 Not a bad morning

The Tulips in the wall at Oamaru Barn have managed to flower despite all the bad weather 
and more of the Narcissi are flowering 

Primulas as well 
This Small Tortoiseshell  Butterfly plopped onto the grass in front of me - sadly managed one shot before it went off again. Rather cold for it. Then the rain arrived, so no dog walk this afternoon

Penlee Lifeboat Ivan Ellen on exercise with SAR helicopter - take from a very cold and windy Longrock

Scillonian III passing the Penlee Lifeboat on exercise with a SAR helicopter


Early morning walk again - just cloudy and cool 
Home they came to say goodbye to our visitors 
Later I went down to Lidl and heard a a massive crash as I walked into the store - when I got back to the car I saw this - they had been emptying one of the bottle banks - oops !
Gry Maritha on her way back to Penzance 
RNLI Penlee Lifeboat on the way out to meet a SAR helicopter for an exercise - hadn't got time to go further round towards Mousehole 
So I stopped off at Longrock - it was extremely cold and windy 
As you can see ! 

Scillonian III heading out to allow Gry Maritha onto Lighthouse Pier to unload 

A couple of Kite surfers enjoying the wind
Getting further away but you can see the winchman on the way down 
Gry Maritha unloading on Lighthouse Pier 
Got back into the car as my hands were seizing up - took this through the windscreen  - good to see the flags flying on The Mount to indicate they are open
Quick walkies up the hill before the expected rain arrived 
You can see the rain coming down over the hills behind The Mount

 Dull & cold start to the day

We then set off for Falmouth to buy a new carpet for the downstairs lounge - sadly as we arrived we realised that Tilly had had anaccident in the back of the car - fortuntely we managed to clear it up and go into Trago for the carpet where by coincidence we bumped into the carpet fitter so all was done easily. Sadly we then had to come straight home as we were worried that Tilly was going to repeat her problem.
The tanker RFA Tiderace she was constructed in South Korea by commercial builders, but is being brought to a Naval dockyard in Falmouth where it will be fitted with weapons, armour, and other modifications to make it ready to accompany Britain's most powerful warships in the field 

I set off up the hill with the dogs
Tilly seems to have recovered at the moment

Tuesday - posted Wednesday

 Just a few from Tuesday - sorry rather late, but we have visitors again
Glorious morning, but still chilly in the wind

Sea King on navigator training 
 Wooster making sure Jim's lines are straight
Afternoon walkies - Still haven't been able to find out what this is, but it looks exotic, but hasn't been frosted like so many other plants 

Bite Adventures zooming across the bay - then back again
Out for a spot of night netting
Little Egret and Redshank
