My Springer Spaniel Rufus loves a trip to the beach. The huge plain of sand, pools of sea water and loads of doggy friends to make, mean he always has a great time! His and my favourite beach to go for a walk on has got to Perranporth. It’s great for dogs and is so big you can happily let them off the lead so they can have a great big run without having to worry about other beach…

  After last weeks post, I thought I’d do it again and put up another quick write up of last week’s highlights. As part of Falmouth Week the Red Arrows came to Falmouth, they did an outstanding display of their aerobatic talents over the harbour. We sat down by the sea wall, legs dangled over the edge with a bottle of beer in one hand and watched the spectacle. As we were watching we wondered, actually how close were they…

  I don’t want to jinx it but overall we’ve had a really, fantastically sunny summer so far. It was with this in mind that I decided to treat myself to a new pair of Maui Jim Coconuts Sunglasses this week. When I was making up my mind whether to get them or not, I couldn’t find many reviews so I thought I’d resolve that problem by writing one of my own; here are my first impressions:   Cases are…

  This week has got off to a bit of a lame, rainy start so I thought I would use some of my rainy day today to blog about last week and the adventures I had! I’m pretty busy at the moment and I’m sure nobody wants to read a detailed description of the whole 168 hours, so I’m just going to write a few lines and let you look at lots of photos. At the start of the week…

  It’s been a while since I last used my Outdoor Kitchen Kotlich set (read about it here) and I’ve been looking forward to cooking with it again. To make it worse, reading recipes in my Kotlich cook book, on Trish’s blog and on sites like Campfire Magazine have really been getting my appetite going! After much deliberation about what to try next, I decided that I would cook up some mussels using the Kotlich. I thought this was a…

  I’m calling it and saying summer is here. The evenings go on forever its only raining several times a week and some days are actually warm. Due to this change of season I’ve bought myself a brand spanking new (and rather posh) new barbeque. When it comes to barbeques, there is only really one brand that I associate with top of the range. That brand is Weber, so being a man who likes the finer things in life I…

  A couple weeks ago my girlfriend and I went on a lush little wander down to a very cool and lesser known Cornish beach. It’s off the beaten track and is one of my favourite beaches, especially in summer as it’s not known by tourists and locals alike. There is no car park, you simply park up on a country road and walk down what looks like someones drive until you see a small woodland path. From the top…

  This week I’ve been indulging in the most primitive of coastal pastimes, skimming stones. It’s one of those brilliant activities that everyone and their dad is a professional at. My girlfriend and I went down to a beach on the south coast when the sea was mighty flat and practiced our skills. Everybody has an opinion on the two main skimming elements: Stone choice and throwing technique. I’m definitely of the “get low to the ground and chuck it…

  In Greek Mythology, Poseidon is one of the twelve Olympian Gods (and little brother to Zeus). He is ruler of the ocean and is called the “God of the Sea”. Poseidon is usually depicted as an old, angry man with curly hair, a beard, carrying a mega pointy trident. I’ve always thought that Poseidon has a bit of an image problem. The most recent time he updated his wardrobe was a couple of thousand years BC! Looking all grumpy…
