A balmy day with an awful lot of domestic admin is not the greatest inspiration for a blog but our evening dog walk was as refreshing as a glass of ice cold lemonade.
Another positive of the day was confirmation of my place on the Advanced Blog writing course and bloggers reunion in Spitalfields in October. A good chance to huddle with other writers.
Spitalfields was in my heart long before it became trendy, my student days were spent visiting friends in squats or squalid shared houses there. The bones of which are still standing but now they are million pound homes and offices.
The area retains a quirky irreverent attitude even with an influx of money and cleanliness.
Here is a younger Hugo finding his own version of a squat a few years ago.
Enough of Spitalfields and October. A Cornwall evening in June was the true topic of this blog.
At 9 am the dogs and I were in this exact spot but we were chased away by the assiduous attention of Horse Flies. By 9pm we could actually stand still and enjoy the view. We had a good old trudge around the nature reserve with doggy and human friends. A bug posed on Cow Parsley.
And I felt the need to turn a beautiful but non spectacular sundowner into a poster.
Have a great weekend when it arrives.
