2 January 2015

We’re in Cornwall for a long weekend. Home away from home. We spent the day at Constantine Bay. We’d planned to spend a couple of hours there. We spent five. I pondered, pottered and played. Big high loud deafening waves. … Continue reading

Cornwall – May 2013 Bank Holiday weekend

Hmmm. It was always my aim to write about Cornwall today. How topical. The latest storm to batter Britain has inflicted much damage to the South West. The latest news is that Devon and Cornwall could be cut off for six … Continue reading

Cornwall – December 2013

It’s still raining outside. I don’t think it will ever stop. That’s it. And that’s fine. Once you accept this, you begin to relax a little and are able to get on with your life. Clearly, I’m lying. I shall … Continue reading

Cornwall – February 2013

Dull grey sky. Watched the waves crash into the island with a flask of coffee and biscuits. Since our last visit, another bit of the coastal path has been shut. Ouch. Watched Newquay lose at home to Tavistock. I hadn’t been … Continue reading

Cornwall – January 2013

I love our weekends in Cornwall. And the ‘out of season’ ones are some of the best. Near-deserted beaches. Nice crisp weather. We found a new cave to explore in Holywell Bay (must remember to take a torch with us … Continue reading
