Escape to the Sea

As you all know by now, I absolutely adore Cornwall; this is something I feel goes without saying as you can tell by my copious amounts of blog posts on the place. Cornwall is honestly like a second home for me or well I guess a third home as I now live in Manchester also but anyway as I was saying I love the place and after spending so much time down there along the years, it is certainly a place that I resonate with completely and somewhere I feel completely at home. Anyway, me and my family decided to make an impromptu getaway down there at the weekend as its been such a long time since our last visit.

After a mad rush packing on friday evening, literally chucking everything into my bag not knowing whether I had remembered everything, we hopped in the car and began our four hour long journey down to one of my favourite places. Despite our journey being extended by two more hours due to rush hour traffic, it wasn't all that bad as it meant that I was able to spend the entire journey both there and back with my earphones in listening to my absolute favourites Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, The Doors, Nina Simone, Patti Smith.. I think you get the picture. It was absolute bliss, there's just something so ethereal about listening to Dylan playing his harmonica as you drive along the country roads. For me car journeys are the absolute perfect way to have a little thinking time but it also allows me to do loads of writing and reading, I love it!

Ok, so this post turned out to be slightly more rambly than precedented but ah well! We basically spent the whole weekend roaming around the shops, streets and alleyways of the town; taking photos of the sea; indulging in cake on the beach in the rain and admiring all the quirks that Cornwall has to offer. Although, the weather was pretty miserable on Saturday and it rained the whole time we were at the beach, this didnt bother me in the slightest as there is nothing I lve more than sitting on a drizzly beach, a conception that a lot of people probably find a bit strange ha ha. I also spent my days roaming aimlessly round all of the little boho shops that were full of crystals, dream catchers, incense and the most amazing quirky clothes, I was completely in my element!

Overall it was a great little getaway! Cornwall is an absolute gem if you want to getaway but still stay in the UK and if you're like me and love Cornwall too, let me know some of your favourite places down there, I'd love to know for my next visit! Or if you're planning on going to visit, then feel free to ask if you'd like to know anymore of the best places to visit when you're down there, I'd love to help!
