I have been enjoying some beach time down in west Cornwall for the last week or so. A family trip to one of my favourite areas of the country. It was such a relaxing holiday; a well-balanced mix of sandcastle-making and rock-pooling, days exploring beautiful coastal villages, and long, lazy pub lunches to avoid rain showers. If you follow along on Instagram, I have been sharing photos of the bright Cornish skies, gorgeous beaches and cake too! The short break allowed me to look at the blog afresh, and I have updated the design slightly. I hope that you like the new look!
I have visited the far south and west of Cornwall so many times; at least once a year for most years of my life! I love how there is always something new to find; a new beach or cove, or footpath; a cafe that has opened, or a hidden gem I have just not found before. Inevitably, a place changes, and that is not all good. Towns and villages such as St Ives and Mousehole are so much busier with tourism, and more upmarket than they used to be, even ten years ago. As much as I enjoy going back to see old favourites, and to see how they have changed, I love searching out new places to explore just as much, if not more sometimes!
I have so many photos of our trip to share, including Cadgwith Cove, St Michael’s Mount, St Ives, Trevoole Farm and gardens, Kynance Cove. Once I have sorted through them I look forward to sharing more.
