Our Cornish holiday part 2 - things we did

There was plenty of shopping, in cobbled streets and unusual shops.


A farmers market, to sample local produce and buy cheese and jam and other such delights.








We visited Truro Cathedral.




And the famous author, Daphne Du Maurier's house, she often stayed here whilst writing her best sellers.


And we dined out in restaurants and enjoyed expensive steaks and fresh fish.


Coming soon, a zoo, a cider farm, ports and views and Land End.

Our Cornish holiday - St Ives

St Ives is a picturesque coast line town, surrounded by stunning Cornish scenes. I recently spent a week in this charming location, in a beach style holiday cottage, with lovely boyfriend and his lovely family.
For your viewing, and my reminiscing, I have decided to upload our holiday pictures over a period of posts.
It was a photographer's haven, picture post card at every corner. Stay tuned for a variety of pictures from our Cornish holiday, and it all began in St Ives.

First post - St Ives.

Our holiday cottage.


Situated near Tee Total Street. Ironically, that's Mark sitting on the wall underneath the street name.


The kitchen. Only sat in once, on our last night, for the biggest Chinese take away in the world. We were too busy eating to take picture of the food, this is the before take away photograph.


One of the three bedrooms, the largest and one of the nicest.


The lounge. Many a night spent in here, relaxing after a hard day's shopping and exploring, drinking wine, reading magazines, watching television, and playing scramble.


The trail to lovely boyfriend's sadly departed mother's memorial bench, the holiday cottage was carefully chosen with the bench in mind.


Sitting on the bench.


On route to the beach, a stone's throw away from our cottage.


Deck chairs on the beach.


Sandcastles.


Pimms o'clock.


Admiring the beach.


Rock climbing.


On the rocks.


Anyone fancy an ice-cream?


Sky is looking moody now, time to head back to the holiday cottage.
