Perranporth Beach

Here we are on the glorious wide beach at Perranporth. Damp packed sand, surf rolling in. So exciting for a small dog but the waves rush at you so fast that it's scary.
Budleigh's not a water dog.

Careful, Budleigh. Don't even go near to this Portuguese Man of War. Hundreds have been washed up along the Cornish coast.
Yes, we know it's dead but it's best to be cautious.

There are dogs running everywhere. Some people have more than one!
Sometimes, though, they don't appreciate being disturbed while they change after swimming.

Here's a friendly spaniel with a special ball on a loop of rope. Lucky him. It looks even more interesting than Budleigh's new tennis ball. Let's see if they'll play together.

The ball goes flying. Budleigh's a fast runner - really fast - but the spaniel gets there first.

Never mind, there'll be other visits to the beach now it's October and the 'No Dogs on This Beach' ban has been lifted.
And we'll buy you one of those exciting toys.

A Blast From The Past

I found some old images of my work from 1975-1979.

One of the main production items

Fruit bowls

Porcelain wine set

Liqueur set porcelain

Porcelain tea set

1968,Porthleven Cornwall. Jon Cheney Pottery.
Me in the background.

New ideas.

I am playing with the small scale of these images, printing them to 10 cms x 5 cms.

Ah, this is much better

There's a lovely shady path near home which borders a shallow stream.
The perfect place to take Budleigh to cool off.
He has been quite knocked out by the heat this week.

In he went, rather nervously at first.

This is unexpectedly nice.

Look, Budleigh, a stone. Let's play.

This has to be the best game, fetching stones from deep water.
We'll come paddling again soon.
