“The deeper blue ocean, the paler blue sky. The call of the seagulls all soaring on high.
Weherever I travel , wherever I roam, one day I will live here, and call Cornwall home”
If you’ve been following my ‘stories‘ on Instagram you’ll have no doubt noted that I’ve been staying down in Cornwall for the past week with my dad, boyfriend and our dog Mollie. I’ve become a ‘Cornwall bore’ although I can assure you there is nothing boring about Cornwall at all.
We choose Cornwall for numerous reasons.
My dad’s brother lives in Coombe [ near St Austell] and due to sickness couldn’t get up to Sheffield for mums funeral. Dad was keen to see him …as you can imagine.
It was a special place for mum and dad. They’ve spent a few holidays there in the past, the last one being in October last year. Not even a year ago – life … it’s so unpredictable, so preciousness .
So dad mentioned that he wanted to go back, I think in a ‘weird’ way it brings him comfort. It holds precious memories.
Who were we to say no?
We stayed in the beautiful area of Carbis Bay just outside St Ives which is around a 6 hour drive [ traffic willing ] from Sheffield .Yes you could get to Spain quicker!
I never intended to blog about my time spent in Cornwall … but after being there a few days I’d basically fallen in love.
The aqua blue seas drew me in, the tropical plants that surrounded the house made me feel like I was abroad. I just grew to ignore the biting wind . It had a magical feel to it. The view I woke up to every morning was delicious. Beautiful sunrises with multi-coloured skies. I honestly sat in bed every morning and pinched myself.
Basically I decided it was too good not to share with you all.
