Well Hello ! I am back from my holiday in Cornwall, even though I have left my heart in St Ives!! Is,nt it hard to drop back into normal life when you have been on such a fab holiday? I feel all kind of unsettled and droopy and fell like a square peg in a round hole!! Do you fell like this after a holiday and how do you click out of it? Thought I would give you a quick glimpse of St ives and what I got up to on my hols!( I will try not to bore you with my holiday snaps)
This was the lovely old fisher mans cottage we stayed in in St ives in a street called The Digey, only 30 yards from the main shopping street ,Fore street , all the streets and cottages are so picturesque , and I never get sick of wardering and exploring all the little alleys and lanes, having a sneaky peek through cottage windows, there are some fab ones believe me!!
The great nautical door...
This is the Digey with its cobbled road and old fisher mans cottages ,mostly holoday cottages now,At the end of the street just visible is CathKidstons little emporium... The fab harbour beach, there are five beaches in St ives, its a perfect Holiday location and we go at least once or twice every year, and we have had in depth talks about moving there and even viewed a couple of properties.. so watch this space..Cath's little shop, it must be the prettiest CathKidston store in the country, don't you think? This is the display through the door.. Its tiny inside but they have a good selection of goodies, and i went in nearly every day, sad Ho that I am!!! I will reveal all latter.. plus there are so many other lovely shops in the town I have come home shopped out..
This was the great window display , love the car boot theme,, In fact I managed to visit two car boot sales in Cornwall ,but will tell all latter..
We managed to have a relaxing time but still packed loads in all the same. Nat ,took a friend so while they were doing teenager things D and I managed to sneak off and and do middle age stuff!! Sight seeing Swimming.. Relaxing with Daphne demauriers autobiography.( We visited fowey,do a post latter!) I stupidly burnt my legs in the sun while laying here.
We ate at some lovely restaurants and cafes , this was a the very stylish porthminster beach cafe, often featured in coast magazine , show you the interior latter. you will love it. Ate far too many of these
and these... My beautiful St Ives I was delighted too see the wild seals in the harbour again ,,so adorable , they come in too beg fish off the fishermen, and make doe eyes at their adoring public, with corus,s of oows and arrs from the tourist on the harbour!
Nat spent loads of time surfing and and living in a wet suit throwing him self of the harbour wall..
This was very surreal. we were just coming off porthmoer beach( near Tate modern) and I looked up and thought who's this idiot in a suit. it was a scorching hot day and he looked so out of place with all the surfer dudes and scantily clad people, then I realised it was the gorgeous Laurence Llewellyn's Bowen! He had a camera crew with him and was doing a tv program , I had a few seconds chat with him and found him charming and dishy! I was talking to a local shop owner and she told me the week before we were in ST ives. Johny Depp was in town , if I had seen him I would have never recovered as I am a little( A lot)in love with him!!! but Laurence was lovely!!
But alas the 9 days sped past and we had to pack up and so sadly leave . my cathkidston bag ready to be loaded into the car but I was,nt!! until we meet again St Ives....
