The good thing about Cornwall is that there are two coastlines for you to choose from. If the top has the best weather you can pick a beach along the top side. If the bottom has the best weather, off you pop to the other side. Such was our plan. We eagerly watched the weather report each morning and then planned our destination for the day to ensure optimum chances of sunshine.
It worked pretty well too, as you can see from the pictures above. That picture postcard view at the top there is Kynance Cove, just up a touch from the Lizard at the very tippy of the bottom toe. There's quite a steep, winding route down to the beach but well worth it and stunningly beautiful.
We managed to avoid the worst of the weather until Thursday, when it caught up with us at Land's End. It was a little blustery and even drizzly but we stuck it out in true British holidaying fashion and stayed until we had seen all that it had to offer. A Pirates of the Caribbean show, two film 'experiences', a quest, a petting farm, a children's playground, the famous sign post, the 'End to End' exhibition as well as numerous shops and eateries and of course, the First and Last pub. My my, things have certainly changed since my last visit!
Little Miss was very excited to visit Flambards again. She went last year with Nannie and Grandad and was pleased with the fact that she knew where everything was and took on the role of tour guide with much gusto.
We only really had one rainy day and that was the last one. But, a meandering drive, some leisurely meals and the Board Games Olympics (me and LM in tied second place with 1 gold, 2 silvers and a bronze each) easily filled the time.
Isn't it a shame though that all that waits for you when you return home is the dreaded unpacking, a mountain of washing which turns into never-ending ironing and in our case, a dead fridge.
It's enough to make you long for another holiday...
