Welcome to family, friends and visitors. Here you will find interesting (hopefully) pictures of my part of the world, news of our household and probably, long ramblings about anything that catches my interest.

Another sunny day was too good an opportunity to waste so once the morning jobs were done we drove to Mortehoe to repeat the walk down towards Rockham Bay and then around Morte Point.
As I've already shown my favourite views along this walk I thought that I'd post some different aspects of our route. Here we've just left the car park and are heading past all the holiday cottages, along the road that leads out to a couple of camp sites and finally Bull Point lighthouse.
This is where we turn right down an alley opposite the original village spring set in a wall. 
Which leads us out to the coast with its numerous paths through bracken and gorse. In the UK we are lucky that most of the country's coast is owned and managed by the National Trust which maintains the pathways for everyone to use free of charge.

The tide was out but there were still safe lagoon-like waters at Rockham Bay which is popular with families staying at the camp sites.  
As it is now the summer holidays not only were the paths busier but there were plenty of tourist boats out on the water. Here we have people watching the seals watching the people watching the seals. (There were about 6 seals in the usual place today.) 
As ever we stopped for coffee and cake at our regular bench. Because the rayburn is still on a go slow (the engineer is coming tomorrow) I haven't been able to do any baking but yesterday I saw I had written down the ingredients for a microwave cake, I think it might have been a 'mug' recipe. I used a small square silicone cake 'tin' and made a tasty chocolate slice cake in 3 minutes. A good recipe to know for emergencies. 
We ended out walk back at the village coming down the hill by the church.
At home while Peter went to town to collect our prescriptions (they are very strict and won't release them a day early) I gave the fridge a thorough clean out. It wasn't particularly messy but for once it was almost empty which made it easier to take out all the shelves for washing. Later while I sat outside with my book and some tea Peter manfully cut all the lawns as the weather is due to break tomorrow.
