Holiday in Cornwall

Well we're now back from our holiday to Cornwall. This year with a 3 year old and a 4 month old there was no way I was going to be holidaying abroad so with fond childhood memories of Cornwall we packed our belongings (what seemed like the entire house) and headed of to St Austal. After what seemed like hundreds of stops at service stations we finally reached Cornwall and what a delight.
The luggage was thrown in the hotel room unfortunately not the pretty cottages that you associate with Cornwall but the Travel Lodge(it was cheap). We then headed for the local beach. It was getting a little dark by then but there was a group of wind surfers on the sea and it was lovely to watch. The next couple of days were sent exploring the beaches of Cornwall, building sand castles, paddling in the sea and eating ice cream. Oh the ice cream the best I've ever had :-). The time flew by it was so lovely. Just before we left we headed down to Mevagissey, oh my god the most beautiful place, the harbour is full of cute little boats and the town is just lovely full of cute old fashioned shops selling beautiful handmade items, heaven :-). I even came back with a new pair of green shoes.
Anyone who ever gets the chance to go must.
All in all a beautiful holiday just way to short, I'll definitely be going back next year.

Here's some of my seaside inspired items, including my Mevagissy inspired clock (all available for sale at
