A Week in Cornwall - Part One: Relaxation

We have had such a lovely week in Cornwall; it was warm and sunny every day - which never happens when we go away!  We had a leisurely breakfast in the garden, and then decided what to do for the day.

Of course, we found it difficult to figure out where things were, so spent quite a lot of time driving up roads like this:

and this:

and this:

but then suddenly you were looking at this:

The beaches were really crowded because it was half term, so we tended not to spend too much time on them.

We were really happy to visit Tregondale Farm, where our new bull came from, and Mervyn Rowe and his daughter-in-Law Helen showed us all round.  What an idyllic spot

and how great to see Tregondale Dynamic's family!

Another highlight was the Hidden Gardens of Helligan, which just made you so keen to make your own garden as productive

and to perhaps throw together a mud sculpture!
or be more adventurous with my pots:

We loved looking round Lanhydrock house and gardens

but the highlight had to be the visit to Looe Island,  also known as St George's Island.

Who wouldn't want to live in this little house,

and spend your days looking out to sea,

or trying to spot the seals as they bobbed up to breathe

and watching the gulls feeding their chicks

What a life!


  1. Glad you had the good weather and nice to see J in his shorts.
    Looe Island looks lovely.

  2. You`ve been lucky. Its been so cold here we`ve had to light fires. Looks like you`ve had a good time. Looking fwd to next installment.

  3. So lucky to have sunshine. Cornwall in the sun is so beautiful!
