Beautiful Cornwall

No cards in this post, but we have just got back from a fabulous week in Cornwall, staying at Poltarrow Farm. We had pretty good weather, even managed some sandcastles on the beach at Caerhays....

 Followed by some beach athletics...long jump/triple jump...just the 'boys' not my kind of thing !
 Yep the one below is my Hubby....
 Ninja style ?..............
We had some fabulous days out...Screech Owl Sanctuary....(Near Indian queens)
 where you can gently stroke some of the hand tame owls.
This little guy liked his head scratching !
Then there are the owls who are flight display trained (cannot be handled by the public !)
plus some emu's, goats and meerkats (the showers sent the meerkats undercover and they don't photograph well)...they have a cafe...with  rather nice choc fudge brownies !
We also paid a visit to Pine Lodge Gardens, they have a great Tea room with lovely cakes and scones Mmmm.




They have a Pinetum...where Harry was pretty sure he found this year's Christmas tree....
There was the Craft shops too, and I purchased a couple of items .....
 The boat is from glass artists 'Archipeligo'  purchased in Atishoo (Charlestown)
 The Dancing Puffin came from Mevagissey...it's a lovely print, but we met the artist which is always nice. Forget the name of the shop, but it's opposite a lovely coffee/art shop called Cofro.... have nice cakes !
This guy came from Mevagissey, a shop called, Nautilus...not exactly local craft..but he's fab !

Now back to crafting myself.....
