    Ah but then you have to climb back up again! Lovely view Jude. How’s it going? Caught up with the weeds and the tomatoes yet? I’m having serious connectivity issues on the laptop so there may not be a walk tomorrow. The phone is a severely limited option. XX

    1. Just decide not to do it, and have a break. You’ve bloomin’ well earned one! Luxuriate in hugs while you’re about it, from a wonderfully tidy yard. I have a phenomenal son.

      1. Sue says:

        I agree with have a break! Meg’s right, you’ve earned it, Jo!!

      2. Heyjude says:

        I could do with him over here!!

      3. restlessjo says:

        Home sweet? Great to hear! Hugs for the son too. I have a part written walk. .. sob! xx

    2. Heyjude says:

      I wouldn’t climb these steps if you paid me too (and being such a skinflint I know you won’t 😉 ) I know what connectivity issues are like, but touch wood, we are OK at the moment. Of course having A here won’t help with the speed. Been weeding again today – the bindweed has been flourishing! Not so many toms left; lots of chillies! As others have said, take time out, it won’t hurt. I never get around to visiting all the linked walks to your site these days so it will give me a chance to catch up.

        Can’t do it! I’m a compulsive 🙂 🙂 It was touch and go though. Hope Alex is coping well and life as a part time nurse isn’t too arduous. Oh, but this darn weather! 🙂

        1. Heyjude says:

          He is wearing me out!! It’s alright setting a target of 6000 steps, but I also do the cooking and the cleaning and the washing and the weeding. He’s gone off alone to do a walk this morning. Hope he doesn’t overdo it.

        2. restlessjo says:

          Yes, you’ll notice a big difference to your household chores, while it’s his job just to recover. 🙂 🙂 Maybe the recovery will happen faster than you think. You can’t watch him 24/7. It’s just too exhausting. Are he and OH companionable at all?

        3. Heyjude says:

          They get on OK. Have computer stuff in common. And whisky 😉

  2. I love those tiny figures, all so many intent on their own business.

    1. Heyjude says:

      The rain was heading our way, I suspect people were considering climbing the steps to the café or going home!

  3. Sue says:

    Ah, that takes me back!!

    1. Heyjude says:

      A lovely beach. Did you ever climb those steps up to the theatre?

        1. Heyjude says:

          You’re a better (wo)man than I am, Gunga Din!!

        2. Sue says:

          That was when I was young and fit….but I nearly wrote myself off, because I went off track at some point, and ended up on a scree slope and only just managed to haul myself up rather than crashing onto the waves and rocks below…

        3. Heyjude says:

          Yikes! That would not have been nice.

        4. Sue says:

          It was a moment of horror, but I just concentrated to get myself out of it!

  4. Chillbrook says:

    One of my favourite beaches Jude. Nicely captured! 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      It is a beautiful beach, but I was puffing hard getting out of there! (And no, I didn’t climb these steps!!)

  5. beetleypete says:

    I love the way the mist blurs the top section of this shot, Jude.
    (Or is that just my eyes? 🙂 )
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not your eyes Pete. The rain was coming in quickly!

      1. Dina says:

        The rain makes it. Can’t help it. I love bad weather.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I think we all have to appreciate bad weather since we seem to get more of it than the good stuff! I don’t particularly like it too hot anyway.

    2. Pit says:

      I agree with yu: that really makes the picture!

  6. Dina says:

    That’s a wonderful beach, Jude. Is it easy accessible?
    I can hear/read you are going through hough times. Hope eveyrthing is sorting itself out. Eventually. And to the best.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There is a large car park close by, a short walk to the beach and some steps down, not too many and much easier than some of the beach access routes in Cornwall. The beach is at a bit of a slope with soft sand so it pulls on the calves somewhat. But the water here is so aqua it is very beautiful. Thanks for the thoughts Dina. The boy is doing well and enjoying his mother’s cooking!

      1. Dina says:

        I’m very glad to read the good news, Jude. Wishing him a good appetite and a speedy recovery!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Eating me out of house and home Dina! He’ll soon put that weight back on. Thanks for the wishes 🙂

  7. Elizabeth says:

    I was glad for the title. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have even noticed the steps!

  8. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Minack has long been on my to visit list, but if there’s steps . . .

    1. Heyjude says:

      Not the only route. You can drive up to the theatre and park there. We did it that way last year.

I like a like, but I love a chat
