I forgot the sunscreen; my mobile phone charger; our beach towel and my sun hat.
We enjoyed the fabulous beach at St. Ives with water in all shades of indigo blues and aquamarines.
We ate very well
We braved the freezing sea water along the causeway to St. Michael's Mount
And a school child's postcard to Barbara Hepworth, in her museum, summed up our thoughts:
Now I am catching up with blogging, laundry, etc.
Of course the rain is pouring now... How about you?
BTW I also came up with a new Blogfest idea. See my post this Thursday and grab the button.
Hi Madeleine .. raining - oh no .. it's still bright sunshine here!ReplyDelete
My land .. my mother's land, my grandmother's land .. and in fact my father's grandfather retired and died at 100 in Carbis Bay in 1953!
Mum's flat had a view across to Penzance Bay .. and her business was in Newlyn .. wonderful to see 'home' again ..
Lovely part of the world and so pleased you had such fantastic weather ..
Made my day - love the post and pictures .. my lighthouse .. we used to play on the rocks opposite as kids .. sorreeee .. better stop reminiscing now!
Welcome back .. Hilary
Sounds like a fabulous weekend away!! I'm having one of those soon, CAN'T WAIT!ReplyDelete
Great piccies! Nothing like bracing salty brine to waken the senses, next to a steamy romantic read!
It's been raining here (Pembrokeshire) all night, sun just breaking through.
It looks so relaxing. I hope it brought you back recharged.ReplyDelete
Hooorah for Cornwall and St Ives on a breezy, blustery but blue-skies filled break!!! Hooorah for St Ives!! They do butter don't they?!? Yay!!!ReplyDelete
Awww great to see you and hubby too! and that letter to Ms Hepworth is lovely!!! Take care
Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Thank God Madeleine, you remembered to join your hubbie for the holiday, else he would have been very disappointed ;)ReplyDelete
Great photos -- I too forgot my sunscreen yesterday at the beach, and now I look like Dr. Zoidberg on Futurama.ReplyDelete
I love the picture of you in jacket and sun hat - just about sums up the unpredictability of British weather! And yes, it's raining here too (although we had three lovely days so I can't complain!)ReplyDelete
It seems you forgot all the important things :)ReplyDelete
Great pictures, Madeleine.You seem to be having a wonderful time in all of them.... I simply love beaches. Can't get enough of them...
Aww, how nice of him to whisk you away to such a beautiful place. We've had our share of cool and rainy, it's finally been pretty nice here.ReplyDelete
And everytime I pack, I forget something important. Usually my hairbrush!
There is a wonderful chain in Texas called Le Madeleine's. I haven't eaten there in ages and I miss it so. Your lovely post is making my mouth water. Glad you enjoyed your weekend!ReplyDelete
Oh, I'm SO jealous. I really want go to Cornwall. And St Ives! Glad you had a good time.ReplyDelete
That looks amazing. I have only been to a beach once in my life. I was eleven and remember it burned my feet. I must go back some day with shoes. Hehehe.ReplyDelete

Lucky you! And so romantic.Can't wait for the blogfest.ReplyDelete
I'll join the blogfest. Can't wait to hear more about it. :DReplyDelete
Glad you had a wonderful weekend. We did this way. The most perfect summer weather, which I think is a first for Oregon since I've been here. [Going on 14 years]. Was just fantastic. Perfect skies for the observatory and nice outings with the husband unit.
Looks like a fun day at the beach!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a smashing good time! Nothing like a day at the beach and a good meal with your better half. Glad you enjoyed the day!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful beach! And I definitely noticed the name of the restaurant. :) Glad you had such a nice time!ReplyDelete
Lovely photos, what a gorgeous beach! I still haven't been to Cornwall even though I've been meaning to for ages! I'm glad you had a great time.ReplyDelete
nice little whisk away...love the beach...ReplyDelete
