Life in Pictures: St. Ives

St Ives Cornwall 30

So we had a little holiday in St. Ives, Cornwall, for a week and it was lovely and now I think I’d quite like to live there. We left at 4am due to my (slightly OTT) panic about getting stuck in a jam with two bored kids on a journey that already takes 6 hours.

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.

We went with my brother and his girlfriend, both of whom the kids absolutely adore. We were so grateful to outnumber the kids for once, and to have a bit of adult company in the evenings where we didn’t simply talk about children!
