Mermaids rings.. And and the South West coastal path..

17 Years ago today I gave my husband a book.. 'Classic Walks, Cornwall'.
Yesterday Norman and I did the Rosemullion Head and Carwinion Valley walk, 5.3 miles of very muddy slippy slide'y hills and fields.. Better late than never. Although we have unwittingly done sections of the other walks in the book over the years.

We were so surprised to find spring violets in bloom along the footpath.
Looking up through the decaying giant gunnera leaves to the skies above..

 Along the path someone had attached mermaid's rings to pieces of fishing net as a marker, reminded us of Hansel and Gretel and their bread crumb trail..

 The rock formations along the beach were astounding..

 We nervously walked through a field of cows this little beauty was very curious..
 The views were spectacular.
 The ancient forest that goes down to the water at Mawnan Smith was magical.
Mermaids rings..
So now we have completed and  officially ticked off the first of our South West Coastal walks.

*Note to self.. Buy good walking boots and Nordic hiking poles..

Once again I am distracted with angels and twinkly stars..

It must be that time of year...
I got my sweetheart to make the wooden frames which are a triumph I might add.
Real gold leaf and anything that sparkles in candlelight.
And will be available soon..
