St Ives you never disappoint, you little gem of beautiful blue sea, creamy sandy beach and hub of of local delights..by this I mean fudge, ice cream you know the situ! .
Back in gloomy February my dad suggested booking a summer mini break to Cornwall and in particular Hayle near St Ives, I think I probably squealed with excitement, July couldn’t come soon enough and already I was planning in my head all the lovely places we would be visiting!
Dad, along with the rest of the family arrived a couple days beforehand, tested out the BBQ (tough job!) and sent pictures of some truly tropical looking beaches whilst I was sat at my work desk (thanks dad!) So when Wednesday arrived we were packed and on the road by 8am ready to meet the family and start our mini break.
As the football season is still on its summer break, I get to have my husband back on a Saturday for a few more weeks, so we decided to plan some day trips and make the most of having full weekends off together. My in-laws stay in Looe a lot (which is South East Cornwall) and they happened to be holidaying down there last weekend, Up early as normal with an 11 month old, we decided why not jump in the car and head down to meet them, get some fish and chips and spend a day by the Cornish sea.
Living in Devon means that I am fortunate to have beautiful stretches of coastline within minutes of home to explore and enjoy however, I don’t appreciate this enough and have decided to make it my mission to get to know Devon a little more!
This week beautiful Budleigh Salterton was on my hit list, with its perfect pebble beach stretching for 2 miles and lagoon like sea, Ian and I wondered why it had taken so long to return to this peaceful sea side town!
