Snow falls in Newlyn?
A small snowdrift falling in Newlyn? For those that know Newlyn you’ll probably have guessed it’s leftover ice from the fisherman’s catch this morning. It just struck me as amusing seeing the seagull perched on the ice – he’d earlier been delving in finding small bits of fish remnants for his mid morning snack.
Today started with me waking up to this beautiful view of the sun rising – a promise of another fine day ahead.
We decided we would travel down to Penzance in the car and walk to Mousehole. The sea wall which also took a bit of a battering in last years storms has now been restored. Beautiful blue sky. although a slightly fresh wind made for a very comfortable walk.
Mousehole is another small fishing village with a small harbour again bathed in sunshine. Lots of narrow streets and quaint cottages with just a few gift shops, art galleries and cafes.
We decided to have lunch in a lovely cafe called Hole Foods where they had a lovely selection of foods on offer either to eat in or takeaway. I decided to try out the Spicy Lentil Loaf with salad while DH went for a Brie and Ham baguette. A hot drink to go with our lunch, mine was a Cappuccino which came decorated with a sprinkling of chocolate but in the middle of the foamy milk a heart had been formed – how sweet.
They also stocked a lovely selection of local wines, beers, preserves, etc. It was nice to be able to sit and enjoy the food and also have something to look at while eating. They had sour dough and spelt bread available to buy, an assortment of coffees and teas, chocolates, crisps and all sorts of other delights.
We caught the bus back to Penzance and then we returned back to our holiday cottage. The late afternoon has been spent working on the baby sampler as the light in our holiday home is fantastic for stitching.
This evening I will be doing some reading which brings me to today’s photo prompt Book. We always bring along some reading material when we go on holiday. I’d brought two books with me J is for Judgement which I have been reading during my breaks at work and managed to finish yesterday. Today’s reading material will the The Cake Shop in the Garden while DH prefers James Herbert and Ghosts of Sleath.
