Cornwall at it's best!

Late Monday afternoon we headed for Cornwall - the weather forecast was good - sunny weather ahead, so we packed the car and headed down to Mum and Dad's for a few days.

 Tuesday we headed to our favourite beach over at Godrevy - the tide was high and the beaches busy but good waves for a spot of body boarding.

 What better view at breakfast time - bacon butties and an early start over at St Ives

 Absolutely beautiful day

 Blue skies all day until.....

..... the sea mist rolled in - incredible difference and grey end to the day!

It was slightly windy today so we headed over to the stylish, Jubilee Pool in Penzance - a sea water lido.

 With the high walls, we were sheltered from the wind.

 Love Sophie's red and white spotty swimsuit against the pale blue painted walls.

 In the evening Jeff and I headed back over to St Ives for a meal out - just the two of us. We saw the now 'common' sight of the seals in the harbour

 and enjoyed a sunnier end to our day.

 We headed over to Falmouth as it was too windy to sit on the beach. I haven't been for years but we had a lovely day wondering through the town and harbours.

 The bunting was out and.....

 ... of course the obligatory ice-cream enjoyed!

 My Granny celebrated her 89th Birthday today, so wanted to treat us all to Fish and Chips at Becks and delicious they were too!

We finished the day off all sat around the TV watching the fantastically British Olympic Opening Ceremony.


We headed over to Truro on Saturday morning for a spot of Retail Therapy and spent the afternoon over at my Granny's before packing and heading home today.

We have been so very lucky with the weather, blue skies and sunshine all week - when the sun shines you can't beat a bit of a British Beach Break!

Wow Becky! You all look like you are having a wonderful time. Any idea where there is a good campsite near there? We are thinking of heading down that way in a few weeks. Speak soon Jox
