Hello there,

Just went I thought we were full to the brim we acquire a few more animals for the petting corner!  Today Judith has come home from shopping with some new black chickens.  I am not sure of the exact breed but have been told they are very pretty!  We will take some pictures as soon as they have settled in.

Rosie and Jim no longer look like little lambs anymore.  They are in the front paddock with the donkeys and Alice the Shetland.  They still act very much like puppies though and will come when you call them.  If you are visiting then don’t forget to give Declan plenty of attention too…he may be a little bit older, but he was also bottle fed so loves the human attention.  Wilma and Betty are slightly more shy.

I am sure you have seen on the news and experienced the monsoon season that seems to be the UK summer.  Depsite the weather warnings that have been issued for the South West it really hasn’t been that bad – and we are not just saying that!  We have had lots of rain, don’t get me wrong, but it seems to come in bursts and over night.  In fact as I type this I would say that it is very hot and the sun is breaking through.  On Sunday night we actually had our tea on the beach, after I got quite sunburnt in the day (lesson learnt!), I am pictured walking along Pentewan Sands.
Cornwall will now start to get quite busy, the local schools break up this week and lots of people are entering holiday season, which means there is loads happening right on our door step.  In a few weeks the Charlestown Regatta will take place from the 28th July to 3rd August with lots of live entertainment, music and fun to be had by the family.  Slightly later in the month is the highly acclaimed Fowey Regatta taking place 19th to 25th August.  The Red Arrows display across the harbour really is worth seeing.

In you fancy a little a bit of culture why not visit one of the many outdoor theatres that spring up in Cornwall throughout the summer.  One of our favourites is the Miracle Theatre Company – they are hugely enteraining and are performing at The Lost Gardens of Heligan on 1st August.  Or you could venture further afield to the highly popular Minack Theatre, which is worth  visit in the day time to admire the views or to see a show in the evening.
