January Sunshine

St. Michael's Mount, Marazion

My new ecological calendar is telling me that today is a day to forage for food and build up fat reserves for winter.

This message doesn’t seem to have reached Penzance, it is definitely spring here. My crocuses are poking out of the soil in and it is warm and beautiful outside. I have spent the afternoon sunbathing at the beach!

What Penzance lacks in economic prosperity, it more than makes up for in proximity to the beach. When the sun is shining I fall in love with my coastal town all over again. The coastal path between Marazion and Penzance was full of people gently wandering and looking shocked to be outside without rain coats and snow hats.

This fantastic January sunshine has left Penzance smiling. I hope everyone else has found a sunny spot to enjoy this lovely high pressure system.

Happy New Year xx


Guerilla Beach Art at Marazion

A lovely collection of limpet shells

I’m quite a fan of guerilla knitting, and think that guerilla gardening is a fab idea; so I was most excited to discover guerilla beach art at Marazion!

Someone has spent quite a while collecting shells, rocks and seaweed to create this amazing mosaic. I don’t know who the creator is and wonder if it has been a team effort but I definitely think that they deserve some celebration and recognition!

I’m quite intrigued about how long the mosaic will last. I hope that it will get bigger and bigger as more people add in their own little section creating a little piece of community art on the beach.

To the artist and shell collector – Thank you!!
