nr. truro

I am not a regular visitor to national trust gardens/buildings for a few reasons (too silly to go into here). anyway I did get to visit trelissick gardens just outside truro on saturday. perhaps more impressed with the house that is still lived in by its current owners (the garden was given to the national trust in 1955), I really liked the fact that the manor house was bulit in the shelter of the river valley but has amazing view across the fal river.

surf stuff

last friday was a good sunny day (at home in cornwall). carol (mrs g) along with sue, & claire finally were abe to get things sorted out and arrange a full 2 plus hours of surf training/lesson. so good to see people enjoying something that is so important to me. even though I wasn't feeling too well that day (dodgy fish & chips a couple of days previous) I had a great day watching from the beach. impressed with their efforts in a dropping swell with still a bit of strength left.

I remember writing something similiar last august, as the weather becomes even more wet and cold in cornwall. we/I have such a short memory so I thought I would post a couple ofpicture taken just last week in between the rain showers we seem to have every day each august. certainly over the last three years down here.
