Holiday Day 2

A quick update from me.


This was our view this morning – misty and drizzly so we headed into the surf for some fun this morning. Lunch was a cream tea! The lady that owns this cottage left us scones, jam and clotted cream – shame to waste it!

This afternoon turned even more misty, so we put on waterproof jackets and walked around the coast path to Rock.


This is the Doom Bar – a sand bar that has been the doom of many a ship!

In Rock we went to look at an art exhibition, had coffee and then walked back – 6.2 miles done!

Dinner has been cobbled together – bacon and beans on toast. Lovely! Now I am resting my weary legs before we head up the hill for a small glass of wine later!

Have a marvellous Monday!

Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

Yesterday was hubby’s 60th birthday! We had a great day, a trip to Bodmin Moor and coffee at the Jamaica Inn, then a long walk to Rock.


After our walk, we went to Ann’s Cottage to buy new winter wet suits – not easy at the best of times, but with a load of stitches in your leg – well! I gave up in the end, but hubby chose his. Last night we had a nice dinner at The Oystercatcher and a few glasses!

Today has been beautiful again. This morning, coffee at Port Isaac:


Then another 5 miles this afternoon to Pentire Head and back. I also went back to look at wet suits armed with plasters and plastic bags! Bought a lovely new O’Neill wet suit, gloves and a hat. All sorted now! I just need my leg to heal and we’ll be in the water.

Tomorrow will be our last full day here. So sad to have to think about going home! Still, a whole day with lots of walking to be done!

A Long Way & A Little Jiggle

What a fabulous day! The sun has shone and we had ice cream on the beach! 🙂


This morning we walked, ferried and shopped in Padstow, before getting the ferry back, we had a pasty for lunch! Yummy. Ferry back to Rock then the long walk home. Total to that point was 7.09 miles! I rested a bit, but it was so nice out we went down to the beach again and had an ice cream.

We even had a look at winter wet suits as it was so lovely today, great waves and loads of people out there surfing – jealous! I did buy some bandages though, so I can try on a new suit! Maybe tomorrow? 🙂

So, on our long trek today I had a little joggle on the beach – it felt good! My ankle is now very swollen (too much?) and red raw – probably from my shoes rubbing. I also managed to get pooped on today – flipping seagulls! So I have just showered and done my hair again!

Busy old day, but made do with a ham sandwich and a tomato for dinner – enough after the ice cream!

Tomorrow? Truro I think – loads of shops there! Have a good day!
