 Portreath beach pebble ...Isabel gave it to me to take home        

I was sitting on the beach admiring the pebbles and the local beauties, and then I noticed one of them giving me a kind of sideways look ...

 ... and I heard this little voice say ...

"Take me home with you"

So I did, and here we are

(the pebble, that is !!)

Buoy meets girl ... Portreath !


Good to meet you, Koda ... we'll feel safer in the sea at Gwithian now!!

These two pictures are of Koda, an 80kg Newfoundland youngster we met at the local corn-stores on June 11. He is very affectionate, and extremely strong. We are told he is on stand-by at St Ives Bay in case the lifeboat's engine fails ... Koda (webbed feet and a powerful breast stroke) can tow all that tonnage to safety!!

The 'Blue Girl' ... who she was, or what she was meditating on we shall never know ... but there she was on the beach at Chapel Porth standing reflecting on, and in, the rock pool
