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??

Bos Castle Cornwall

Today was sunny,hot and positively tropical. Hubs decided to walk along the Coastal Path to Bos Castle and I drove in Damnvan1 to meet him for lunch. I guess I got the better deal.
Bos Castle is a picturesque Cornish village with a natural harbour and a medieval past. Many of you may remember the flood of ten years ago which rushed through the steep sided valley,engulfing the village within minutes. It is good to see it today beautifully restored to its former self. All that I noticed was flood markers at the TOP of the cottages
No crafts today. Most of the so called craft shops appear to be full of fairies, wizards and crystals. Not my cup of tea but I guess it’s a modern nod to the areas medieval past. The legend of King Arthur is said to have originated in this area.
Moving on tomorrow to Newquay so not sure if I will have Internet. Watch this space.
