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

Thursday 4th August 

The Tinners Arms at Zennor
A fabulous place for lunch
Brother and wife hiked the coast path
A few miles they did crunch
My sister joined them too
Quite an energetic bunch

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
The Tinners Arms, Zennor
Pretty outdoor seating areas
Brother and sister-in-law, and sister in the background, ready for their walk back along the coast path
Myself, sister-in-law, husband, sister and brother
We drove back home!
Great views across the fields to the sea
Parched landscape
Looking towards St Ives Bay

Back home

Wednesday 3rd August 

We're safely back home
A long and foggy drive
Just finished unloading
My brother did arrive
Flown over from Chicago
Togetherness we strive
Our mum's big birthday
On August number Five

Love you both so much
Precious sons

Beside the River Frome

Tuesday 2nd August 

Beside the River Frome
For an afternoon stroll
Along the Redcliffe Towpath
Certainly good for the soul

Love you both so much
Precious sons
A little cloudy today
Motorboats and yachts along the river
Misty on the hills towards Swanage
The Old Granary
The Redcliffe Towpath
The towpath dates back to the 13th century
Grounds of the Priory
Bridge over the River Frome
Wareham flowers
A pretty display

Down to the river

Monday 1st August 

Again, we walk down to the river
The pavement throwing off a warm glow
People come to sit, eat and drink
Ducks and swans paddling to and fro

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
Two adult swans with seven cygnets
A lovely family gathering
A fabulous AC Cobra drove in and parked right behind us
Serious automobile envy!!
The sun going down
Low tide
