Without doubt, Autumn is our favourite season. Cornwall takes on the most amazing feeling, with long, lazy days, but with slightly less traffic on the roads and beaches almost deserted. This weekend we packed up our Kelly Kettle (more on this later in the month), flask of homemade spicy tomato soup and the sledge and off we went to Holywell Bay. The stunning Bay has featured in the blog before, mainly because it is amazing but we had so much fun sledging down the dunes. For the cost of the car park, or nothing if you are National Trust members a day spent here is a fun day in deed.
I just love soup and coffee on a slightly breezy beach. It reminds us, and affirms why we have chosen to live in search a beautiful place and why Cornwall is such a special place to visit. We were lucky enough to enjoy a week just over the
border in Devon ourselves a couple of weeks ago. We went to Woolacombe Bay for our family holiday and had such a special time and the weather was on our side too, Indian summers are great! You don’t have to go far to enjoy a break.
Have you been watching Poldark? We were lucky enough to watch the filming last year and just last week as we were walking out of St Austell and who should cross our path – only Aiden Turner, Ross Poldark himself. Richard thought it quite bad that I abandoned a two year on a main road to chase him, and couldn’t understand how my bad back which has stopped me doing most things disappeared. Once I composed myself I took hold of said child and proceeded to encourage (drag) her up the steep hill to see where he went. He walked right over the top of our road, which I am sure has added £5,000 to our house price and headed towards Charlestown. It may my day anyway.
