As I was going to St Ives....

...Spent another glorious week in my favourite English Town last week. I love the place, it has so much character, beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants, and to top everything off, we rented an amazing holiday home with a huge decking overlooking Porthmeor beach. The only thing that wasn't a 10/10 was the weather, but hey, this is Cornwall. We had one very wet day and some drizzly days but a few glorious beach days too.

Here's the view from the double tiered full length decking of the house toward Porthmeor Beach, during the day and evening. The living room had full length glazing that opened out onto the deck.
Portmeor Beach is a bit of a Surfer's haven. Me, I can't see the big attraction but each to their own. The water was cold!

My little lad  loved the beach, even when the weather was overcast.
Marazion is another favourite destination with the picturesque St Michaels Mount dominating all vistas.
We also visited Trebah Exotic Garden (for the umpteenth time - I never tire of it) but it was a very wet day and we missed a lot of the gardens. I don't mind rain personally, but my wife and inlaws are not too keen on being soaked to the skin to look at bamboos and treeferns and the like!
Overall, we had a great time!
