Running the breakwater
Cornwall was smashing! We had amazing weather (mostly), visited inspiring places and spent a wonderful time with friends.
Viewing the ruins of Tintagel
Tintagel, legendary birth place of King Arthur, is set on a stunning strip of coast.
Descending cliffs to Merlin's caves
A very steep hill down to the caves, not the best route, but we went anyway.
The Eden Project, a must when visiting Cornwall. A dream realized by its founder, Tim Smit, Eden is a huge eco project built in the pit of an old china clay quarry, a once barren landscape.
I forgot to photograph one of my favourite exhibits, "The Seed" by artist, Peter Randall-Page, but his website has it and the story behind his process.
This tiny cove hosted four young stone skippers who perfected their skill and two bigger skippers who battled it out for the most skips. Not only did we find perfect skipping stones here but also more than a few pieces of pretty sea glass.
One of many pretty Cornish fishing villages. We sat at the harbour with the sun on our faces and ate fish & chips, nothing could be nicer - except a pint of Betty Stogs to wash it down.
Castles of sand
Okay enough of other people's holiday photos, yawn, yawn, snooze, snooze. But I've enjoyed revisiting our wonderful week away.
The children will remember:
perfect skipping stones, cliff top walks, sea caves, blowing perfect bubbles, real waves, amazing geology, brilliant chips, cornish ice cream and very good times with very good friends
Their parent's will remember the same and Betty Stogs too of course :)
Be back soon with a new tutorial that's a real hoooooooot, and a look at a stitched up mushroom village.
PS - Forgot to mention that this little old blog has been nominated for a Dorset Cereals blog award. I'm not very good at spreading news about these things, but if you're in the clicking mood, click the button up there on the right and vote Nini. It's only for the month and as April is nearly over and I've only just been nominated I don't see that big juicy cereal prize package coming this way. But it really is sincerely fun to have been nominated :)
