Lazy days

Wow! Aren't we lucky with this beautiful sunny weather. I just keep pinching myself when I wake up to yet another day of cloudless skies and light breeze.

I think Cornwall has more than its fair share of rain or 'mizzle', so I'm very grateful for a chance to enjoy the best this special place has to offer.

If you're visiting the far west of Cornwall, then I recommend a visit to the beaches near Sennen and this little gem, Porthgwarra.

A rock arch cut into the cliff leads the way. Apparently it was dug by tin miners from the nearby village  to give farmers access to the beach with their horse and carts. They would come down to collect seaweed to use as fertiliser on their crops.

Today, it's the perfect place to relax and let your thoughts drift away.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside....

Now, I don't want to make you jealous or anything *cough* but the weather is forecast to be gloriously sunny and warm for the next week down here in Cornwall. As this is quite a rarity I am going to try to eek out every last ray of sunshine and get my shoes well and truly sandy. 

We'll be dipping our toes in the water....

Exploring what the sea has washed up.....

And collecting all manner of interesting finds (alive and dead!)

Hope you get to enjoy the sun wherever you are too.
