbled street
Walking around the marina
Becoming very warm
Many boats tied up
Aeroplanes coming in to land across the sea
The rooftop bar where we were
Seeking shade
Here’s a good spot

It’s nearly time

Tuesday 9th August 

It's nearly time
Lock up and go
Airport tonight
Fly to Faro
We're seeing Luke
Be fun, I know
Quick getaway
Taking it slow
Calm down and breathe
In the sun's glow

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
The putting green is looking very dry
An early morning stroll into town
Not too many people about
Porthmeor Central beginning to fill up
Low tide in the harbour
It’s very warm

A breakfast beer

Monday 8th August 

A breakfast beer
Oh dear, oh dear!
That's how he rolls
Quite simple goals!
We said goodbyes
Away he flies!
Edinburgh bound
Festival sound!

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
Brother and sister-in-law.
Kingsley had a beer for breakfast 😊, before flying off to Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival
Sunny St Ives this lunchtime
Quite busy along the harbour front
High tide

My brother

Sunday 7th August 

Has been so good to see my brother
A quick visit from Chicago
He's been out and about hiking
On the coast path, taking it slow
Beautiful Cornish scenery
It'll be sad to see him go

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Out for dinner a couple of night’s ago
Followed by cocktails on the harbour front
Early evening drinks, at Porthmeor West
Still very warm
Sister-in-law and brother
Self, Catherine, Kingsley, Debbie, Mollie, Gary
Me, sister-in-law, brother, sister, niece, husband
Lengthening shadows
Down the steps to a perfect spot
Saying toodle ooo
And off they go, across the top of Porthmeor, (which is still very busy at 7:30pm this evening).

A lovely day

Saturday 6th August 

A lovely day
For a barbecue
Family together
A great thing to do
In sister's garden
With the sky so blue
We'll just make sure
It's all cooked through!

Love you both so much
Precious sons
