Thousands of people have come down to Cornwall for their summer holidays, making for very busy roads and crowded beaches, so I chose quiet scenery for my day out last Friday, starting with a lovely woodland/river walk on the Lanhydrock Estate.
Watch out for the tree roots which are ready to trip the unwary.
After this walk - LUNCH, but we were so hungry we had cleared our plates before I remembered to take any photos. Suffice it to say it was Great!
Then I drove up onto Bodmin Moor with its almost empty lanes, a few ponies and cattle and stunning scenery, eventually arriving at the Colliford Reservoir, where I set up my chair on the grassy verges of the lake and read my book while Zac enjoyed the freedom to explore and dip in and out of the water.
Apologies for the surfeit of 'Zac' photos but he enjoyed the day as much as I did - especially all that water. I took home a very wet, very tired but very happy dog.
Oh, I joined a local art group this week and although I was rather nervous, I had a go - and painted this - it is far from being good, but it's surprising how much better a painting looks when it;s been cropped and framed. Such a pity that I managed to get my reflection in the glass!!!! Doh!
