A Fish and Chip Lunch and a Walk

An account of my Friday in Cornwall.

INTRODUCTION

I am a bit behind with blogging about my stay in Cornwall because of the time it takes to edit the photos and the fact that I had a long day out yesterday – an excursion to Penzance about which there will be much more later. 

THE LUNCH

Ahoy Fish and Chips, a mobile fish and chip shop, call at Fort Picklecombe for Friday lunch time. We bought lunch from them – cod for my parents and a beefburger for me, all with chips. The chips were of excellent quality, and the pricing was very reasonable.

THE WALK

Having walked to Kingsand and Cawsand the previous day I walked the other way this time, climbing up quite high above the sea. Here, barring a few preserved for the next and final section of this post are the pictures I took while out on this walk…

FOCUS ON THE LIGHTHOUSE

The lighthouse which is visible from my parents new home features in a number of pictures that I have taken. I open this section with a mini challenge that I titled “Framed” – do you have a picture where there is a natural framework for the centrepiece of the photo? If you create a post containing the picture, and provide details in the comments, and I am impressed I will reblog you. Here is my starter…

Trees in Transistion IX

The latest addition to my “Trees in Transistion” series.

INTRODUCTION

It has been a few days since I did one of these posts. While plenty of the trees have shed most or all of their leaves some are still quite green.

THE TREES

I have two sets of tree pictures to share, the second of which were taken only yesterday evening.

The ones from yesterday evening:

Trees in Transistion VIII

An addition to my “Trees in Transistion” series

INTRODUCTION

The pictures that appear in this post were taken yesterday morning while I walked from my flat to the Farmer’s Arms, Knight’s Hill for an NAS West Norfolk coffee morning.

THE TREES

Some of these pics have spots on them – it was raining, and a few drops got on the camera lens at times:

 

Trees In Transistion VII

The latest addition to my “Trees in Transistion” series.

INTRODUCTION

Later on today I hope to have time to put up a few more posts, but for the moment just to keep things coming here is the latest installment in my “Trees in Transistion” series. 

THE TREES’ TALE

The heading for this section is a nod to Richard Dawkins’ “The Ancestor’s Tale”. These pictures do feature some trees not previously featured, and to borrow from another famous writer I hope that “age doth not wither nor custom stale my infinite variety”…

Trees in Transistion V

The fifth installment in “Trees in Transistion”.

INTRODUCTION

This post will have a longer preamble than is usual for posts in this series because I have not posted much (except a reblog of an excellent post by Anna) in recent days. On Tuesday and today I have been busy at work, while yesterday I was in Norwich running a stall at a conference organised by ASD Helping Hands, titled “Ageing with Autism”. This means that the tree pics you see in this post are a little bit out of date. I hope to have time for some serious posting over the weekend. For the moment, welcome to the fifth installment in my series “Trees in Transistion”.

TREES TO THE FORE

Trees in Transistion III

More on trees in transistion…

INTRODUCTION

Both my original “Trees in Transistion” and the post I put up yesterday morning, “Trees in Transistion II” have proved popular, and I have some more tree pictures for you today.

THE TREES SPEAK

These pictures were taken yesterday evening, and the light was fading as time passed. I did not use the flash for any of these pictures.
