Around Lanreath, Cornwall, UK

Bad traffic on the main road....

Geese on the pond at Polventon Cottage...

Sidiki, up to no good as usual....

Pat the second watching his flock and making sure we have some yummy fresh eggs for breakfast......


Landy! What a sorry site. One day girl I'll be able to give you the TLC you deserve. Landy (1962, Series IIa, 88", ex-military desert rat) was my first car, bought by me before I even had my driving test. She served me well through my undergrad and graduate school and I love her dearly. 

...and now she spends her day as a watching post for the cats....

So I officially love my new camera. Can you see the horse-fly in there? So many daffodils here, spring has sprung! 

Cows in the field behind us.

Out for a walk down to the village of Lanreath. Led on by Sid, Pod and Dylan (Left to Right).

The local - the Punchbowl Inn, excellently situated right next to the church....

Old marker on one of the back roads, showing the way to Liskeard, Looe and Lostwithiel.

What wonderful, wonderful photos, bringing back all sorts of memories of our time in the UK! I love too, the photo of you and Lucy Abigail! How fortunate she is to have you for an auntie. We are now back from southeast Asia--gradually catching up. What a huge world we have!

Wow, it's so pretty there. I love Landy too. And all the dogs. And your beautiful niece.
