Coastal escape – Falmouth 2017

A few weeks after our West Country visit to see S’s family, we had a proper getaway down to Cornwall for a holiday. I love this part of the UK, and although this is now the fourth year in a row we’ve had our summer hols to the same part of the world, I still find it breath-taking and thouroughly enjoy our visits there.

Although we based ourselves in Falmouth for the week, we got out and about a fair bit considering we were without the use of a car (as we live in London we don’t own one – it would be pointless most of the year).

We meandered along the beaches and shorlines of Falmouth:

I found plenty of plants and flowers to admire and snap:

We took strolls and caught ferries to other towns and villages:

We even made it as far as St Ives by train one day, which is on the other (North) coast of Cornwall. Oh my gosh it is a gorgeous town I can tell you. It’s the first time I’ve ever visited St Ives and the sandy beaches and turquoise water really took my breath away. You could almost think you were in the Meditereannean!

As you can see this Seagull obligingly decided to pose for me!

Well, that’s all for this time, I’ll try for a catch up on crafty goings on closer to home next time!
