porthleven- the day

well, after a very early, wet and haily start things brightened up and the sunny patches began to out number the showers- phew. we anchored our gazebo to the harbour railings and soon became part of a small shanty type terrace and met our new neighbours. i shared my home for the day with the lovely 'humble cottage', friends from penryn and across the harbour 'the hot pot cafe' was serving up amazing pancakes- the rhubarb, ginger and creme fraiche was delicious!
we had constant entertainment from an entourage of different musicians and while we were chatting to friends in the green field a lady approached with a basket of pasta and rocket salads to raise funds for the local school. i was just saying that all we needed now was for someone to bring us cake and sure enough another lady appeared with a tray of beautiful cupcakes (this time for the gig team). it was becoming apparent that the best idea was to stay put while various people brought us their tasty offerings but alas, i had to return to my stall. 
unfortunately it wasn't a good day for trading but lots of fun and rounded off with cider in 'the ship'.
