Walking The Lizard – Church Cove to Cadgwith

Walking The Lizard – Church Cove to Cadgwith

 

If you’ve ever visited Cornwall, UK you may know that ‘The Lizard’ is the name of the peninsula in southern Cornwall, UK, with Lizard Point being near the most southernly point of the British mainland.  Whilst down there over Easter, we did some beautiful walking Jon and I, along with Jon’s mum, dad and their dog, Gordon and of course our two furry friends, Rosie and Millie.  We filled our trusty backpacks with a few bits and bobs, including some lovely freshly made Cornish Pasties and headed out for a good ramble.

A Slow Meander to York – Part 1 – A Bumpy Start

A Slow Meander to York – Part 1 – A Bumpy Start

Since selling up and moving onto our boat October 2017, it seemed to take quite a while to get ourselves settled in, which meant it took quite a while before going out  for a cruise, although we did have our first Winter on the boat, survived, loved it and were toasty warm.  Jon was also busy doing quite a bit of maintenance work on the boat which included booking her in to dry dock to get her bottom blacked – sounds painful, I know, but it’s just something that needs doing every few years, consisting of the boat being out of the water in order for us to check the hull, do any repairs or welding jobs and re-paint.  We were booked in for the end of July 2018, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to spend early July cruising up the Selby Canal and the River Ouse towards York and maybe beyond and as our neighbours were on their way to Knottingley to have their bottom blacked, we thought we’d join them for the first part of our slow meander.

The first leg of the journey would be a days leisurely cruise from Rotherham to The New Junction Canal just past Barnby Dun, where we’d be mooring for that evening, but it was to be a disappointing start for us. Continue reading “A Slow Meander to York – Part 1 – A Bumpy Start”

A Good Excuse to go back to Canada!

A Good Excuse to go back to Canada!

Going to Whistler last year, was supposed to be a one off ‘special’ snowboarding trip for us and although we had a great time, we certainly didn’t think we’d be going again soon as it was a little on the expensive side, but of course it was fabulous and it left us feeling that we’d just love to see a lot more of that beautiful country, so of course we would have to add more of Canada to our never ending travel wish list or so we thought..

Living the Dream

Living the Dream

There comes a time when you turn around and your children choose not to hold your hand when crossing the road anymore, they are a little more independent every day, they begin to tackle their own problems, you find out they had a cold and you didn’t even know about it, but they got healthy again without you fussing around them with hot honey and lemon drinks, hot water bottles & without those ‘mummy’ cuddles.   You turn around and they’ve grown up.
