The Road Home

The following photos were taken on the first day of September. It was a beautiful lovely warm sunshiny day.  Warm days like this is but a memory now that autumn has settled in around us.  This was the day we took our American friend up to the see what they say is the best view of our little village.

Isn’t it lovely?  I agree, this is the best view of Boscastle.  And you can find it within the grounds of the Wellington Hotel, just look for the Artist’s Chair.

I absolutely have no idea what she’s looking at.

After a few drinks at the Wellington, it was time to go.   We chose the most scenic and less arduous walk back home – the coastal path.

T actually walked on her own all the way back.  She’s getting really very good at hiking.  My husband says she’s got really strong and muscular legs.  And all the while here I was dreaming that my little T will have long and slim legs unlike my very short and uhm, let’s just say not-very-slim-legs.  Oh well.  One can always dream.

This post is linked-up with Coombe Mill’s Country Kids.  I was hoping to take T up the headland for an autumn walk, but she’s been really poorly lately.  She has a bad cough and cold AGAIN.

Anyway, hope everyone is having a great weekend!

p.s.

Something exciting is happening tomorrow!

You’ll find out soon.

A walk and a hike

Dear Reader,

So this is how it started, Dada and I picked up J from the train station at Exeter.  The next day, we showed him around our little village by the sea.  Like I said in my postcard from Bristol, J is from America.  I call him MY J, because I like to call things “mine”, though I’m not really sure that he is a “thing” just like MY Peppa Pig lunch box or MY DVDS.

Anyway, so the next day I wore the shirt MY J gave me (among other things) and I thought that it would be a good idea to show him around my neighbourhood.  That’s what we did, we went down the village

That’s me eating ice-cream while me and my mum waited for MY J and Dada outside the Witch’s Museum.   She didn’t think it was a good idea for me to go inside.  

We walked up by the coast-gaurd’s hut on our way back.  I got tired from all the walking so here I am waiting for them to catch up with me.  Sometimes, grown-ups are so slow!

The next day we took MY J up for a hike to the next village called Tintagel.  It was a very, very, very long walk! 

 I actually had to give MY baby a piggy-back-ride because she was also too tired to walk!

Dada says this rock formation is called the Lady’s Window.  My mum got all hysterical when my Dada took me to look at it up-close.  She said it made her knees go jelly.  I don’t know why she said that when there was obviously no jelly around!  Sometimes my mum says the silliest things!

The grown-ups were all saying how lovely it was.  I couldn’t understand what the fuss was all about!  I like it when you can actually go near the water (not admire it!) and play with sand.

I walked that path all the way down and up again.

Now you know why I just had to stake a snooze on the bench up there.  There were also other hikers resting at the top of the hill.

It was indeed a lovely day and warm too!  My mum actually had to put some sunblock on me.  I don’t really like that stuff, it’s too sticky.  But mum said I need it to protect my skin from the sun.  Later during the walk, MY J asked if he could have some too.  He said he wasn’t prepared for this kind of weather in England.  He said he only brought rain gear!  It’s been raining this week, I guess if MY J was still here, he’d be happy that he brought all his rain gear stuff.  Mum says summer is gone and autumn is here.  She said it’s time to take out all our winter stuff from hiding.  I didn’t even know they were hiding!  

See yah!

Love,

T
