Hi everyone, for the second part of our holiday blog im going to show you the beaches and scenes of cornwall which we enjoyed.
I have to say they have some of the prettiest coves and small beaches in england i think where you can stroll and take in all the beauty we take so much for granted, As i walked and felt the sun and the breeze and breathed in the fresh air i reflected on my life and some things i am not to happy with, things that make me feel stressed and unhappy, but really even though we think we cant cope at times, we must be gratefull for our health and remember some are alot worse of in other ways.
But im sure like most of us i will still stress out and feel like i have all the problems but im glad im here and i can escape from time to time and enjoy our lovely country.
HAHAH i better stop before you all either cry or fall asleep lol.
Anyway here are some sea and scenery pics, so chill and enjoy


Also i hope to use some of my photos to help me with my art, so plenty to keep me going in the winter months.
We have done plenty of gardening and jobs since we came back but when the sun shines i so enjoy being outside dont you :o))

Love your pics, San, especially pic 6 ... were you near to Truro or Falmouth at all? ... Michael's sister used to live in a pretty village near Truro ... he would move to that area tomorrow given half a chance! ... How did Baz like driving along the narrow country lanes? ... :o)))

1 Oct, 2011

 

shirley we went to truro and all over, lots of little villages and coves, i loved it, we got stuck in one place, before i could warn baz of the access only sign he had already turned down into the road only to be face to face with another car, think a local who waved us back angrilly lol, was a nightmare i tell you hahha, not enough room for one car never mind two.

more lovely pictures, thank you!! looks a lovely place.

1 Oct, 2011

 

It is a beautiful part of the country, San, even if the roads are so narrow in places! ... :o)

1 Oct, 2011

 

thanx sticki, its a lovely place ;o))
thats true shirley and was worth the long drive down there ;o)

1 Oct, 2011

 

lovely stuff Sandra - we stayed at a place called Looe when I was about 7 - lovely views!!!!

1 Oct, 2011

 

Wonderful pics,San..I can see you were looking at them from an artists point of view..some nice material there..Is that Padstow in the 3rd pic? ..We love Cornwall too..so glad you and Baz had a great time.,and well worth the long drive...stay longer next time,if you can..:o)

1 Oct, 2011

 

Oh yes, San, I do enjoy being outdoors! Been inside all day today (rained all day long) doing seaglass mosaic. Nearly finished now...a bit 'quirky' but we'll see. I quite like it.

Anyway, I was going to say...we all have things in our lives we regret or things that didn't turn out the way we hoped don't we. My life is absolutely nothing like I planned it to be when I was 20! Almost the opposite of all my plans! As you say though... good health is very precious, and I have lost several friends young to Cancer so I try to keep things in perspective when I am feeling old and a bit low.

The sunshine and warmth on our skin makes a huge difference to our wellbeing doesn't it...both physical and spiritual. Thank goodness you had some nice weather in Cornwall...it rained when we went...but that's just the story of my life at the moment! lol

Your photos are amazing...love the one of the boats, and the one of the beach from the cave and the one of the rock-pools....very beautifully composed if I may say so! :))

1 Oct, 2011

 

Cornwall is a beautiful part of the world and to go out of season is the best time to see it, you have taken some beautiful pics, capturing the real feel and beauty of the place.

1 Oct, 2011

 

Lovely photo's. I would just love to move down to Cornwall but I would miss seeing my children far too much. It has some beautiful places. I liked Looe very much when we stayed there at a friends house overlooking the 2 sister's island. We spent hours rock pooling, it's so peaceful down there. And the pasties are scrumptious.........Did you get to Charlestown where the tall ships anchor? That's a lovely place to spend the day.

thanx paul :o)))
sandra your right i was taking photos in hope it would inspire my art lol and think that phot was padstow, so many places i cant remember which is which, it had a old museum at the end off the left side key! with all info on fishing and the place over the years, such a hot day we had cornish ice-creal yummy ;o))
hi karen and thankyou so much, glad you like the cave one to, it just does something for me looking out from that cave lol,

If you saw Rick Steins Restaurant,and his fish and chip shop on the front,it is Padstow,San..

