After yesterday's episode of total exhaustion I decided to have a lie-in today in the hope of the spoon fairy paying me a return visit, alas she didn't, too busy elsewhere, maybe once a week is all you can expect. It was well after 11.00am when I finally came downstairs to be greeted by a beaming hubby who had already been out on a 3 hour walk to some secluded cove called " Mouthmill Cove".
We decided to stay at the cottage until after lunch to allow me more time to recoup my energy levels. We set off on a hour and half journey to visit The Japanese Garden & Bonsai Nursery at St. Mawgan, Newquay in Cornwall. This allowed me to rest further so on arrival I felt not too bad.
The Japanese gardens are beautifully set out with a bridge over a large pool with a small waterfall in one corner next to a Japanese tea house with bamboos and trees a plenty. The winding path goes through dense growths of bamboos with a surprise around each bend of water and stone features. The highlight for me was a covered area next to a raked gravel Zen garden, very relaxing and a beautiful place to sit and meditate which I did while hubby explored further, camera in hand.
It's only a small garden but sufficient to spend three quaters of an hour there taking in the variety of plants and well crafted Japanese structures. We then spent an enjoyable time looking around the exstensive collection of Bonsai's with hubby purchasing one for our own little Japanese Garden at home. It was a lovely larch tree with it's own monolith all in a little blue glazed pot.
On our return journey we visited the small Cornish town of Bude where we parked up and had a short stroll towards the beach. Unfortunately we didn't stay long as the weather broke and we got caught in a very heavy shower. From the look of the clouds rolling in off the sea plenty more were on the way. We had made the right decision with the rain setting in for the rest of the evening and night.
