Long Weekend

I've been away from home for a long weekend in Cornwall. A very old friend of mine was getting married on Friday, so we travelled down to my Dad's so that we could attend the ceremony and the reception. It was a naval wedding with all the trimmings but was, nonetheless, very low key and very enjoyable. I had a great time, which is a rarity given my usual aversion to all things nuptual, so it was a cracking day all round.

Today we decided to head up to the hill behind my Dad's for a bit of fresh air. As you can see, it's a really nice part of the world to grow up in and a fantastic place for kids. We had a really good time exploring the old mines and quarries, although my erudite industrial archaeology lecture fell on deaf ears. The boys were too interested in scramblimg up the finger dumps and my daughter was far too busy torturing tadpoles to pay attention.

Anyway, back to the real wargaming world and on with the BKC Italians this week...


  1. Awesome! Glad you had a great weekend and I hope the wedding went well

  2. Just stunning scenery, a beautiful part of the world indeed.
