Holiday in Cornwall

Had a few days in Cornwall to spend with family and celebrate my (40th) birthday. The weather was fantastic and we couldn't wait to spend a few hours on the beach. We drove to Porthtowan Beach on Saturday morning with the kids to have a kick about. We couldn't believe how warm it was, walking around in a short sleeved top and couldn't resist the ice cream! Met up with some more family and we sat outside the cafe for coffee and a chat. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the beach......and eating sand! I rolled up her trousers, took off her shoes and socks and she paddled in the water. She just loved it. There were lots of surfers in the sea also enjoying the good weather, although the waves were rough. Porthtowan is known for good surf.

In the evening we attended our friends' (Charlie and Katie) wedding party at the Coppice Inn, Lanner. They were married last month in Wiltshire, but for those who didn't attend the wedding, they laid on a hog roast at the Coppice. It was a fantastic night. Met up with some old friends and family.

On Sunday my family met at the Pandora Inn on the Helford River. What a setting, it is very beautiful. We all had carvery and my mum had organised a birthday cake for my birthday. Again,the weather was fantastic and all sat outside for a few drinks. My gran also came along, she didn't know we were in Cornwall as I wanted to surprise her.
