June Walk

The weather was a little disappointing for our walk from Perranunthnoe.  In the mist we walked through fields, tracks and minor roads to Keneggy.  Once the coast was in sight the mist lifted a little and The Lizard came into view.  During the descent to join the coastal path, Rob spotted a couple of foxes in a clearing.
At Cudden Point with a wonderful view of Mount’s Bay we stopped for a picnic  and watched a bird of prey hovering close by.  The coastal path back was tortuous with plenty of ups & downs but full of colour from the wild flowers. (Mary)
The photograph was taken at Prussia Cove.

Royal Cornwall Show 2018

The WI Tea Tent was as popular as ever at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show. Teams of volunteers from around the County served tea, coffee and squash along with a selection of scones, cakes and biscuits to the hundreds of show visitors in need of a little refreshment, taking  a break in their busy day.  There was plenty of time between shifts to see all that the show had to offer – Wendie even managed to catch a moment with a Royal Visitor. Well done to everyone for their hard work and to those who entered the competitions.

Book Club May Meeting

Book Club met at Lisa’s this week to discuss the ‘Five Rivers met on a Wooded Plain’the first novel  by Barney Norris. The book, set in the Salisbury area, details how the lives of five unremarkable local people have been intertwined over a number of years in a multitude of minor incidents. With a high score averaging 8.2/10 it was enjoyed by everyone. Next month’s book is The Door by Magda Szabo.

Falmouth Trip with Camelford WI

Many thanks to Kathy for organising a memorable trip for our twinning with Camelford. We met at the Falmouth Pavillions and had coffee outside with the view of the beautiful bandstand and its flower beds which were being planted up as we watched. The head gardener gave us a short but very interesting history of the house and it’s gardens.  After a tour of the gardens with its shell grottos and an amazing variety of plants we walked down to the Maritime museum to see the Titanic Exhibition. We followed with lunch at Rick Stein’s and then a Roskilly ice cream in the Square.
All this with Falmouth sparkling in the hot sunshine. A perfect day. (Jane)

Despite the damp weather there was plenty to photograph in the gardens and grounds , and of course the cafe was a great place to dry off and have a chat afterwards.

Camera Club April

After postponing their outing on Tuesday due to the bad weather, Camera Club went to Carn Euny near Sancreed for their April meeting. With the aim of using Aperture controls to get clear foreground detail combined with a blurred background there was plenty to photograph at the iron age settlement. Next month’s meeting is 1st May at Godolphin – please see Helen if you would like to join us to photograph the bluebells.
