Yesterday it rained most of the day. We had a very brief walk around St Just and then went off too a couple of mining things. The first was Levant steam engine, owned by the NT. Like most steam things, it was a bit dull, made worst by the fact that the engine broke down last Wednesday so we couldnt see it steaming. The location was spectacular though.
The second place was Geevor tin mines. This was fascinating. It was a more modern mine with a lot of the equipment still there. They even had all the locker rooms pretty much left as they were when they closed, complete with clothes.
There was also a short underground tour which we enjoyed as I do find big holes in the ground interesting for some reason!
This morning the sun is shining and I'm watching the early surfers whilst I drink my tea.
Not quite so sunny today, in fact its chucking it down.
Sue and i have been married one year today! We are spending it in a static caravan near St Ives. This is a picture of the beach directly outside the caravan. The sun is shining, we've been body boarding this morning and a walk along the beach this afternoon. Tonight we are having champagne and fish and chips over looking the beach. Over all, i think we're pretty lucky.
