We've just returned from a week's holiday in Cornwall and it was lovely! Even the weather for the majority of the time was good to us.
But a week just doesn't feel long enough. It whizzes by and before you know it you're back on the daily treadmill.
Oh how we've contemplated moving to Cornwall to live a different life.
Less digital entertainment, more interaction with our daughter and just a better way of living all round.
Maybe we'll do it one day...
Which is ideal when you have little ones. The chalet's back straight onto the sand dunes in Gwithian.
Pretty darn lush. It's pretty much a car free site. The only traffic you have to worry about are the bunny rabbits which Evie, myself and James loved watching. The chalet is basic and lovely with it. It is cheap to stay for a week and the only extra cost is the electricity meter, which worked out at about £20 for the week. Gwithian beach is gorgeous, with miles of sand and the Godrevy cafe buried at the back, which does amazing food, hot chocolates and even gluten free brownies. Huzzah!
As well as doing a lot of beach activities (watching surfers, building sandcastles, paddling) we visited Penzance with it's brilliant Admiral BenBow pub, Steckfensters (amazing bric-a-brac shop) and Fishboy (a fab clothing establishment)
We also pottered about in St Ives and St Agnes. St Ives' beaches are great and there are so many eateries now you can hang out there for quite some time. If the weather had have been nicer when we were there, I think we'd have gone on a boat trip to Seal Island for some seal spotting.
And to top it all off I managed to have a dance with the Pensans Morris Dancers in Marizion!!
Here are some photos of our trip:
