Day 301 Rest Day at Gwithian

Rest day

Jill’s house, Gwithian

It was a beautiful, sunny day with a clear blue sky; however, it was very windy. 

Gwithian beach and Godrevy Island
I had always intended to take a day off at Gwithian because I needed to be around St Ives on Thursday. Jill very kindly offered to host me for a second night (at least I think she did and hopefully it wasn’t that I just didn’t leave!). 

I spent a lovely morning chatting over tea and coffee, and checking out the CCTV that Jill has in her bird box. We were watching 6 very noisy Great Tit chicks being fed and getting ready to fledge.

Jill had some things to do and my friends Gareth and Helen were in the area so I walked down to Godrevy Head to meet them. I spent the afternoon on the headland, in the beach cafe and on the beach. I rather enjoyed digging a police boat, robber’s boat and police car for Matthew and Louise. I’m not convinced any of them were as good as the ones that were dug for me all those years ago!

I returned to Jill’s late afternoon and we had supper and a good chinwag. She has a fascinating family. It had been a lovely, relaxing day.

    Even little birds need their privacy…….stalking a family of tits….whatever next!?

    The police boat was workable but it was apparent it was in need of more work. Obviously Devon and Cornwall Constabulary feeling the budget cuts.
