A few weeks ago I posted about the first half of our trip to Cornwall with my brother and his girlfriend, and I’ve finally managed to go through the remaining holiday snaps.
We spent a glorious day in Watergate Bay, Newquay, where Katie and I had a lesson in Standup Paddle Boarding. I think it is becoming our new favourite thing… ever. It was lovely to learn something new, not have something or someone demanding my attention, and work a few different muscles than usual. We’ve had another go in Brighton since we’ve been back and are planning to go a lot over the summer.
I think Harper (and all of us really) found our happy place on the beach. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so excited simply running in and out and in and out of the sea and wanting to be buried in the sand. Grayson was pleased just to be toddling about without being told to not eat the stones as this is what happens every time we go to the beach in Brighton.
On a day when the weather wasn’t beach-worthy, we went to explore the Lost Gardens of Heligan to check out one of the longest Burmese Rope Bridges in Britain. Harper and I went across it and were so slow that we had a huge queue of people waiting to follow us. At least there wasn’t a queue behind us on the rope swing!
In between all our day trips, we did spend a lot of time at our cottage. It had such a spacious garden with a climbing frame and slide, which the kids loved as it’s something we don’t have at our house.
Thanks for having us Cornwall! See you again next year for sure.
