Busy Day

We had to go to Helston today as it was my annual contact lens check-up and as it was such lovely weather we decided to splash out and have lunch at the Ship Inn at Porthleven.

Looking out to sea from the pub ...

The pinch ...

It's situated right up high above the harbour and we sat outside watching a family who were fishing and being watched by a hungry seagull who I think quite fancied our prawn sandwiches. They were not cheap at £6.45 a round but they came with a full salad and they were gorgeous!

Parked by the edge ...

Looking back at Porthleven harbour ...

This afternoon we'd arranged with our friend Jo to meet at B&Q as we needed to borrow the boot of her car for our new loo! The MX-5 is great for everyday use - Tesco trips fill the boot and going to the tip isn't a problem - but when we need to buy large items I'm afraid the bootrack sometimes says NO! The loo and bathroom are next on the list of 'jobs to do' as the kitchen is just about finished and as it was discount day today we were grateful to Jo for helping us out. It is now sitting in our living room - wonder how long it will be before it makes it upstairs!

Mike has also been busy this afternoon fixing some netting on our bird table. We have a big problem with crows here in Portreath and I like to feed the birds in our small garden. We found the netting on the beach the other evening when walking Hamish and it is now attached to the table so that all the small birds can get through.

One side is left unattached at the bottom but has a piece of wood on it to weigh it down and we can lift it to put the food in. Perfect!

Great idea for the bird table! We are plagued by crows!
