Monthly Photo Challenge: March Move

Not quite there yet, but light at the end of the tunnel and a visit to our new house last weekend was full of sunshine and blue skies. So nice that it seemed a shame to stay in the house and clean and plan, so we didn’t! Friday morning dawned bright and blue and we headed for the nearby Trencrom hill where you can get a view of both coasts. Mount’s Bay with the iconic St Michael’s Mount to the east and St Ives Bay with the Godrevy lighthouse to the west. And a view north along the coast as far as Padstow on a clear day.

Hayle beaches and the coastline to the north

Spying a field full of daffodils in the distance made me want to go and photograph one (field that is not a single daffodil) so we clambered back down the hill and got in the car and drove to one place where I remembered seeing daffodils a couple of years ago near Rinsey Head.

A bowl of chowder for lunch in the delightful village of Porthleven was followed by a walk to the Wheal Prosper engine house. A sunny day in Cornwall and all the stress melted away…

The Cardinal is continuing his photo project throughout 2016 – a blogging event, a monthly photo challenge. Read his blog for the new rules this year (he is running two versions) and to view his interpretation and those of other participants.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Wow Jude, I can’t wait to see more of this idyllic place you are going to call home. What a huge bonus seeing a whole field of golden daffodils.

    1. Can’t wait to start living there PP. Lots to do in the house still and I am monitoring the garden already – gets a LOT of wind! Have spotted a few clematis and other things in bud. House this year. Garden next once I have sussed where the sun shines, what is already there etc. And time to get the camera out!

      1. As a keen gardener you are going to really enjoy watching the garden developed through the seasons then creating your style and I will enjoy following your gardening adventure. Were the previous owners Gardeners?

        1. I think he must have liked plants as he planted this lot and has a couple of small raised beds for veggies. Also had a lot of pots which have gone with him (as has the rhubarb!!!)

        2. Not big at all PP, but given the state of my back probably big enough! The parking space is probably half the size of the garden. I am planning on some big pots there 🙂

    1. Well Australia wouldn’t have me, South Africa became too corrupt and I am too old for New Zealand now so I think this place is the nearest I will ever get to my dream. Plenty of cloud today I might add!

  2. Hope Storm Katie has not affected you, or if it has only minimally. Been too many years since I was in Cornwall, perhaps next time I’m in Somerset (a regular trip) I’ll just keep going 😊

    1. Well I was back in Ludlow and it rained hard during the night and was very windy, but no damage. OH in Cornwall and says all is well!

  3. Sounds like a delightful day. And two beautiful snaps to remember it by. You have deepened my ‘spring envy’ here down under. Enjoy…and good luck with the move.

    1. Move complete. New house starting to look like a new home, still some way to go but next week I am definitely getting outside! And thank you 🙂
