If you’ve read my last proper post, you’ll have seen that I’ve recently returned from a lovely holiday in St Ives, Cornwall. We went down that way for our friends Sarah and Nick’s wedding, but we had the place we rented for a week so took advantage of being down that way.
Above was the view of Carbis Bay from our property. We’d been to Cornwall a few times, usually choosing to stay in or near Fowey, however we can now say our hearts firmly prefer St Ives.
The Monday after the wedding began with breakfast in a little cafe, whilst it drizzled outside, but within about half an hour of us finishing, the sun had come out and it was warm enough to walk around without a jacket over my vest top.
The streets of St Ives are so pretty. They wind, rise and fall and the shops are adorable.
We ate some great food and drank some yummy cider (loving Rattler now!) I had a gorgeous rum and gin cocktail at the Rum and Crab shack along with some crab nachos.
I was constantly amazed by how clear the water in the harbour and on the beaches was (and how vicious the seagulls were!)
Other than the wedding on the Sunday, there were two other highlights of our stay in St Ives. The first was a ghost walk we took with Caz and Chris one evening. The guy who was guiding it was outstanding, and we were taken to some awesome locations. The grave yard and the beach were two stand-out places. So atmospheric and unforgettable. The second highlight was Amy’s birthday which fell on Thursday. We met up in the evening for sit-down fish and chips followed by cupcakes on the beach.
It was an awesome break, and I can’t wait to get together with this lovely lot again! We’ll definitely be going back to St Ives soon! Whilst we were there we went into so many art galleries, and came away with three pieces for our house. I might have also come away with these beautiful works of art….
Sigh, I’m in Love!
So, thanks St Ives. We’ll be back soon!
