We had the most amazing Christmas last year, away in a holiday cottage in Cornwall with my parents, my inlaw, my granny, three teens and Miss C’s boyfriend D. It was brilliant. Enough space for all to spread out but around the roaring fire (that my dad proudly kept lit all week) it felt cosy and like a home from home. Soon after we got back Team Honk kicked off and I never really got a chance to blog about Cornwall which is a shame as I loved the area, loved the village we stayed in and really wanted to do a post on the cottage for the owners.
But when I saw that the Gallery theme this week was the Great Outdoors it seemed an ideal opportunity to use one or two of the pictures I took whilst we were there.
I love the beach. Not necessarily lying on it, I am no sun worshipper, but the sound of the sea crashing on rocks is something I could listen to all day. I could sit on the beach and just watch the sea coming in and going out for hours on end. And the Cornish coast line is some of the most stunning I have ever seen. Little coves where you can really believe that pirates came in after dark. Wide open beaches that are packed with surfers at the height of summer.
We were there in December so the beaches were mostly deserted which was heaven but really made me want to come back. This was our second time to that part of the world and I really hope it won’t be our last.
Can you believe the first two pictures are taken in December?!
