    How many films is just enough for a week in Cornwall?

    (BTW Mrs R this morning said "You're not going to take ALL this photography stuff are you?"... I said nothing! :D )

    Packing... now there's a plan! Bit of a panic just now as the large suitcase wouldn't open, zip stuck. OK for now, thankfully. Still planning to get away at 10... um, 10-ish, um, maybe half eleven...

    We're on the road! 4 hours or so. Mild panic this morning when I thought I'd run out of provia. Still, at my rate, my one remaining sheet should be ample :D

    Currently imbibing a refreshing flagon of San Miguel in the Merrymoor Inn in Mawgan Porth. Rain lashing against the windows and a raging sea crashing into the coast, very Poldarkian.:D

    Where abouts might you be going Sunday morning? Just in case I happen to be nearby I know not to hang around too long.

    Something has just occured to me... (Actually, Mrs Nod reminded me of it!)

    The Devon County Show is on at the end of next week so traffic around the motorway junctions near Exeter WILL be bad, as will the A30 interchanges. This will probably be on the Saturday evening and Sunday so be prepared for a wait if you're heading home at that time.

    So, this evening there was a plan to go out for sunset, but it was pouring with rain so we didn't. Then, it cleared a bit, but obviously wasn't going to be anything other than just a bright patch in the sky... except a clear strip appeared below the clods, then wedges of sun slowly dropped out of the cloud towards the horizon, passing through another narrow band of cloud, lighting up the underside of the main clouds before slowly disappearing, lingering before the final sliver vanished...:):(:D

    It was a very nice sunset indeed. For me the light on the fairly impressive waves made it even nicer. Shame we had to run out so quickly and I didnt have time to set up my large format gear but the Voigtlander should produce some nice shots, hopefully. :)

    Excellent day yesterday, mooched around St Ives during the day and the weather was very nice. The highlight was the 4 pronged gull attack on Mrs Snaps blackcurrent and vanilla flavoured ice cream. Sneaky b*ggers swept in from out of the sun and knocked it from her hand.
    We went to Godrevy for a sunset but it petered out before becoming anything special. Still a wonderful spot though and with some big waves crashing in worthy of a shot or two, definitely going to go back.
    Off to the Eden project today.

    Sounds like you're all having a good time down there. Gutted I couldn't make this one but I'll hopefully be able to make the next! Fingers' crossed for better weather too.

    Typical! You only mentioned my calamity and not the others.....:mad:

    Nick dropping a loaded dark slide into the sea!

    Carl slipping on the platform and nearly landing on the train tracks!

    Woodsy's bag being hit by a wave!

    Not to mention the 4 of us (me, @nikki_s , @Carl Hall and @RaglanSurf ) that had the stones to head out for a sunrise... which was awesome.

    Blimey, are you lot safe to be out on your own? It's only Monday and already it's reading something akin to a story-board from a Laurel and Hardy film! ;) Just try to survive the week so we can enjoy the photographs when you get back! :D

    Banter aside, I hope The Eden Project was good, it's on my list to visit if I ever get time to go down Cornwall way. (y)

    And the weather forecast for the rest of the Week, Heavy Showers.

    Sorry Lads and Lasses.
