Most weekends we go for a good stomp. Recently we have been walking between our house in Gooseham and the hamlet of Woolley. Its a really lovely walk through the valley.
Whilst on holiday in Pembrokeshire last summer we went on one of our children’s favorite walks down to Aber Bach beach. One of the reasons they love it is the various sculptures and animals made from wood and flotsam that line the first part of the walk. They are created by a couple whose garden boarders the footpath and they always make us smile, they also have ones to take away and share.
Yesterday we had a visitor in our garden. A female fox who seemed to have no fear whatsoever. Where we live in Cornwall there is plenty of wildlife around but we seldom catch a glimpse of a fox. Normally they are very shy and would disappear at the smell let alone sight of a human. This female was very bold, she clearly has a litter and must be very hungry to be scavenging in broad daylight. She spent about 10 minutes with me and the boys looking for scraps to eat and as you can see, having a very close look at us.
Although Sunday’s weather was a bit wet, we decided that a walk was still in order. The coastline round here is stunning whatever the weather (apart from when it’s foggy and you can’t see it). We often do a short circuit which takes us out from Morwenstow church , past Hawker’s hut and then follows the path back along Tidna chute. It also has the advantage of starting and finishing at the Bush Inn.
