How I celebrated my birthday

We caught the Cremyll ferry over to Mount Edgcumbe on a cloudy and overcast day.
We walked through some of the gardens and past the small lake where we saw this small group of baby geese.
Admiring the beautiful wild flowers as we walked along the coast path and the view towards our intended destination of Kingsands
On arrival at Kingsand we stopped off at this local public house for our dinner and liquid refreshment admiring the steep, narrow roads that form Kingsands.
After the battering the west country took with the storms earlier in the year this building with it’s clock tower was in danger of falling into the sea so remedial work is being done to hopefully ensure it’s safety for a few years yet.
After lunch we walked around the corner to the neighbouring Cawsands and further along the coast path before returning to enjoy an ice cream as the sun had come out.  We sat and admired the sea views while waiting for the Cawsand ferry to take us back to Plymouth.
While on the ferry I took photos of the one of the lighthouses in Plymouth Sound, a naval ship and Fort Picklecombe which is no longer a fort but residential accommodation.

We arrived back in Plymouth at The Barbican and while walking back into the city centre we came across these fish – the equivalent of the Wallace and Gromit statues in Bristol.
Mother–in–law had kindly baked me a cake and in the evening DH took me out to my favourite vegetarian curry house where I thoroughly enjoyed a vegetable biryani and chapati.

Sorry it's taken me so many days to get back here and see your birthday photos, Linda. My sister was here for a few days and now I'm hopelessly behind! Thank you for sharing your photo diary of your celebration! All the photos are so cool! So many of them remind me of the Doc Martin TV show we had over here and loved. Your MIL made you a very professional and scrummy-looking cake!! Hugs, Darnell
