Take me to the sea

We're back from our holiday in Cornwall and we had an amazing time. We packed so much into our seven day holiday, dressing up as pirates, seeing a show at the Minack Theatre, playing on the beach, mooching round the shops at St Ives, visiting St Michaels Mount, seeing artists work as part of the Open Studios week (in particular Faye Dobinson, who I will blog about at a later date) and lots & lots of walks around the coastline.

I have taken loads of photos, so please indulge me while I share just a few of them here...

Our home for the week

We walked through these beautiful paths nearly everyday...on our circuit we saw birds of prey hovering over the cliffs, shiny black beetles, strange buzzing green beetles, cow parsley, pretty pale lilac flowers (might be thrift, need to get a flower book!), shetland ponies, lots of large lambs and much, much more

The view from our circuit walk through the lanes around our cottage. Jaw-droppingly wonderful...the view out towards Sennen Cove and Gwenver beach

Enjoying the view at the Minack Theatre...where we saw a production of "Annie". Anyone who performs there must have to get used to being upstaged by the wonderful panorama behind them...

We took part in the world record attempt for most amount of pirates in one place which took place in Penzance.

My daughter loves pirates and she has an amazing costume at home, but we didn't bring it with us to Cornwall...so I had to improvise with cardboard, wool, my stripy top and a head scarf...not to mention a nasty scar created with eyeliner!

Beautiful weather at Sennen Cove beach...perfect for frisbee, sand castle making & ice-cream eating

And it wasn't all blue skies, we had loads of rain over the first couple of days...but that didn't stop us getting out for a walk - plus it means there are puddles to jump in!

I'll leave you with a photo of a Sennen sunset...or watching 'the sun plop into the sea' as my daughter likes to call it.

This is why I adore Cornwall! Even though we live here I still appreciate the beauty. Your photos really show off your week well. Great that you managed to get involved in the local activities and wow to that sunset. I have a feeling we will see you back in Cornwall again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful holiday on Country Kids
