After Vanessa's baptism in August, Emily said she'd like to be baptised. We assumed it would be next year. Then yesterday morning in the service, our pastor announced that they were having a baptism event at Looe beach in the afternoon and if anyone else wanted to be baptised to talk to him after the service. Emily told me as soon as the service finished that she wanted to be baptised that afternoon.
Looe beach was very busy for an October weekend. The tide was very far out so this picture doesn't show how busy the beach was as most people were above the high tide mark.
On Saturday we went for a walk around Sibleyback Lake on Bodmin Moor. It was very warm and sunny. My back was very, very bad and I didn't think I could walk all the way around the lake so I walked a short bit, found a bench, listened to my e-book on my phone (Sense & Sensibility) and knitted. Here's the view in front of me:
and behind me:
In front of me was the view of the lake:
At one end of the lake there is a dam
One thing that really shocked me was how low the water levels were. It feels like we've had a really rubbish summer but we obviously haven't had as much rain as it felt like. I've not seen the lake this low for a long, long time.
I've got to go and get some knitting done. I'm a bit worried about some deadlines. I'll leave you with a couple of more pics of the beautiful lake:
