Cornwall, Nepal and Knitting.

Standard

imageAt last WIFI again! How I’ve missed it. Sorry to miss Wordsmith Wednesday but I will get back to normal as soon as I can. Not sure what “normal” is as we travel around Devon and Cornwall. The scenery is stunning, the weather OK and the company not bad! Hubs, Benji and I have walked quite a bit of the Cornish Coastal path. Well Hubs and Benji have walked the most, whilst I’ve walked some of the shops! The path is well way marked and well maintained as well as well used.

We are currently staying near to Tintagel Cornwall. Tintagel is associated with the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Mysterious history indeed which all shops milk to the extreme. Still it’s all good fun.

Because of of no WIFI I have been “forced” to read real books and try to finish my knitting. Actually this was a real problem as the knitting pattern that I am following was on the Internet. I am still Knitting for Nepal and had started a pair of fingerless mittens to go with the scarf already completed. I have been using http://www.ravelry.com and a pattern of “knits by britt”.An uber easy pattern which I MAY finish tonight. I may then knit a “Beany” hat to make a trio of items. Then what??

A Hidden Gem

A Hidden Gem

Today we stumbled across a hidden gem. It was “The Hidden Hut” a beach cafe with a difference. It is situated on National Trust land above Porthcurnick Beach, Roseland Peninsula, South Coast Cornwall. I say stumbled because we had just come along the Coastal Path in intense heat and really needed a nice break. What a joy! Great food, service and location.
Whilst we were there they were filming a celebrity chef for a BBC programme Saturday Bites going out in September.The chef was a guy called Tom Kerridge. He was cooking in the outdoor kitchen and walking along the Coastal Path -although
he didn’t walk very far.Too hot.
