Cornwall part one: Kynance Cove, Marazion & St Ives

DSCN0719edBeautiful Kynance Cove; it always makes me think of old-fashioned Enid Blyton-style jolly adventures! The sea here is so clear and blue-green, and so perfectly surround by the dark cliffs and wildflowers of the cove; it almost doesn’t seem real. The late summer sea was warm, and as the tide came in we explored rock pools and found crabs and tiny fish. Mia spent hours ‘rescuing’ them in her fishing net and then setting them free.

DSCN0748edAt the start of the holiday Joe was still undecided about whether he liked the beach or not. He switched between hiding away, eating rice cakes, and bravely chasing seagulls, or other people’s footballs!

That’s a lot of blue sky! I just can’t apologise though…how lucky we were to have such gorgeous weather for our time in Cornwall. I think it might just be the loveliest place in the world when the sun shines. More to come…
