We have clear roads!
It’s been around six weeks since I last left the island so it’s going to be a big shop
Photographed from a Canberra?
Lol, would visit with that sort of crossing.
Any time mate.
The Aberdeen/Lerwick ferry is usually (almost always) absolutely fine in Summer.
@coco was brave enough to do it in Winter!
For goodness sake, shine your boots, scruffy buggers.
Started the day feeling slightly nauseous having seen how the tabloids were covering the Met police story. Those papers are in turn racist, homophobic & misogynist and constantly rail against woke-ness yet suddenly they see fit to lay into the Met for being precisely the opposite of woke. Hypocrisy off the scale.
Anyhow a bracing dose of fresh air was needed so decided to do another stretch of the SW Coast path with Harry & the dog.
We started inland, headed West down to Talland Bay, back East along the coast path to Looe & then back up to the start point.
Talland Bay is a favourite summer spot with a lovely beach (with nice cafe) & interesting rocks to explore. It sits just East of Polperro & is the home of Richard & Judy although we’ve never actually seen them there.
The path took us below the church of St Tallan.
& I was able to stop & watch a kestrel at work for a while.
Path heading east
The newly flowering gorse was particularly luminous today
Soon St George’s island just off Looe came into view.
I was diverted off the path to take a look at the remains of an old chapel called Lammana. It was featured on Time Team back in 2008 but I don’t recall the episode & there really isn’t much to see now.
Still it did give a very good view of the island looking pretty exotic.
Need to visit in a kayak or send the drone over. I think there are 3 houses on the island but not sure if any of them are inhabited permanently.
Coming into Looe. They have had a really good music festival centred on that beach, at least before Covid anyway.
A nice bronze memorial to Nelson, the one eyed seal who frequented this coast for 25 years.
West Looe is a quirky place with plenty of quite old & small fishermen’s cottages.
The long climb up West Looe hill led eventually to Portlooe & this cross from the dark ages set into a hedge.
A good walk this, blew the cobwebs out!
I was getting worried that there would be no obligatory spaniel in water pic but you saved it until last
Excellent. But the B&B needs to work harder on the En Suites Looe joke.
Ah - the Boris Johnson Storage Unit, or ‘Retardis’…
Wasn’t that a fridge ?
Wishful thinking old boy…
Freezer rather than fridge, even better.
Some poor fucker has just asked me for permission to propose marriage to Scarlett
Say yes, then he gets to foot all her spending!!
Except for the wedding, but I’m sure Wayne’ll be more than happy to cough for that
