I'm back...

Back from holiday - very overwhelmed by my ironing pile right now but I'm having a breather to put some of my pics up in case you are interested!!!! Didn't take as many as I thought I had though!
We stayed not far from Newquay (which didn't impress me - sorry!! more on that another time!!) and my new favourite places in the world are Port Isaac and Padstow.

Truly fabulous part of the country - I totally get now why artists of all descriptions end up there for inspiration - only downside is it is such a long way away!!Are we there yet? times loads on both journeys!!! Will definately go back again when little boys are bigger unless someone works out how to move Cornwall to the East Coast!!!

St Ives beach - the sea was too cold for us softies though!!Fishing with Grandad...I was stood on the verandah of our lodge taking this.Newquay surfers -Port Isaac - fell in love with nearly every house here!

Glad you had such a lovely time. Lovely pictures, looks like you got some sun too.

We were on holiday in Port Isaac (during the July monsoon) last year and although it tipped down everyday but the last, the place completely captured my heart. Hoping to go back for a fortnight next year - just the perfect place for kids on the beach isn't it.

Hope the ironing doesn't bring you down with too much of a bump!

Ooohh, it looks lovely there ~ I don't know the west country very well. We're off to Norfolk soon, can't wait. Hope you had a nice break.

Port Issac and Padstow are both lovely, we like to go to Padstow in the evening,in the Summer for fish and chips, it's only a 15 minute drive away. Newquay's quite nice for Christmas shopping but too hectic at this time of year. Looks like you had a great time though.
