This is Maen Porth on the coast path south of Falmouth.
You can get a good insight here and if you are interested can see a recording of the Red Arrows here

The boats made a great sight as they all sailed out to sea together. Sometimes they raced oat at sea and other times within the harbour area. It was quite confusing to watch from the land as the various classes took different courses, and set off at ten minute intervals...
I shall post a few more from our camping trip tomorrow...

"Dad you've made me look like a Muppet" was Miranda's reaction to seeing my picture of her. I thought it was quite amusing that she was instanly recognisable, and she wasn't in the least bothered by it. Good to know she's got a sense of humour...
We've been for a bike ride this afternoon into Dibden Enclosure and over towards Beaulieu and back via Blackfield.

This has long been one of our favourite reads at bedtime. It's from a book called People Poems, and I also recorded another poem which may get an airing later featuring Gregory Griggs! Miranda very keen on having herself recorded at the moment, we did Barbie Girl last night but I've not posted that one...

Taking a few minutes lunchtime to sit and watch the boats going by (or was it the clouds going over) whilst Miranda practices her jumping over me. You know it's just a matter of time before she launches herself onto your chest.
Lewis has been sailing his model Wayfarer, having spent the morning making sails and rigging the boat. He tried it on Hatchet pond, but the weather was very gusty, so rather tricky to get it to perform. He's been adjusting rigging and redesigning components since coming home!
There's video footage on the Cowes.co.uk website of the collision between a supertanker and a yacht. A timely reminder that a blast of the horn is all you'll get if you are in their way

Have been meaning to scan this one for a few weeks but got buried under a pile of papers. I'm no longer able to remember what the wheels represent - maybe it's a bike?

Popi (as she called it) was a visitor in our downstairs, and Caroline managed to get him/her/it into the observation tank, and Mippy has had great fun feeding and watering it. We even made a small movie but I had not the energy to load it onto the blog...
We took Mousey across the field at lunchtime to the far hedge and he scampered out across the grass and into a hole in the tree trunk.
The following mainly for Lewis' inspiration, but you can see Calshot in the background, and he has been out in 38 knots...
