I got home from Cornwall at 7.30am on Saturday, bleary-eyed, with my stomach full of nothing but Watsits. A pretty standard British holiday, if you ask me. I had flu/allergies/whatever-that-thing-was all week, but still managed to do some wonderful things while I was away…
We visited Polperro, a gorgeous fishing village that was just down the hill from our accommodation.
We followed the narrow streets round to the Model Village.
We stole a day to revisit Newquay. Parking was still extortionately priced, but we had an amazing fried breakfast and enjoyed lounging on the beach.
Bodmin Jail was an interesting afternoon trip. Curiously, I thought it wasn’t quite as atmospheric as I was expecting, but the exhibits were fascinating!
There was a big blue, terrifying room full of cells, each one housing a different crime. Some were pretty grotesque, and scary… (and this photo is of one of the gentler stories!)
It wouldn’t be a holiday without getting in some reading time.
We also did a lot of swimming, eating, board gaming and laughing. And trudging through the rain, of course!
