Hubby and I are just back from 3 wonderful days in Cornwall. We both needed a rest after the manic few weeks preparing for our daughter's wedding - It was a real treat to get away and not have to think about it any more, except to treasure the lovely memories we now have of her perfect day. I'll compose a lengthy blog post all about the wedding when I have time over the next few days or so...We've now seen the the professional photos from the fabulous Andy, which I shall also share with you - If anyone is looking for a wedding photographer please let me know as I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
|For now it's beautiful Cornwall - St. Ives to be precise, where we were blessed with blue skies, blue seas and warm autumn sunshine. Bliss!|
Monday we visited St.Michael's Mount.
We walked across the causeway at low tide...
|To the island.|
I was fascinated by these curtains hanging at the windows in the castle...I've had a very similar fabric to this in the past myself, which I've made into items for sale in my shop. It would date from around the C18th and is French.
|Tuesday we visited a seal sanctuary at Gweek. Some of the rescued seals are blind, but still enjoy a happy and relaxing life amongst their companions in the pool.|
|Afterwards we strolled around a garden at Godolphin. |
(Not one I'd particularly recommend though.)
|Wednesday we came home along the north coast, stopping at as many places that we could before heading home...|
Above is Polperro beach.
|Port Isaac, where TV series Doc Martin was filmed.|
|And finally Boscastle.|
It was a real treat to get away and share my days with hubby, as we have so few opportunities to spend time with one another with work and other distractions taking priority. It was Hub's Birthday at the beginning of October, which came and went without much chance to celebrate, as final wedding preparations were under-way, then he had to work away in Germany - Our mini-break did make up for that though.
Hope all is happy with you,