2 Oct, 2011

 

Love those photos San. Clever girl. I love Cornwall too, and had a Pasty at Ricks Steins shop, Smoked haddock, leek and clotted cream. It was delicious.

2 Oct, 2011

 

I want to go there now lol after seeing these pics and they remind me of several previous hols we had there.
Wonderful isn't it Sandra :o)))
Yes I agree with what you said at the beginning about being stressed and thinking we can't cope. - been there done that lol but wonderful places like this can help us get through it all
Thank you X :o)

3 Oct, 2011

 

sandra i think we did see it as there was alot of people waiting about near a resturant, but didnt go in, i like him but i wont pay the prices they want as celeb chefs. we did have a pasty from another shop somewhere and was very nice ;o)
cinders that sounds yummy :o))thanx ;o)
hi hywel and thankyou, glad it brought back memories and happy ones to, maybe you will go back there, it sure de-stresses you i must say, mind you doesnt take long to get back into stress mode when home lol,
waiting in all day today as having some windows replaced, i hate being trapped in when its not my choice hahah, at least its not raining :o))x

3 Oct, 2011

 

rick Stein owns a lot of property there,San..but he does a lot for the community,I believe..we didn't eat from there either..but I bought one of his foldaway shopping bags ,which has been well worth the £5 I paid for it..it goes everywhere with me..just in case I see a bargain!:o))

3 Oct, 2011

 

lol sandra,strange how people buy a bag if everything else is expensive, remember my mum buying a Harrods bag haha
nice he does things for community though ;o)

3 Oct, 2011

3 Oct, 2011

3 Oct, 2011

 

thankyou Frybo and Skip.., glad you enjoyed them, it was a lovely break :o)

3 Oct, 2011

 

I had one of those green Harrods bags too ! We were used to being kind to the planet then..not many throwaway plastic ones around ! I still am,and always take my own bags to the supermarket...

3 Oct, 2011

 

yes i take my own to sandra, much stronger anyway than plastic ones, trouble is my son keeps borrowing them and i end up buying more cause i dont get them back lol

3 Oct, 2011

 

Kids eh ? My daughter 'borrows' things too..:o) Nice new Avatar from 'Eden' ,San :o)

3 Oct, 2011

 

Beautiful San. I loved the rock pools best, but great collection. Inspiring to me. :-) There is a real essence to the sequence, cool mist and salty peat. What a great get away.

3 Oct, 2011

 

glad you like it sandra thanx :o))
hi GT and thanx for stopping by and taking a look,
im sure if you were over here you would love to go to cornwall as your an outdoor person, lovely walks and history, and all that sea air, wonderfull :o))

4 Oct, 2011

 

I hope you had your windows and that they are satisfactory.
When I lived in the old cottage we had new windows, and it was June. But it was blowing a gale and lashing rain lol . They didn't do one at a time, but they took them all out and then fitted the new ones - daft in that weather lol I froze :D

5 Oct, 2011

 

Lovely photo`s San, I always liked exploring in the caves and spent ages checking out the rockpools, I can remember the narrow roads and keeping my fingers x that nothing was coming the other way, lol..
Our heatwave has disappeared now, its blowing a gale again but still no rain here, I`m even considering getting the hosepipe out, daft for October, cannot remember having a brown lawn at this time of year before, or toms still growing in my greenhouse,lol...

5 Oct, 2011

 

hywel windows great, one prob which will be fixed tomoz, we have had a long window made into a normal size with a panel from half way on the outside if you understand, but wrong panel so bringing that when made, other than that all great, baz will then build a false wall inside with a window ledge, so will be warmer in winter that way, cant believe they took all your windows out, brrrrr , i was cold one at a time, poor you. x
sue cant believe you havent had rain, we have had lots this summer and today wind, gales and heavt bursts of hale stone, awfull, hope you get rain soon ;o)
