A Cornish mini break.

This weekend we should have been on Lundy, another holiday sadly bumped until next year.

Instead we headed off to Cornwall. We stayed just outside of Falmouth and despite the horrendous weather forecast it was not too bad.

We arrived Friday evening and just had a quiet one, then on Saturday we headed over to the north coast as the Weather was set to be better over there.

Perranporth, one of my favourite places, so good to be back.


The weather was great, chilly breeze but stayed dry. We even managed to grab lunch in the watering hole...


It really was great to be back here, we walked along the whole length of the beach and back, sadly Seiners wasn't open, we usually stay here


It's the blue building, but we are booked in later in the year for a couple of nights. Our room looks straight down the beach.

Sunday started like this


 and didn't really get much better. 

We decided to head over to Marazion in the hope we might get a walk. we only managed a short walk  and then got drenched. It was also very breezy, but it was great and certainly blew the cobwebs out. 


It did actually look like this for about 10 minutes, then it blew over and went grey!




We ended up sat in the car with a cup of hot chocolate!

All in all it was a great weekend and a very much needed dose of Vitamin Sea. 
Now its back home and back to reality. 
Until my next mini break anyway....

  3. It looks lovely there despite the weather on Sunday. You needed that dose of Vitamin Sea. The strawberry and lime cider looks delicious.

    1. It was well needed and such a bonus being able to sit and enjoy the beach with a beverage !

  4. What a wonderful break, even if it did rain a little :) It's years since I visited Perranporth but I remember the beach seemed to go on forever. X

  5. I live in Cornwall and I'm pleased to see that you found some sunshine - the photos are lovely. We seem to have had weeks of rain and high winds with only an occasional break in the weather, giving a chance to enjoy the outdoors. My niece and her husband came down last Friday for a week on a walking and bird-watching holiday. I do wish I could have conjured some nicer days for them. :(
