and then one of the visitors ...
After lunch (a very delicious roast and dessert for less than £10) we came home and collected Hamish then went for a walk around the harbour and down to the beach before making our way back to the cars at the Arms. Then it was big hugs and goodbyes from us all and I hope they have a lovely time visiting places in our beautiful county.

One of the committee members of Portreath Harbour Association has been busy organising a launch of the Boat Watch scheme for Portreath. At midday today we had a police van arrive and they set up a stand with all the details we needed for joining plus outboard covers, markers and padlocks that we could buy. There was a steady flow of members and locals arriving and signing up to the scheme as boats are often targeted by thieves who want to earn a quick buck by selling stolen outboards and other fittings. It was all very interesting and we are now fully signed up members.

The last time I photographed the development in Portreath was at the beginning of February so I wandered along today and took a couple of shots to show how it's progressing. They've built a fence at the back now so I had to take them through the fencing at the front. One house is well on in construction and the one next to it is not so far behind ...

The tide was in and I just happened to look out of the window just as a little head popped out of the water! My first thought was that one of the local lads was swimming but then I realised it was a seal! He kept disappearing but then bobbed up and down again having a good look around before finally swimming out to sea.
