We are still managing to have our Friday afternoon outings and this week we popped up to the north coast and parked up above Porthtowan for a few hours. It was a glorious afternoon and so bright Im afraid all my photos are a bit over exposed.We did go for a little walk but it was so hot with no real breeze that it was quite unpleasant wandering along (I am not a sunshine person!) but the flowers were wonderful.
Thrift, in great swathes along the path and hanging on in great clumps to the crumbling edges of the cliffs......
.....deep yellow gorse smelling of hot coconut or what I think baked peaches......bees emerging, pollen coated, satisfied.
We wandered back to the car enjoying every step even though we were baking slowly in the sun. A picnic lunch on the grass of the cliff edge (not to0 near the edge) then sat back and read our books, well in my case my wonderful new edition of Where Women Create a stunning magazine from America.
