My Holidays

We hadn't been on holiday for about three years and with Rob losing his job recently it seemed like a good time to go away.

We headed down to my sisters near Cardiff last Saturday where we had a lovely relaxing time. We went down to their local beach which was scorching and then ate (lots!).

On Monday morning we headed to Cornwall. We decided to camp in Bodmin so set up camp ended up asleep by 8 because we forgot batteries for the light!

On Tuesday we visited Looe and Fowey. It rained constantly but this didn't stop us having a great time.

Wednesday we went to St Ives. I absolutely love it there, Rob ended up being dragged around all the shops!
We went to the pretty Cath Kidston shop, Poppy Treffry and Red Hot Sal amongst others.
We took a walk on the beach and managed to find some small bits of sea glass too which was a bonus!

On Thursday we went to the Eden Project. I have been before, not long after it had opened but it has changed so much. Loved every minute of it.
On Friday we went to Padstow, it wasn't long before the sky turned grey and we heard rumbles of thunder. Then there was the flashes of lightening and suddenly all plans for the day went out the window! To stay in the dry we went to the Jamaica Inn, had a lovely roast dinner and a wander round the museum.

We left only to see massive queues on the A30 so we de-toured for what seemed like hours in the fog and torrential rain over Bodmin Moors. 

The rain and wind continued all night, I did think that the wind was going to take our little tent but we were safe. Lots of other campers didn't last the night and packed up in the pitch black.

We are now back in Leamington Spa but so wishing we were back in Cornwall - I'm longing for a little shop down there now!

P.S Very annoyed we forgot to get pasties!
