Ticking Over

As someone who has had a stroke and also has Multiple Sclerosis, I'm well used to having to use any energy I have been allowed wisely. When I've been exceptionally busy with work then the priority is to use it for that, because it pays! Unfortunately afterwards, or if I've had a period of unrelated… Continue reading Ticking Over

Return to the Beach

The summer season ban for taking dogs on the beach has lifted now. I have been busy with running the chalet rental but I do manage to take a walk or two down there among the rocks, pools, seaweed and sand again now. The rocks in the foreground here aren't always visible, it depends on… Continue reading Return to the Beach

Offshore Mists

Yesterday morning was looking to bring a fine day. Even by 9am on a Sunday families were already occupying their little territories of the receding beach at Crackington as the tide was heading for one of its high points for the day. I had headed down there a little earlier than normal to give myself… Continue reading Offshore Mists

A beach morning

The only time I can be on the beach at Crackington Haven during the summer is on a Sunday morning when the weekly beach clean takes place.

Incoming tide at Tremoutha

Just climbing the coastpath south, just barely out of Crackington Haven, you come across Tremoutha, the next cove along. There isn't an easy access to the beach here, any faint¬† pathway has long since grown over, so access may only be relatively safely gained by skipping and scrambling around the small headland and over the… Continue reading Incoming tide at Tremoutha

WordPress Discover Editors’ Pick

Amongst all the usual newsletters and regular store emails one morning last week I had an email from Ben Huberman at WordPress.  I recognised the name but couldn't quite place why. The subject line was 'You're an Editors Pick on WordPress Discover!' I took a moment to try to process those few words. Some pinching… Continue reading WordPress Discover Editors’ Pick

Penkenna

The north edge of Crackington Haven is dominated by the headland of Penkenna. When you are down walking on the beach you can see ant-like people silhouetted against the sky sometimes, walking along the footpath on the top. From sea level it looks very precarious but, although narrowing to a point and dropping steeply and… Continue reading Penkenna
