Not quite sure what's happened to the seasons this year... plums dropping off the tree... autumn fruiting raspberries are well and truly fruiting - and I saw folk picking blackberries a week ago!

Meriel's coming to stay this week - I'll try and get some pics taken to share with you :-) Then I must get the camera charged for Korea!

It's good to have Tim and Bridgie working - they both have temporary jobs and are now looking for permanent positions.

Keith has had a couple of adventures on his bike, he cycled up to Lincolnshire - visiting Skegness and Lincoln and villages en route. He described his evenings after a long bike ride as 'lying in his B&B room watching tv...' just like The Cornish Walker after a day's exertions! He also took his bike down to Brighton and then biked along the coast to Hastings and round - had a good time :-)

Tim and I have put the completion of the coast path on the back burner at the moment. Tim has had a couple of lovely trips over the summer and may be going back to Europe for more exploring. My (and Bridgie's) trip to see Phil is followed by a week in Slovenia with a lady from the golf club and that will take us to mid October... so we're both happy to leave the walk for the time being.


  1. A view from the gold course? Ruthie, you need to get out more.

    But wait, you are!!

    Slovenia will be interesting, quite apart from visiting Phil.

  2. Oh come on Papa!
    It's a heavenly pastoral view and you know it!
    Better than our local golf course that has been half under water from all the rain we've had.
    Marty went for two walks on Friday, one with Grandma down to the beach to see the ducks and then a second walk to another beach with Mama in the afternoon; just to get out after all those wet days!
    Wish you could come with us,
