On Monday we had a lucky escape as Hurricane Ophelia passed us by.



 In the days leading up to last Monday, everyone in the South West Peninsula of England and along the the South West of Ireland, had been carefully studying the projected track of the Atlantic Hurricane Ophelia as it raced towards us.

In the event it hit Ireland with its full force and we, in Plymouth,  experienced no more than a normal autumnal storm.

But our thoughts are  with the people of Ireland, where three people died as a result of the storm, thousands of homes are without power, and damage to property will amount to millions of Euros.

The Furry Forager


 

Squirrels don't hibernate, but in Autumn they gather as much food as they can which they hide in their 'food stores', from which they can retrieve it during times of scarcity during the long winter.

No matter what ...

The weather.
 The Season of the year.
The Hour the of day or night.
There is always some vessel moving in Plymouth Sound.

Cornish Pasties

Cornwall's gift to the world of fine dining.













It was said that The Devil would never dare to cross the River Tamar into Cornwall for fear of ending up as a filling in a Cornish Pasty.


Judging from this list of fillings his decision was probably correct.
