Hello Dear Reader,
The weather has been wonderful today and I made sure we caught the last of the evening sun. We live eight miles north of the coast so it was a quick drive to Looe. People were still on the beach when we arrived, the part time fire fighters were practising their drill, the life boat was out and about honing their skills, people were jogging and swimming and many people were walking their dogs.
Here's the view from the end of the pier back towards the beach.
Here's the view from the pier to Rame Head.
The beach at low tide. No dogs allowed on the beach.........but we wanted Dolly to paddle in the sea.
A Cornish street! People live above this.
View from Looe bridge out towards the mouth of the harbour.
Retained fire fighter practising and checking equipment. The fire engine is so small to get around the narrow streets and lane. The four wheeled drive vehicle is for the other work they do such as cliff rescue.
I love the thought of paying the ferryman to take me from one side of the river to the other!
The mouth of the harbour and the lifeboat slipway.
Hannafore Beach! Hannafore is the 'posh' part of Looe. Massive houses, posh hotels BUT! plenty of free parking, a beach at low tide and you can take your dogs on this one! Dolly had her first sniff of the sea and took me where she wanted to go. She's such a nosey puppy and loved the shoreline.
Here's the view of all of Looe that I took at the end of our walk as we turned the corner and saw Looe again. I love these summer evenings and that it stays light until nine and that it was warm enough to walk around in a t-shirt. I consider myself so blessed to have such treasures on my doorstep. Thanks Dearly Beloved for dragging me out tonight, sometimes I just want to see the sea.Thanks for all the concerns about my backache......it helps if I keep moving and seems to only hurt now if I have to sit down at all.
Love Froogs xxxxxxxx
