More fun in Cornwall


Cornwall 2015 day 3 morning (20)


The weather here in Cornwall is glorious! Blue skies and sunshine. I even spent part of the day without my fleece! The forecast promises more of the same for the rest of the week; we feel very lucky!

Yesterday morning we went to the village of Boscastle and followed the coastal path along the side of the harbour and up around the headland. Breathtaking views, so I will just let the photos speak for themselves.

After a delicious lunch back at the cottage, we drove to Daymer Bay - an old childhood favourite. Many happy days were spent at this beach as a child. The beach is on the Camel Estuary, almost opposite Padstow and is now popular with surfers. The lovely little church of St Enodoc is behind the sand dunes at the back of the beach. It's a perfect spot to sit and while away an hour or so.

In the evening we went to a fabulous concert at St Endellion church - part of their annual Easter festival. We have another concert to look forward to later in the week. The highlight of the concert was the performance of Hungarian Dohnanyi's Piano Quintet. Well worth a listen to!


Today we walked along the Camel Trail from Wadebridge to Padstow and back! The trail runs along a disused railway line following the course of the Camel river and estuary. We stopped en route for refreshments from 'Treats on Trikes' - tea and an apricot slice for me and coffee and a granola bar for Mr JK. No photos as we scoffed them down in a flash!! I managed to clock up more than 30,000 steps on my Fitbit which equates to over 14 miles! So the double scoop ice cream at Padstow was thoroughly deserved I reckon!

Tomorrow we shall be going down to the far south west of the county - visits to St Ives and St Michael's Mount, all being well. I do believe that there was mention of a cream tea too! xxx
