HERE WE GO ROUND THE ROUNDABOUT
For #joinindailyspecifics - okay this is only a mini roundabout, in St.Austell, but Section 185 of the UK's Highway Code still applies:

When reaching a roundabout you should:
Always give priority to the traffic coming from the right, unless you have been directed otherwise by signs, road markings or traffic lights

Check if the road markings allow you to proceed without giving way (always look right before joining just in case)

Watch out for other road users on the roundabout

Check the traffic has moved off in front of you before you proceed to enter the roundabout

Oh, and don't forget we drive on the left in the UK!

AN ENGLISH ROBIN
For #joinindailyspecifics: We often get one or two robins in our garden, such friendly birds. When I'm pottering about they sometimes seem to follow me around. I kid myself that they are special friends who are visiting from, well who knows where. I guess though, that they are only after any insects I might turn over with my spade or hoe - but who really knows.

D IS FOR DANGER
For #joinindailyspecifics: Sometimes, perhaps, it's best to do what we are told, but there again:

What matters it, that, all around,
Danger, and guilt, and darkness lie,
If but within our bosom's bound
We hold a bright, untroubled sky,
Warm with ten thousand mingled rays
Of suns that know no winter days?

~Emily Bronte

COTTAGES IN CHARLESTOWN
Following on from yesterday's post these old cottages overlook the harbour at Charlestown.

TALL SHIPS AT CHARLESTOWN
A couple of tall ships at Charlestown earlier this year. This is where some of the scenes for the Poldark television series were filmed.

I remember visiting Charlestown very early on the first day of the new millennium. It was quite misty, or perhaps foggy. As we looked back at the village from a far harbour wall it was more like we had stepped back in time as opposed to seeing a new millennium.

IT CAN BE GRIM WHEN YOUR HAIR HAS A BAD DAY
This is part of what's left of an old sea wall at Pentewan. It had been a rough night and the seaweed had taken flight, aided by the wind and waves.

WALKING THE COASTAL PATH
Walking west from Trenarren on Cornwall's south coast. Despite the lack of leaves on the trees there are always interesting views from the South West Coast Path. The path, as I have mentioned previously, stretches some 630 miles (1,014 km) - so lots to walk!

LOST IN A SWAMP OF RED
I hope the lone gentleman, to the right of the photo, likes Coca-Cola as there doesn't appear to be an alternative! Photo snapped by the harbour in Puerto de la Cruz, Teneriffe, Canary Islands.

THE KEYS TO MY CASTLE
Okay, the title of the post is a bit of a porky, but many years ago I bought these keys from an old farmer at a car boot sale. Ever since I have been searching for the castle doors that they will unlock. Who knows, one day I may find the castle and will perhaps rescue a damsel in distress or something similar. I'll be the hero riding on my white stallion ... of course, that's only if my wife doesn't object!
