Simon, Vikki and the kiddies are heading home today, and i had promised them a cake.

Having pulled a new recipe from google, I produced a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, sprinkles and white chocolate drops.


It looked good, but not having made it before I was very wary that it would taste OK.



We met everyone, and headed to the beach for a game of boules, and then made our way back to watch Mo Farrah win his race.  The kids got very excited and decided to Usain Bolt him!



A quick walk around the harbour, and some timed shots, before we said our goodbyes until next time.


I think the next few weeks are going to be very quiet without all these visitors.

Roll on Bank Holiday weekend, and the next visit from Jamie and Phill. Can’t wait.

  1. Well that cake looks really good - did it taste just as good?

    It's always sad to say goodbye to visitors and it always makes our house very quiet when they have left. I find myself at a bit of a loose end after they first leave!

  2. Thank you for stopping by... Yummy looking cake!

  3. Silus already 'thinks' he's boss x

  4. Looks like you have been having a great summer apart from one campsite! I love your photos of the mines at Botallack, I have always wanted to visit there. Also you holiday in North Devon looks interesting, an area I don't know.

  5. Hi Jo

    Thanks for popping by and commenting over at my card blog.

    I'm as guilty as you about not coming onto blogger to check up on others' blogs and even to do my own posts!

    Must get back into the habit instead of always being on Facebook!
