Well Im back but not quite ready to Post a Card

Hi Girls, well I arrived back about 3.30pm this afternoon, and its been a long drive back from Looe in Cornwall but is so nice to be back in my own home. We had a really lovely time and met up with some very dear friends from Guernsey and of course did we stop chatting no, and of course our throats were sore by the end of the day but it was all worth it.
I decided to post this lovely photo that I took just after we arrived on Monday and though it rained yesterday the weather hasnt been to bad at all. I hope you like this gorgeous photo it shows the the river Looe which eventually joins the estuary and the harbour before going flowing out to the English Channel. I like it as it looks so peaceful at this point.
Weve visited Polperro and Padstow over the last couple of days and even went through my birthplace town Bodmin which was wonderful, not that its anything to brag about but its just nice to pop back there occassionally. The weather wasnt to bad and never mind it was really hot on the way home today so Im hoping our friends had a lovely day in Plymouth and Looe after we left.
Im hoping to get back to my crafting tomorrow and as soon as I do I will hopefully post a card very soon.

Hi Shirley,
how nice that you were in Cornwall. This has long been a dream of mine. The only reason I can see me like the films of R. Pilcher, because I find the landscapes beautiful.
