Someone told me that they had started filming Poldark in Cornwall this week. On Monday, they were seen filming in Park Head. So I ask Rob if he could take me there to watch the film shooting but he said "ABSOLUTELY NOOOOO"!!! He'd rather go birdwatching than watch a film shooting. I was really disappointed. But I was sooo delighted when we saw the OSPREY and other species in Devoran Quay yesterday.
Today, Rob told me he want to see the Portuguese man o' war in Holywell Bay. I am rather skeptical but I said yes. So off we go to Holywell Bay. When we arrived in the car park, my eyes went wide with excitement when I saw all the signage and the big vans. And the look of horror on Rob's face is just sooo comical and hilarious. How I wish I was able to photograph that look. Right that moment, I immediately know that they are filming Poldark exactly where Rob wants to go. It was his idea to come here not mine. Hahaha... Luckily, we were able to see a few "Portuguese man o' war" to keep Rob happy and satisfied and of course we also saw Aidan Turner aka Captain Ross Poldark and Eleanor Tomlinson aka Demelza Poldark. This really made my day.
The Atlantic Portuguese man o' war (Physalia physalis), also known as the man-of-war, blue bottle, or floating terror, is a marine hydrozoan of the family Physaliidae found in the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
But of course, the main reason in coming to the beach is to have a breath of the fresh Cornish sea air which is good for my lungs and cough.
It's a WIN WIN situation!!!
