This is the last trip before “nesting” for baby girl #2. We opted for a road trip with our London buddies and had a blast – minus the cloudy/windy weather (really, July, come on!).
We left London and didn’t get into Cornwall until early evening since we just had to make a pit stop in Bristol for Costco – warehouse (heaven) of bulk goodies.
What stood out about Cornwall:
📷: Love their honor system of paying for things along the road (just leave the money in a box and take what you want).
📷: Fish n’ chips everywhere. Our first Cornwall meal – super fresh fish of course. Why am I surprised?
Love the stone houses throughout the city (we stayed in an adorable cottage that really did a stellar job with upping the look n’feel of their IKEA furniture).
📷: Abigail couldn’t wait to see the moon and stars with this sunroof.
Anyhow, we promised the kids it would be about the beach on Saturday (rain or shine) so they got it. We did a stop at the Minack outdoor theatre (next to Porthcurno beach) prior and wow that is cool! Imagine watching a show outdoors perched on a cliff and hearing the Atlantic ocean water. Amazing and the stone seating had these cool engravings as well.
Misty and windy at Porthcurno beach – clearly overlooked once she saw the abundant sand. I would recommend this beach (lifeguard on duty) – nice sand, plenty of shells to pick, not too crazy waves, and water is gorgeous.
📷: Path we took from the car park. You can also walk down the cliff from Minack theatre.
📷:: Be inspired to take the plunge into the unknown.
Saint Michael’s Mount – A must go! If you go after lunch, you can probably walk across the path but looks like before noon you would need to take a quick boat ride over (£2 adults, £1 child).
📷:: A serious historical sight to take in – Saint Michael’s Mount.
📷:: View from the top of Saint Michael’s Mount. Majestic!
📷:: View from Island Cafe (pretty good food & plenty of indoor/outdoor seating).
📷:: It’s crazy how the cobblestone walkway (approx. 500 metres) dries up quickly and isn’t slippery.
And that wraps up what we did in Cornwall. Definitely would say we missed many sights and probably staying at least 3 nights would be ideal for both driving or training to Cornwall.
