SUMMERS PAST AND GONE.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it.
This picture was taken during a bike ride to Cornwall and is of Fistral Beach at Newquay. This beach is probably the surf centre of Cornwall.
Another beach in Cornwall (Below), again taken during a bike ride this time of the famous resort of Perranporth. Click on it to see just how popular it really is
Below, again of Perranporth beach, with the Millenium Sundial in the foreground,this sundial points across the bay to Gull Rocks.
Much nearer to home (below) taken from the steps of the "Landmark Theatre" Cafe, in Ilfracombe, N Devon.
The shot below was taken just last sunday, we tried to capture the mist as it rose over the cliffs overlooking "Lynmouth", it hung there all day refusing to either thicken or disperse.
This shot captures the lovely little secluded beach at "Lee bay" nr "Ilfracombe", N Devon. The labrador was dieing to leap in after sticks his lady owner was throwing but for ages lacked the courage, eventually "Taking the plunge" after what seemed ages.
One here for "Ex Shammy", this shot of "Combe Martin" (Shammick) was taken from the Tea garden of the "Sandy Cove" hotel.One of the bungalows in the centre of the picture was once owned by her family. The 2nd large hill on the left is called "Hangmans hill" Sue and I climbed this a few weeks ago and will be the subject of a Winter blog.
This shot (below) if I remember rightly was taken from the road leading toward "Porlock" again in dear old Devon.
So i hope that has given you a bit of a "Summer Feeling", with some lovely places to visit here in the West country. We certainly feel very privileged to be able to spend our summers in this lovely area.
Now to come back to earth with a bump, this Video was taken just TWO weeks ago on the day we went to "Hartland Quay", it was taken right by the side of the car in "Westward Ho", blimey what a difference.
Joke of the day.
A chicken farmer went to a local bar... He sat next to a woman and ordered a glass of champagne.
The woman perks up and says, 'How about that? I just ordered a glass of champagne, too!'
'What a coincidence,' the farmer says, 'This is a special day for me, and I too am celebrating.'
'This is a special day for me too, I'm also celebrating!' says the woman.
'What a coincidence,' says the man.
As they clinked glasses, the farmer asked, 'What are you celebrating?'
'My husband and I have been trying to have a child, and today my gynaecologist told me that I'm pregnant!'
'What a coincidence,' says the man. 'I'm a chicken farmer and for years all my hens were infertile, but today they're finally laying fertilized eggs.'
'That's great!' says the woman, 'How did your chickens become fertile?'
'I used a different cock,' he replied.
The woman smiled and said,
'What a coincidence...'
