Home produce

10 litres of elderflower champagne on the go and the allotment about to bear it's first fruit (a single blackcurrant).

Meanwhile the tremendous snowfall of last winter in the Pyrenees is starting to melt and there are disastrous floods on the rivers which take the snowmelt away from the mountains.

A walk on the moor with Susie today and one with Ruby yesterday in the Dartington Estate...mostly talking and taking photos.

Concrete pumped and tamped

An hour trip to Brixham in the afternoon, but no fish...only flowers.

Sea food

Another week of exceptional early June weather here in Devon and so a trip to the beach was in order. Mattiscombe was sheltered from the wind, so the girls sunbathed whilst Jasper and I walked to Lannacombe and back in search of a fishing spot.  The tide was nearly in and we didn't find a spot. Eventually we had to scramble to safety to avoid wet feet. Friends arrived and after a barbeque, as the sun set, I threw out a spinner and caught 4 mackerel, 2 sea bass and a couple of baby cod (I think) which I put back.
