A long weekend in Cornwall

As I am writing this I am sat with my feet up, relaxing as I have broken my toe. Awesome. But anyway, for the last few days, me, Sean, mom and dad have been in sunny Cornwall. We stayed at a lovely little campsite in Newquay, and I couldn't have faulted it. Although I could only get a few days off work, we manged to have such a nice holiday, and I would have loved to stay longer. We spent the first day getting settled in and having a yummy meal at Wetherspoons.

On the second day we had a drive around Newquay and had a walk down to the beach to watch the surfers. We then parked up on the beach for a few hours and finished the day off with a yummy hot chocolate in an adorable hippie cafe full of cushions and bean bags.


On the third day we drove to a little seaside town called Mevagissy and spent most of our time walking around the tiny bookshops and boutiques. There was a small aquarium in Mevagissy which we were more then happy to spend a while in. We then grabbed a few proper Cornish pasty's and sat along the harbor,where in true Cornish style it started to absolutely tip it down. But this didn't ruin the day and we carried on looking round the little shops. After that we headed back to the site to get ready for another yummy meal at Wetherspoons.


On day 4, our last day, we headed into St Ives, one of my favorite places in the world! This time me and Sean headed off on our own round the town and I showed him all the best places to go. We got the train in from Hayle which runs across the coast giving lovely views of the beaches. I took him round all my favorite shops, picking up some gorgeous incense sticks and some books for the upcoming book swap. We had dinner at a lovely seafront chip shop and Sean bought me the loveliest handmade glass elephant necklace. We then went to the Tate and saw some amazing pieces before climbing to the top of the 'island' to take in the gorgeous views over St Ives before grabbing some dinner from, you guessed it, Wetherspoons. After dinner we had some lovely hot chocolates and headed home to Brum.
