Amazing time in Cornwall with Grandchildren

Back from amazing time in Cornwall with most of the grandchildren - sadly Elder Grandson had to go back before we arrived. Highlights included taking MJ (middle grand-daughter) sailing with Daughter in a Wayfarer in the Camel Estuary

"Are you enjoying this?"
"Yes - it's a bit scary - but fun!"

We built 3 Sandcastles, one combined with a Waterworks which survived 104 waves with MJ triumphantly riding it to the end.

MJ also helped me (a bit) translate two Psalms on the journey back.  Here is Psalm 53
The fool said in his heart there is no God.
They are corrupted, and they have performed
Abominable sins - no one does good.
The Lord from heaven looked on Adam's sons
To see if any understands, seeks God.
They're all together fallen and corrupt
There's no one who does good, not even one.
Have they no knowledge, those who sin, and eat
my people up like bread, not call on God?
They have become afraid with greater fear
Than fear has ever been. For God dispersed
Their very bones. And those encamped against
Were put to shame, for God rejected them.
O who will give from Zion saving help
To Israel? Ah when our God returns
Then shall His people's great return be had
Then Jacob will rejoice, Israel be glad.
