Fascinating Fact of the Day About St. Teath, Cornwall*:
So far this morning the sun is shining but we’re noticing dark clouds rolling in. If it doesn’t rain, in a few hours we’ll be on the road to go sightseeing. Taking photos on rainy days has become a source of frustration for me and I am determined to attempt to avoid adding rainy day photos to our inventory.
|We were especially enthused to see the pygmy goats. Unfortunately, the grass was too mushy and wet for us to get closer for better photos.|

|The last time we had access to a clothes dryer was in Costa Rica over two years ago. What a treat! Our clothes were washed and dried in a mere two hours, compared to a day or two of hanging them in humid weather.|
Have an excellent day filled with wonderful surprises!
